On Saturday against promotion hopefuls Doncaster Rovers, the Cherries picked up their first clean sheet under Howe and the Cherries manager praised their performance.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

'...They stuck their heads on the block on Saturday and won their aerial duels, which is so important against two players like Paynter and Brown, who are aerial targets. They dealt with set-plays and their positioning was really good.

"They are two winners and are two lads that want to do well and achieve things...'
