‘It’s a big game for the supporters’


AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is looking forward to another “terrific” atmosphere in only the third ever Premier League derby against Southampton. 

“The atmosphere in last year’s games were terrific,” he told afcb.co.uk. “The scenes were really enjoyable after the home win and the away game was not such a nice feeling. It’s a big game for the supporters, it’s an important game for them.

“I think the more games we play, the rivalry will develop. It’s a new thing and you need time to form those connections.”
