Howe: It has been a long road

Howe: It has been a long road

AFC Bournemouth officially completed the job of playing catch-up on Tuesday night with a 2-1 away victory against Crewe.

Four months to the day of when it was announced that Eddie Howe and Jason Tindall were officially returning to Dean Court, two goals from Brett Pitman, Eddie Howe's first signing since returning to the south coast, sealed the victory and the three points which puts AFC Bournemouth top of League One table with 14 games remaining.

It's a remarkable transformation, in just 21 league games, the Cherries have climbed from the relegation places (21st), to top, closing and surpassing a 19 point gap that Tranmere Rovers had managed to build during the first 11 games of the season.

During those 21 games the Cherries have won 15, drawn 5 and lost just once (Points Per Game = 2.38). Scoring 45 and conceding 19.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

'...It is nice and I like to see it.

"It has been a long road and the lads have won a lot of games to get to where we are. It hasn`t been easy by any means and they deserve all the credit.

"I don`t want to bring things down a peg or two but now we don`t want to get caught. That is the challenge because there is still a long way to go and a lot of points to fight for. We want to make sure nobody overtakes us."
