Eyeing Automatic?!

Last updated : 28 January 2011 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator

Following the 1-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend, is automatic promotion now a realistic possibility for AFC Bournemouth?

Marc Pugh thinks automatic promotion is realistic, being quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "I wouldn’t have signed for Bournemouth if I didn’t believe we could be successful. I’ve always believed that we could finish in at least the play-offs. Now, we’ve got to believe we can finish in the top two. We’ve been on a good run. We had a bit of a blip against Colchester, where we didn’t play well at all, but we’ve picked up some great results. Bradders and Fletch have come in and been absolutely brilliant in the past two games. I have a lot of respect for them both and long may it continue. They work so hard behind the scenes and deserve every success".
