AFCB can play with freedom up at Burnley

Bournemouth can go into the game with Burnley just playing for pride and while that could be beneficial, it could also be a recipe for trouble. Bournemouth tend to be anxious when they have a lot of pressure on the result and it is not often that we see them safe early and playing with freedom, but the party atmosphere at Turf Moor could encourage them to have some fun in trying to upset the odds.
Defoe and Pugh may be hoping for an appearance at Turf Moor.
Burnley will rightly be favourites for this game even if they were turned over 5-0 in their last game against Arsenal. Sean Dyche did not seem to concerned with that result, but he won't want the season to fall flat after the marvellous results they have been getting all season long. It is a long way for AFCB players to have to travel and they have themselves been able to celebrate this week after finishing their campaign safely, and this game may well feel like an unnecessary match which simply has to be played.

AFCB's attitude will be the decisive element I feel in this game. If they want to give it everything we could have a cracker of a game, but f they are thinking of the beach it could be a cake walk for Burnley. AFCB's away form has been indifferent and without a big travelling away fan they will feel like it is 11 players taking on quite an army at Burnley. But this has often worked in AFCB's favour to feel like the big underdog.


Eddie Howe can almost have a couple of days off, but he won't be happy of the Cherries roll over easy at Turf Moor. He has to use his powers of persuasion to get the players in the right frame of mind for one last hard test. It is probably a more difficult game in that respect ion any that AFCB have had in the last month. If Eddie can make the result matter to the players though he will get a performance. UTCIAD!
