Can AFCB fans expect a fourth win in a row?

The game against Middlesbrough is certainly one that I am looking forward to. Bournemouth have found that consistency that is finally giving them points and even if they have not been playing at their very best in the last two games they have done enough to collect all the points on offer. At home, in February, AFCB had been finding goals hard to come by but having seen what they did to Doncaster it would not be a total surprise if the team find that kind of form against Middlesbrough today.
Can Ritchie and Fraser up their goal count today?
What worries me slightly is the fact that it is the third game in 8 days and that is tough. Tougher still will be next Tuesday's game against Charlton. But if your team is winning the games can't come quick enough for supporters. You can see why so much importance is put on recovery between games and while Arter and Fraser might be the ones needing most attention before Saturday's game I also hope that Kermorgant has responded to treatment over in Rome.

It is asking a lot to keep the wins coming but at home I believe AFCB are more than a match for most teams now in the Championship and the players will be keen to show that they can keep a good run going. It was clear to me that Matt Ritchie in particular is having a real go at shooting whenever he is somewhere near the box with a bit of space, and the tactic certainly paid off for Grabban in mid-week. The re-emergence of Coulibaly back in the fold has also sharpened up the focus of one or two and there is real competition to play on the wings now.

While Middlesbrough are a decent side with some quality players they will not be looking forward to visiting such an inform team this weekend. We can of course help unsettle them by making lots of noise and if AFCB get an early goal I hope the volume is really jacked up. The best league position that the club has previously achieved of finishing 12th in the Championship is under serious threat now. It's up to us to help the players keep their confidence up and the run going. UTCIAD!
