Town v Bournemouth

Town v Bournemouth

Whilst we were beating Tranmere, 1-0, on Tuesday night Bournemouth were being beaten, also 1-0, at home by Swansea. The straight form line therefore suggests that we should continue on our winning ways on Saturday. Swansea, however, have certainly improved since we met them. The Cherries are alongside Tranmere in the league with 13 points.

We both came out of Tuesday?s matches with no new injuries. That was a relief for the Cherries who have six of their squad injured and can ill afford to lose anyone else.. David Mirfin played 45 minutes for the reserves on Wednesday but it must be unlikely he will make the bench this week. One person who won?t be on the bench for us is John McAliskey who has gone on loan to torquay.

We played the Cherries twice in quick succession last season. We drew with them, in Bournemouth 2-2, immediately after Christmas and then beat them a month later at the Galpharm 3-2. Our goals were from Abbott and a brace from Beckett. We spent most of the second half on the defensive.

Their disciplinary record is far better than ours; apart from one straight red their players have only picked up six yellows compared with our eleven!

I envisage another close game for Town but we should be able to make home advantage tell.
