Howe: Sticking to our principles

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe believes that sticking to the Cherries passing principles will enable the club to establish themselves in the English second tier.

AFC Bournemouth travel to Reading on Saturday with just one victory in eleven games.

That run of fixtures have seen the Cherries take on eight of the Championship's current top eleven clubs over the past nine games, with fifth placed Reading the next side in this sequence of fixtures.

The slip in results have seen the Cherries slide from 8th to 19th in the Championship table.

But despite the results, the performances have been good, with the Cherries looking a very attractive outfit and have been close to pushing results against many sides that are harbouring ambitions of promotion to the Premier League.

The next step for the Cherries is to improve the quality of their play and to get the rewards in front of goal that the possession often deserves.

Howe told afcb.co.uk...

"If you want us to smash the ball up the pitch, not play through midfield and not play an expansive game, then I believe I will be going completely against what has brought us success, When you have success over four or five years, why would you suddenly rip the book up? That`s madness.

"The key to success is to be stable and stick to your principles, but to also try and become better at what you do. That`s our challenge."
