Tubbs joins Rotherham on loan

AFC Bournemouth striker Matt Tubbs has joined League One side Rotherham United on loan.

The initial six month loan will see Tubbs re-unite with Steve Evans, who has been chasing the striker for over a year.

Tubbs and Evans previously worked together at Crawley Town, where Tubbs scored 58 goals in 78 appearances.

Since his reported £800,000 move from Crawley to Dean Court however he has been limited to just 7 goals from 42 appearances (14 starts).

Rotherham manager Evans told afcb.co.uk...

"A lot of hard work has gone into getting Matt Tubbs here, I am delighted...'

'...I must also acknowledge the support of AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe and his Chairman Eddie Mitchell for the endorsement they gave our football club. We have also secured the option to take his initial six months with the Millers to a much longer period but that is for another day, he is here and that is what is important.

"Tubbsy will watch the match today against Barnsley after he has met the staff and players. He will be on the training ground on Monday but he has arrived here and is in superb physical condition, we just need to get him sharpened up which in all honesty will not take much doing. This lad is a goal scorer, a finisher in the penalty box and our supporters will also love his work rate for the team, it is staggering."

Banana skin avoided....eventually

Turned up at St Andrews with Eddie's promise to give youngsters a run out echoing in my ears, but was pleasantly surprised with the team we started with. The big Pole was back, with Mings and Smith (B) replacing Ake and Daniels. Gosling and Cook (L) were to be the dynamo of the team, with Wee Man and Puuuuugh feeding Mousset and (yes!!) Defoe. Confidence was pretty high amongst the Bournemouth faithful spread across the open part of the away end. The atmosphere was pretty much non-existent for t
