SIcne Eddie Howe has returned to Dean Court, the Cherries have seen a mini-revival which has led to a decent unbeaten run in which (to date) only two points have been dropped.
Defender Tommy Elphick is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "We are making small strides. We have got a lot of catching up to do and, slowly, we are getting there and closing the gaps that we need to be closing. A lot of people are saying it is one of the weakest the league has been for a few years, but I don’t believe that. I believe there are a few clubs that are setting out in different styles now and making it hard for teams, and there are still some good individuals in the league. We have just got to keep winning, keep plugging away and trying to close these gaps. All the while there are points possible, there is definitely time. With the form we are in at the moment, we have just got to carry it on and see how far it takes us".
