Looking forward to Molineux

I suspect many AFCB fans looked at the fixture list and picked out this game against Wolves as one of the must go to games. Visiting a big stadium is always a special day and to think that Bournemouth are now playing at such venues as Molineux is quite amazing. While AFCB are only in their second season back in the Championship since their last appearance back in the 1980s, it feels like the Cherries belong in the mix up against the big teams and they don't come much bigger than Wolverhampton wanderers. 
AFCB will close ranks when they take on Wolves.
A few injuries have not helped Kenny Jackett pick a settled team for the last few games and yet I am sure they will be up for a home match against the high flying Cherries. A win for Wolves could catapult then up the league by four of five places so this is a key match for them just like it is for AFCB to keep up with the three teams above them.

I will be looking to see how Danny Graham does if he features for Wolves having signed on a month's loan from Sunderland. he has to hit the ground running and has already see 90 minutes go past against Brentford and will know just a little more about Wolves now that he has been there a couple of weeks. I expect Jackett to keep the front two of Graham and Sako in the starting line up to take on Bournemouth, but both players will be under pressure to register goals at home. Having not scored in their last three games it can't be easy for a striker to be running out at Moulineux and to be making your debut won't make it any easier for Graham, but if they do get an early goal AFCB will really be backs against the wall. 

It is imperative that the Cherries not only start well but get behind Wolves back line early on and give them enough doubts at the back to be unnerved. It should be a fascinating contest and AFCB should go into the match thinking how much a good win here can set them up for this next month.
