The Cherries need to stick together

It will be difficult in the games to come without AFCB's leading striker but there is a tough mentality about this squad that I still believe will carry them through these tests. They have perhaps the hardest game this weekend that they could wish for as Watford do tend to play well against the Cherries. But in a sense I think that is good as the players can focus on what they need to do to get the three points.

Many will now consider that AFCB's best chance of staying up has gone. However, write off this team though at your peril. They have always been up against the odds and have come through every time. Yes, the Premier League is a higher level and things have gone against the team but the players can't afford to let it affect them and taking on a team that has just come up themselves is a game that they know they can win.

I feel that such instances are either the making of a team. The players will be backing each other now to do a job and to win some points to make matters better and if the Cherries can get on a bit of a run of points it will certainly build the belief. With the international break also not far away there is the possibility that some of the players will go away again, so the team spirit before then needs to be strong and the desire to get something against Watford will be very high indeed.

Harry Arter will also soon hopefully be back competing for a spot and AFCB need a bit of good news like that. Whether he is ready in time for one of the next few October matches is hard to tell from the outside, but I hope he only comes back when he is fully ready.
