Some more detail out of Steve Bruce…
Look, he has done a remarkable job, Eddie. This year they have been blighted with large traumas and if that occurs to you, you believe everything is against you since you overlook four of your large players for a long, long time and it will become hard, and they’ve experienced a challenging period.
But make no mistake, they will be battling for their own lives, therefore we understand what to anticipate. But we have had a good run of form at the league of late, so let us hope that last
Bruce on Bournemouth
The average during the previous five seasons continues to be some thing similar to 42 points, exactly what the club has attained, therefore we’ve given ourselves a superb chance to become better than what we have averaged over the past five decades.
That has to be the’m for them. We have to attempt and finish as strongly as possible. It’s likely to be difficult since we’ve gotten the teams at the bottom and, needless to say, the best teams to perform too, so there is a fantastic equilibrium in there.

Touch and proceed. You understand what Matt’s such as, he will be desperate to playwith, but he was nowhere close on Friday, so we will see how he’s because again, a soft tissue injury, you can not actually have a risk because when he is not correct, he then could risk being outside for the remainder of the season.
But for obvious reasons, he will be desperate to playwith.
