AFC Bournemouth right back Simon Francis praised the Cherries supporters following the clubs first home win of the season.
Buoyed by the appearance of returning manager Eddie Howe and assistant Jason Tindall ahead of the game, the North Stand launched into a chorus of 'Eddie Howe's Barmy Army' from the second half kick-off and right through both Cherries goals only pausing for a period to sing 'Oh Eddie Howe'.
The atmosphere appeared to really lift the players towards their first home win since May and Francis believes that if the atmosphere continues then the Cherries form will improve as a consequence.
Francis told the Daily Echo...
"...There was a buzz around the club and you feed off that as a player. I thought the supporters were different class and were probably the loudest and best they have been at home all season. They have been top-drawer away from home and, if we can keep that type of atmosphere in home games, we will pick up a lot more points.
"It was a much-needed win and I think it had been coming. I don`t think where we are in the table reflects how good a team we are and how good the squad is. But the table doesn`t lie and we deserve to be where we are because we haven`t performed well enough.
"We are all hoping that what has happened off the field with the new management coming in will turn things round. I am sure it will and we can start looking up the table."
