Cook: Middlesbrough game is a six-pointer

Cook: Middlesbrough game is a six-pointer

AFC Bournemouth defender Steve Cook and midfielder Harry Arter believe the home fixture against Middlesbrough is a crucial game in the Cherries season.

The Cherries next two games come against the two bottom sides in the Premier League, with 19th place Middlesbrough visiting Dean Court on Saturday and a trip to Sunderland the following week.

AFC Bournemouth head into those games following back to back defeats to the Premier League's best two sides in the form of Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.

Prior to that AFC Bournemouth had been undefeated in five games, beating West Ham United and Swansea City and drawing with Manchester United, Southampton and Liverpool.

The Cherries remain seven points clear of the relegation zone.

Arter told afcb.co.uk...

"We can`t really dwell on it (the Tottenham defeat) too much but need to keep that confidence we`d built in the last five games before Tottenham and Chelsea and use it for Saturday."

Cook told the Daily Echo...

'...we have five cup finals to play. Our destiny is in our own hands. The Middlesbrough game is a six-pointer and one we have to win.'

Your Say...

Mathematically safe,when?

It will depend on the bottom four teams, they are doing us a big favour by not making up ground on us.
The biggest factor imho isn't how well we do but how bad they do!
