Tubbs: Hartlepool is a chance to put things right

Tubbs: Hartlepool is a chance to put things right

AFC Bournemouth striker Matt Tubbs believes that having little time between games gives the Cherries a chance to quickly get back to winning ways.

After going eighteen games in all competitions unbeaten since the return of Eddie Howe and Jason Tindall to Dean Court, the Cherries have now lost back to back games in the past week.

A narrow 1-0 defeat to Premier League side Wigan Athletic knocked Howe's men out of the FA Cup on Tuesday and a 3-1 defeat to Walsall ended the unbeaten run, with the Cherries off form.

Tubbs, who was also guilty of not being on top of his game hopes that the dip in form will end against Hartlepool.

Despite the weather the home side are hopeful that the game will be on.

Hartlepool are currently bottom of the league having lost their last six games at home.

Tubbs told afcb.co.uk...

'...All teams have a dip at some time in the season, and hopefully that`s ours gone now.

"Good teams who get promoted go on long unbeaten runs and we have done that - you are not going to go a whole season unbeaten.

"We now need to get another run going and we will be straight back up there. We have character here and Hartlepool coming up so soon gives us the opportunity to put things right."

Unfortunately we had a dip at the start of the season when Groves was knocking about. So we really, really can't afford another one at all. We need to stay solid, lethal & consistent to show who the giants of League 1 are.

Yep, agree with Will, we need a much stronger performance tonight to keep the pressure on our rivals. Hopefully young Ryan will get some game time.
