Can Rantie do the business this time?

Tokelo Rantie will need to produce the goods soon and he seems well aware of that. I kind of get nervous for him with the tag of the biggest signing AFCB have ever made hanging around his neck. Still, he has shown a speed of turn and quickness of thought to liven up any match and his finishing ability may soon get the chance to register as the ball has not really fallen kindly for him in front of goal yet. Still, he managed a sublime turn and pass to see Ryan Fraser get his first goal for the Cherries in AFCB's last home game.

I want to see Rantie with a striker alongside him for 90 minutes.
While the ball falls to Grabban in front of goal like a magnet I am not so worried that Tokelo is still on a blank, but for his confidence I want him to score. He so nearly managed that against Blackburn that you get the feeling it is coming. I also believe that when he gets one goal he is the type of player that could easily go on the rampage and get two or three. With the exception of Pitman (and his goals are mainly from the penalty spot), I don't see AFCB's other goalscorers often getting more than a single goal in a match.

Rantie is going to break his duck soon - trust me!
At Elland Road he had to play most of the match as a loan striker and things were not much better for him in the Blackburn Rovers game. So if he can have 90 minutes with a strike partner on the pitch perhaps we will finally see what the South African can do. 

John Williams at BBC Radio Solent can't stop raving about TK but we need to see some return on that investment. You can't ask for a much better game to do that in than against Millwall at home before the international break. Come one TK, break the net for us and well be delighted to celebrate with you. UTCIAD!
