Cherries: Old heads will be key factor

13 April 2010 07:00
WISE head Lee Bradbury is vowing to draw on his vast experience in a bid to help Cherries plot a smooth route over the promotion line.

The veteran campaigner made a rapid recovery from an ankle injury to play 90 minutes in the 2-1 defeat at Lincoln City and he is again set to feature against Hereford United at Dean Court tonight (7.45pm).

After results in League Two went their way at the weekend, Cherries will be bidding to extend their healthy six-point lead over the promotion-chasing play-off pack.

But although the end is in sight, 34-year-old Bradbury is not taking anything for granted.

Along with fellow senior players such as Steve Fletcher and Sammy Igoe, the former Portsmouth and Manchester City man is planning to help guide Cherries through the crucial final stages.

He told the Echo: A lot of the lads wouldn't have been in these sort of situations before and we have.

All we can do is try to keep them calm and try to do what we do in every match and concentrate on it, game by game.

The main thing is not getting too excited until we are promoted and then hopefully we can have a party.
