Good to see recognition but AFCB are not there yet

I've been scanning the pages on the internet about AFCB and it is clear that the players are starting to get recognised for their excellent performances so far this month. AFCB's official site says Pitman is among those selected to win NPower League One player of the month for March and both he and Matt Ritchie are in the Sky Sports' Team of the Week. It was funny that Sky asked whether we could keep hold of Matt Ritchie? Let me tell you, his asking price will have gone through the roof and I can't see AFCB wanting to sell its new prized asset any time soon.

It may not come as a surprise to some of you that the Cherries have racked up another seven wins on the bounce having already beaten the record undefeated run earlier this season. But hands up how many of you really thought that we would recover after those five defeats, in mid-February to early March, with such style? It has been another incredible ride and I seem to be among quite a few of you who are finding it hard to get to sleep at the moment.

Momentum surely counts for a lot now and AFCB can go into their last three matches in a positive frame of mind. Tommy Elphick is right when he says let the other teams worry about the points we already have on the board. Don't tell me that it is better to have games in hand at this stage.

Apparently, last night the Sheffield Utd players were kept behind for an hour after the final whistle to hear their manager's displeasure at their performance. Yes, we could get over taken but who is under more pressure at the moment? Being an underdog is not such a bad thing and Eddie Howe still says we are not favourites to go up.
