Cherries urged to move on up

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe hopes to see his side start climbing the Premier League table after a 1-0 win at Newcastle lifted them out of the bottom three.

Steve Cook struck deep into stoppage time at St James' Park to secure a second successive away league victory, with the three-point return enough to lift the Cherries out of the drop zone, with Howe now keen to move upwards and onwards.

It's never nice being in the bottom three and we needed to lift ourselves out of it, hopefully we can stay out of it now.

He told Sky Sports: "Back-to-back away wins is huge, our away record prior to this wasn't great. You need to know you can win anywhere, it's a huge win for us and hopefully that will lift our season.

"It's ideal, it sets us up nicely for the games to come. They're tough games, but games we will relish.

"It's never nice being in the bottom three and we needed to lift ourselves out of it, hopefully we can stay out of it now."

Following the international break, Bournemouth play of their next four league games at home, starting against Huddersfield Town on Saturday 18th November.

A trip to fellow strugglers Swansea City is the next assignment, before the Cherries welcome Burnley and Southampton to Dean Court.

Bournemouth are now 11/2 to be relegated this season, with Swansea priced at 4/9 and West Brom available at 2/1.

Last season Howe's men finished in the top half of the Premier League table, some 12 points clear of the bottom three, with their first season in the top-flight in 2015/16 having seen them end in 16th, five points clear of danger.
