AFCB can look to start their charge up the table

We know that the Championship is a difficult league and to get back to back wins is extremely hard at any stage of the season. That has marked the top teams out from the others. One minute AFCB look like they are struggling a bit against some of the sides and then they play like they could tare any one apart.  
Eunan O'Kane is becoming a real leader on the pitch.
There has been lots of talk about the team not shooting often enough and passing too much around the box in looking for that opening. I don't think that is necessarily true although we all want to see more shots on target. The problem is in working so hard to make golden opportunities there are occasions when a snap shot could just take a keeper by surprise. It's more a case of mixing things up a little more in the final third and having the odd pot shot instead of always trying to engineer the perfect goal. AFCB supporters are sounding more like Arsenal fans every day!

The point is the team is not doing badly. A couple of wins and the table does not look so daunting or the teams in it. While AFCB managed a win in mid-week, most of the other results also worked out quite well for them with several draws. If AFCB can start to think about the matches one at a time and just trying to play positively the table will take care of itself.

It also helps that the Cherries are attracting good players like Lee Camp and Adam Smith. It is also expected that the Cherries will complete the signing of Yann Kermorgant later this morning as discussions continue, while Rhoys Wiggins is said to be back on the Cherries wanted list. These are good times. I believe the players are enjoying the challenge as noted in Grabban decision to stay and Eunan O'Kane's statement that he wants to reach the Premiership one day with AFCB rather than with another club. It's all positive stuff and AFCB fans should realise by now that they have a team to be very proud of.
