Camp: Clean sheets instil confidence and belief

AFC Bournemouth 'keeper Lee Camp believes the Cherries improved defensive record has given the side more belief.

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.

With four consecutive clean sheets against Doncaster Rovers, Blackpool, Blackburn Rovers and Middlesbrough, the Cherries have set a new club record at this level.

It has been a stark turnaround from the sides previous defensive record, which saw just one clean sheet in 24 Championship fixtures.

Camp told the Daily Echo...

'...Keeping clean sheets does instil confidence and belief. It's the same as when strikers score goals, when you stop teams from scoring you feel red-hot, on top of the world and like you're unbeatable.

"Possession has also been a key factor. We've dominated the ball in most of our games recently, limiting teams to counter attacks and shots from distance.

"We have not done anything too radical, it has just been a case of fine tuning one or two things which has paid off recently and long may that continue."
