AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe wants his side to be as well prepared for life in the Championship as possible.
The Cherries will be in the second tier of English football for only the second time in the clubs history next season after winning automatic promotion from League One.
AFC Bournemouth will be playing numerous sides who have competed in the Premier League in recent seasons, all of whom benefit from massive parachute payments.
All of the clubs with exception of Yeovil Town who won promotion via the play-offs at Wembley over the weekend boast larger attendances, with larger squads, packed with experience.
The Cherries simply cannot compete at the same level in regards to finances, so Howe hopes to find and edge via detailed planning rather than resources.
Howe told the Daily Echo...
"We are going to be playing clubs with bigger squads, bigger resources and bigger stadiums so we are really going to have to be smart.
"We are going to have to try to compete in different ways and be different with our playing style. We are going to need an edge and that is where we need to try to get it because it is going to be difficult trying to go toe-to-toe financially with these clubs...'
'...We have to look to get our edge in terms of team spirit, preparation, training, sports science and the medical department - all areas where money is not the governing factor and it is more about how you operate. It is going to be up to me, Jason and all our staff to make sure we are as well prepared and organised as we can be and that is what we will be looking to do over the next few weeks."
Don't forget to keep checking the RednBlack Shack for great online deals and help to raise money for the AFC Bournemouth Youth Team.
