Resurgent Bournemouth Next For Reds

Last week saw Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe mark one year back in the hotseat on the South Coast after he made the surprising decision to leave Championship side Burnley and return to his former club.

The Cherries were in the relegation zone in League One at that time but will travel to the City Ground just outside the play-off places in the Championship and were comfortable 5-2 winners against Millwall last time out.

"I'll be very lucky to have another year in management where things go as well as they have," he told BBC South. 

"It was an incredible year, starting off with the unbeaten run which we didn't envisage and finishing off with the promotion which we didn't expect and a good start to this season."

Former Forest loanee Elliott Ward joined the Cherries in the summer and has been a regular starter in Howe's defence this season. The goal threat has been provided by Lewis Grabban with 7 in the league and Brett Pitman with 4.
