Howe: A great occasion

Howe: A great occasion

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe believes that the Cherries game against Swindon Town on Saturday will prove to be a great occasion.

The Cherries head into the game on the back of a seventeen game unbeaten run in all competitions which coincided with Eddie Howe's return to the south coast after a spell in charge of Championship side Burnley.

The home sides League One form has seen the side go unbeaten in eight, including three consecutive victories without conceding.

Despite not securing a win at Dean Court until October, the Cherries now boast the second best home record in the division.

Swindon come into the game with a run of four consecutive victories, scoring 16 goals without reply.

Howe told BBC Radio Solent...

'It's another tough game for us, But it will be a great occasion with two in-form teams in the division so it should be a really good spectacle.'

'We are aware of Swindon's strengths. They've had a really good goal scoring run and they keep clean sheets as well so it's a good combination and we'll have to be at our best, You want to see stadiums full and people trying to get in who can't get a seat. That is the ideal world.

'It will be a test for us because next season, regardless of what level we are at, we want to see the stadium full and it's up to us to bring an exciting brand of football and hopefully the town will really get behind the team and I would say, so far, they have really done that.'
