The Cherries need to raise their form for a night to remember!

AFCB are now unbeaten in their last 11 games. The run has contained four draws and five clean sheets and the task of getting a win against either Bolton or Charlton is likely to need even more resolve from the Cherries if they are to succeed. A win against Bolton will do it so I am fully prepared for a late night party  tonight. Work the next day may just have to wait!

In their last match against Sheffield Wednesday, AFCB were unable to dominate as much as we have been used to seeing them control games. AFCB did hold the share of possession at 62 per cent but Sheffield Wednesday had plenty of chances and hit six shots on target compared to the Cherries' four. It didn't feel that AFCB were comfortable at any point during the game even when they went 2-1 up and that is something that won't sit well with Eddie Howe. When the team has worked extremely hard to comeback and get ahead it was devastating to see Sheffield Wednesday have an easy opportunity to get the draw.
AFCB just need one big effort now.
AFCB did not play that high up the pitch in the first half and when it came to the second half they also fell back deep when they had got the lead..Sometimes it is hard to continue doing the positive things that get you in front. It is natural to try and hold on to what you have and to protect it, but it is not these kind of games that  have characterised AFCB's season this year in any great number. As long as the team draws on the positives from the game there was still much to take out of the Sheffield game that was good, and if AFCB are to raise their form Eddie Howe will need the team to focus on the fact that they came back and scored two at home. Had there been a clean sheet, there would be less to worry about. So keeping Bolton out has to be the first aim when the two teams meet and not falling behind, because AFCB  usually find a way to score. 

We need a special night today - a night to remember. It is probably vital that the Cherries take this first opportunity to get up,otherwise the Charlton game could be a very nervy affair. UTCIAD!
