From a disasterous start away from home against Watford and Huddersfield Town, where the Cherries shipped 11 goals, performances and scorelines away from home have been much improved in recent weeks, against some notable opposition.
Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as the Cherries continue to adapt, manager Eddie Howe is quoted as saying: "I think we have seen a gradual improvement in the team throughout the season, not just in results, but in level of performance. When you looked at our early games, we had some good results by being a little backs-to-the-wall at times. We have been more progressive and attack-minded in the latter stages of the first half of the season and had some consistent performances, which is the pleasing thing. I think we have been very good in the past six or seven games and been the dominant team in most. They are good signs and if we could continue that progression and improvement, then we could be a real force to be reckoned with".
