AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe believes the supporters should be proud of the teams efforts since his return to the club.
Howe and his assistant Jason Tindall both returned to Dean Court in October after a 21 month spell in charge of Championship side Burnley.
Ever since it was announced that they would return the Cherries have gone on an unbeaten run of form which was extended against Swindon Town to eighteen games in all competitions. It's an undefeated run which matches the club record set in 1982, when David Webb`s side went 18 games without defeat on route to promotion from the old division four.
Howe's squad also hold ambitions of promotion this season, after climbing up the table from the relegation places to the brink of the play-offs, but the two dropped points following Swindon's late equaliser has meant that the gap to the top teams has drifted over the weekend.
Howe told the Daily Echo...
"...Hopefully, the supporters can see what a great run and a great effort it has been from the players. They should be very proud of them to have equalled a club record. The club has been here a long time so the players deserve a lot of credit for showing the character to match the record."
"It is a great battle, a great race and there are a lot of good teams up there. As we are playing catch-up as such, every time we don`t win, the end goal seems even further away. Although we are on an excellent run, we still have a lot of work to do.
"Every time we don`t win, it puts more pressure on us. We are very happy with what we have done in terms of getting back into the race but it is really important we don`t let the top teams get too far away...'
