Cherries: Our fate is down to us says Bradders

BOSS Lee Bradbury has told his under-pressure charges there will be no hiding place at Notts County tomorrow. Cherries travel to Nottingham on the back of a barren run that has seen them fail to win any of their past seven league encounters, with Rochdale's win over Southampton on Tuesday seeing Bradbury's men slip out of the play-off reckoning for the first time since November. The Cherries boss told the Echo: It's very disappointing to look at the table and see where we are at the moment. But we can't rely on other people doing us favours we've said all along it's up to us to look after our own fate. It's up to us to get a result tomorrow. I've told the lads that I don't want anybody hiding we want men out there who are going to be responsible, who are going to want the ball all the time and want to play football. It's a time for people to stand up and be counted. County, a point adrift of safety after a club record eight defeats on the spin, on Monday prised manager Martin Allen from Barnet in a bid to save their League One status following Paul Ince's sacking earlier this month. Bradbury added: He's an eccentric guy and will get them up for it. We know they will try to bully us, but we also know they are low on confidence and we'll be looking to make that first 25 minutes count and turn the crowd back on them.
