Elphick: Strikers offer something different

AFC Bournemouth stand in captain Tommy Elphick believes that the Cherries versatility up front is key to the sides success.

Whilst Frank Demouge has left the club on loan to Dutch club Roda, the Cherries still possess a lot of options up front.

From the strength and experience of Steve Fletcher, to the pace of Lewis Grabban and Josh McQuoid, to the natural finishing of Matt Tubbs and Brett Pitman, all the strikers offer something different for manager Eddie Howe.

Elphick told the Daily Echo...

"...Whether it is Tubbsy (Matt Tubbs), Brett (Pitman), Grabbs (Lewis Grabban) or whoever the gaffer decides to choose, everyone has got something different.

"Sometimes, you are only as good as your strikers. They help the back four keep clean sheets and they are certainly doing that at the moment by taking a bit of pressure off us.

"The first thing teams look at when they come here now is how they are going to stop us. Sometimes, that plays into our hands a little bit more and, sometimes, it doesn`t."
