Rovers leak goals on the road

AFCB have been the top scorers in the Championship for quite a while now. We have seen some big away wins but the Cherries have found it hard at home to find the form they were able to show at Blackpool and Birmingham earlier in the season. I am not sure why that is but the visit of Blackburn Rovers just might open the door to a few more goals because Rovers are not a team that you would put money on to keep a clean sheet away from Ewood Park. 

You have to go back to 28 December to find the last clean sheet for Rovers when they were at home to Middlesbrough, but away from home that stretches back even further to September when they had a 0-1 win over Fulham.
Defences on both sides might be struggling when
 Blackburn Rovers come to Dean Court.
If AFCB are to score well though they will need more accuracy in front of goal than we saw in the last home match against Huddersfield. That game saw AFCB hit 20 shots and seven were on target. In recent games the Cherries have been creating around 20 chances and yet you have to go back to mid-December when AFCB smashed Cardiff 5-3 to find a home game when AFCB scored more that two goals. 

Getting back to the cut-throat goal action that saw the Cherries quickly climb the table is now what Eddie Howe needs to find again. The team has become a little tentative of late with its passing at the start of games at home and it would help the team to start positively and really get Rovers on the back foot from the off. The Cherries had a relatively good first half at home against Huddersfield and Derby, but as we know it is about setting the tempo and finding the net and Eddie Howe has the players coming back now to change things if need be.

All Departments rakes over the fall out from the Cherries defeat at Nottingham Forest last Wednesday night. I'm hoping that he can find some positives despite the Cherries recent dip in results.
