Bournemouth Preview – Cherries to extend unbeaten run?

Bournemouth currently occupy the final play-off spot in the Championship. The Cherries have had a mixed bag of results this season, picking up 12 wins, suffering seven defeats and drawing ten times.

The Bournemouth board sacked Jason Tindall after a 2-1 home loss to Sheffield Wednesday at the start of the month, which was the club’s fourth Championship reverse on the spin. However, under interim boss Jonathan Woodgate, Bournemouth have beaten Birmingham City and drawn with Nottingham Forest. They also beat Premier League Burnley away from home in the Emirates FA Cup.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score
