Howe won't get carried away

04 Mar 2009 - 14:45:08

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe admits there is now a different type of pressure on his team after the 2-0 win against Aldershot Town lifted the Cherries out of the relegation zone for the first time this season.

Bournemouth have clawed back the 17-point deduction they were handed for moving into administration and, with 12 games of the season left, have finally overtaken Grimsby Town.

Howe remains cautious though, telling the Bournemouth Echo: "We need to keep up the momentum and keep trying to win games.

"I know it's easy to say but there's a different kind of pressure on us now. We're the ones to be caught, which is sometimes more difficult.

"But we can't worry about what other teams are doing and we've just got to concentrate on our job. That's what we've been doing recently and it's served us well.

"Of course I'm pleased we're out of the bottom two, but now we've got to make sure we stay out of it.

"I don't think we need to change an awful lot. We just need to take it one game at a time and keep plugging away."
