Tindall: We do have to hit the ground running
AFC Bournemouth assistant manager Jason Tindall wants to 'hit the ground running', following his and manager Eddie Howe's returns to Dean Court.
The duo announced that they would be leaving Championship side Burnley on Friday evening and were paraded in front of the Cherries supporters ahead of the game against Leyton Orient on Saturday.
Howe and Tindall watched on from the Energy Consulting box, as former Cherries coach Dennis Rofe led the team to their first home victory of the season.
The duo took training for the first time on Monday and Tindall believes it will take him and Eddie Howe a few weeks to assess the large squad assembled under previous managers Lee Bradbury and Paul Groves, but Tindall hopes the team can hit the ground running and recover from a poor start to the season which has left the club in the relegation zone.
Tindall told the Daily Echo...
'...We have a big squad which we have to look at and make decisions on and certainly over the next couple of weeks we will be doing that. We`ll be looking at everyone individually and making decisions on what we see and then we`ll take it from there.
"It`s a similar situation in some respects as the club was in the bottom four when Eddie and I took over before, so we do have to hit the ground running and that`s what we intend to do. From what everyone has been saying, our appointment seemed to give everyone a lift at the weekend and the crowd was fantastic. You could see the difference they made.
"Our intention is to pick up results quickly because there is a good squad here that has probably under-achieved. That is something we want to put right as quickly as possible...
