From the opposition

Bournemouth manager Jason Tindall expects a tough test against Chris Hughton's Nottingham Forest side.


He said: "Every game we set the demand upon ourselves that we want to win every game we play. We have played a lot of the teams in and around us in the top half of the table so far this season and got good results.

Stats pack: Bournemouth vs Forest

24 November 2020

"It is about going out every game and delivering the level of performance that we did against Birmingham and the second half performance against Reading and being consistent with that.

"It is another tough game and since Chris has come in, they have done well. They have lost two in eight, one of those at the weekend, and in other games I don't think they have conceded more than one goal.

"It shows that it is going to be a difficult team to break down and all Chris Hughton's teams are tough to play against. He has had success wherever he has been and we have to make sure we are prepared to go out there and deliver a good performance."


Tonight's game will be shown live on Sky Sports and season card holders who selected option 1 will also have access to the full 90 minutes via iFollow Forest.

Other supporters are unable to purchase a match pass to watch the match on iFollow Forest, but audio passes are still available with commentary provided by BBC Radio Nottingham.
