AFC Bournemouth fans have cast doubt on their team’s chances of victory this weekend when they take on Wolves in a crucial clash.
The Cherries are currently languising in the Premier League relegation zone after eight games as they prepare to welcome ex-manager Gary O’Neil back to the Vitality Stadium.
Wolves come to the Vitality on the back of two draws and a win against defending champions Manchester City, while Bournemouth are on a three-match losing streak in the league.
Fans have said they are “not overly confident” ahead of the game and have suggested it could be make or break for Cherries manager Andoni Iraola.
“Wolves have had some good results lately, so I’m not really confident about us taking three points,” one fan said.
“I want Iraola to be successful and I would say that he should get at least ten games, but tomorrow is a big, big game.”
The Cherries have the scored the fewest goals of any team so far this season with five, and fans are concerned that the lack of threat up front could be costly.
Bournemouth fan Nick Whitbread said the team need to be more clinical in front of goal.
“We need a striker because we’re just not scoring enough of our chances,” he said.
“We’re definitely overloaded with wingers, that’s for sure.
“Solanke has scored three goals out of 21 chances in the league, he needs to be a little more efficient in my opinion if he wants to stay as a permanent striker.”
Bournemouth go into the game knowing they’ll be without injured Tyler Adams (thigh), Ryan Fredericks (calf) and Emiliano Marcondes (ankle), while Iraola revealed in his press conference earlier today that Lloyd Kelly, Chris Mepham and Alex Scott are back in training with the squad.
Wolves’ only injury concern is Hugo Bueno, who is a major doubt with a hamstring injury, while Nelson Semedo and Mario Lemina are both suspended for Saturday’s game.
