Cherries: Howe and Tindall on Shrews test

26 February 2010 07:00
Cherries' managerial duo have dismissed the prospect of last season's hammering at the Prostar Stadium having an effect on their team tomorrow.[LNB] Last term, during Jimmy Quinn's reign, Cherries endured an afternoon to forget at the Shropshire venue as they were on the receiving end of a 4-1 thumping.[LNB] But with a lot of water having passed under the bridge since, manager Eddie Howe does not expect that to play on his charges' minds when they take on high-flying Shrewsbury Town (3pm).[LNB] He said: I don't think that will have much effect so much has happened since then and that is history now.[LNB] We'll be looking to put on a good performance and follow up the good performance from Tuesday.[LNB] The challenge now is to add more consistency to our play and try to put a little run together.[LNB] We are coming to the stage of the season where a few teams are in good form having won six or seven in a row and that type of run can make or break a season now.[LNB] Assistant boss Jason Tindall, who was Quinn's number two last time Cherries travelled to Shrewsbury, added: It was a difficult day. We got well and truly beaten. They battered us, especially in the first half, and rightly won the game.[LNB] But we've come a very long way since then.[LNB] Howe is expecting a tough test against Paul Simpson's outfit, who have lost just twice in 11 league games.[LNB] He said: They are on a good run and are one of our rivals, so it is a really important game for us.[LNB] Howe confirmed that was not expecting to welcome back any of his injured stars and added that in-form midfielder Danny Hollands, who sat out Tuesday's win over Barnet with a knee problem, was again set to be sidelined.[LNB]
