I Pick A Team To Win - Howe

Speaking to the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Eddie Howe is quoted as saying: "Jeff and Alan have both had a few niggles and I don't think either of them is ready to start just yet. Everybody knows Fletch will struggle to play 90 minutes week in, week out, especially when we've got two games a week. Out of the four strikers we've got, you would have to say we've only got one who is fully fit and that is Brett. I've told all the lads that we need players who are 100 per cent fit. In our position, we can't carry anyone. We need players who can cover every blade of grass and who are on top of their game. Mark Molesley had a dead leg and we had to leave him out against Luton because we had Danny Hollands to come in and he was 100 per cent fit. My philosophy is that you play if you're 100 per cent fit and, at the moment, we're struggling to get two centre-forwards who are both fit enough to start".
