Bournemouth Preview

Having beaten Port Vale(1-0) and Mansfield(3-0) already most will see this as a easy route to the 4th round, well so do i.
Bournemouth struggled to get past the 1st round as Doncaster, who we beat 8-0, pushed them all the way to the whistle as the Cherries won 2-1. Then in the 2nd Round Southend pushed them to a replay and as Southend were going into the last 10 minutes of the replay 2-1 up they must have though they had it in the bag... noooo, Bournemouth snatched two goals in the final 7 minutes to win 3-2.

So it's Dean Court and with Rob Hulse out, Dean out and Jack out it won't be easy but gives the chance for John Miles and Steve Jones to prove their worth as Dario starts them upfront. Sorvel will probably move in to replace Rix as the Alex hopefully march to a 3-0 victory!
