After a recent improvement in form, manager Kevin Bond praises defender Jason Pearce. Bond is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "He's a really wholehearted player. He's totally committed, he gives you everything and is a really good lad. I think he had a particularly good start to the season and then fell away a touch, which you would expect from somebody of his age who is lacking in experience. He's a confidence player. He needs to feel good about himself and be confident. If things don't quite go his way or he makes a mistake then I think it can affect him. We've seen the best of him when he feels good about himself. He's done well in the past couple of games and I thought he competed well for us against Yeovil".
