Is Daniels the man to make the difference?

Charlie told me he was fit and ready to go last night so it is
up to Eddie Howe now to decide when it is right to
bring him back to the team
Charlie Daniels has been out of the team since the 2-1 home win against Huddersfield Town in January. He is back now and training hard, but can he get straight back into the team in the last four games? I believe that he could have the energy and intensity to help AFCB reach the play-offs and has proved in the past that he can be one of the leaders on the pitch with his dynamic runs up the wing.

I would particularly like him to play in the Ipswich game when AFCB are going to have to be at their very best to pin back Mick McCarthy's team away from home. If that is to come true though Charlie will need to get some minutes in the Sheffield Wednesday game and getting into the team at the moment will be tricky. Eddie Howe will be balancing up the dead ball specialities of Ian Harte against Charlie's energy and Adam Smith's crossing and you could easily make a case for any of the three.
Will we see Charlie tomorrow? I expect him to play some part in the game.
But Charlie has been Eddie Howe's main choice for the last two seasons and barring injuries he has easily held down a place in the team once he has been given the chance of a run. The Cherries have not has a clean sheet for a few games now and if Charlie can put more emphasis on the team going forwards then perhaps the opportunities for the opposition to have a go at our defence will be more limited. It is just possible that Charlie's return is perfectly timed for having a stab at a top six finish.
