Howe: I might look to change things around

Howe: I might look to change things around

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe will look to freshen up his squad after a number of games in quick succession.

The Cherries have played four games in fifteen days, taking ten points from a possible twelve without conceding a goal in 365 minutes of football.

Howe has mainly kept an unchanged side with eight players starting all four fixtures, including the defensive back five of Lee Camp, Simon Francis, Tommy Elphick, Steve Cook and Ian Harte.

With Andrew Surman, Matt Ritchie and Lewis Grabban also starting all four games.

With four consecutive clean sheets, the Cherries have set a new club record at this level.

But despite the improved defensive record, Howe was disappointed to not find the breakthrough against Middlesbrough and take all three points and could look to change things around with another four games coming up over the next two weeks.

Howe told afcb.co.uk...

"We tried to entertain. I`m disappointed, we had a good crowd today and that disappoints me that we didn`t give them more goalmouth action but it wasn`t to be, I don`t think it wasn`t for the want of trying from our perspective - it`s unusual for us to get 0-0s.

"I thought we were trying to win the game - it was difficult...'

'...We looked dead on our feet in the last ten minutes, but I think that was only to be expected and I think actually both teams looked pretty tired.

"It`s that stage of the season where I might need to look at changing things around."
