Vital Quotes:

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told the Daily Echo...

"We have a tough run and these games away from home against teams at the bottom are very difficult and we don`t underestimate anybody. We knew how difficult (Charlton) was going to be and we know how difficult Saturday is going to be and we still have a lot to play for ourselves. We need points and so we need a reaction at Barnsley. There are a lot of games to go. We are in a decent position but still need more points."
