O'Kane: We can still do it

O'Kane: We can still do it

AFC Bournemouth midfielder Eunan O'Kane believes that if the Cherries can win their remaining four games then they will make the Championship play-offs.

After five consecutive victories, including back to back wins over top six rivals QPR and Reading, the Cherries were disappointed to only come away from Huish Park with a draw.

The point gained against the Championship's bottom club Yeovil was enough to keep within two points of the push for the play-offs.

Reading's draw with Leicester returned them to sixth, but are now level on points with Brighton and Ipswich.

The Cherries go into the Easter weekend, hoping to return to winning form at home to Sheffield Wednesday, before the six pointer at Portman Road against Ipswich.

O'Kane told the Daily Echo...

'...As a group of players we want to do it, the fans want us to do it and so does everyone behind the scenes, but I don`t think there is any strain on us considering the size of the clubs we are up against.

"If you were to ask them about pressure, they would probably feel it a lot more than us so I don`t think the performance (against Yeovil) came down to that...'

'...We can`t control results elsewhere, We just have to concentrate on ourselves, try to win every game and, hopefully, come the end of the season it will be enough.

"We can still do it, it`s not impossible and until it mathematically gets away from us we will keep believing. If we win all four of remaining games then I think we`ll be in there."
