New signing, Matt Tubbs, is looking forward to forging a dominant striking partnership with Wes Thomas.

With two ex-Crawley Town strikers spear heading the Cherries push for the play-offs, Matt Tubbs is hoping to re estabish a striking partnership with Wes Thomas.

Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Tubbs is quoted as saying: "Wes is a friend of mine. I got on well with him when we were at Crawley and I am getting on well with him now. All good strike partnerships get on well off and on the pitch. In the past, all my strike partners have been very close to me and very good friends. Wes is a top lad and, hopefully, this partnership can go a long way. Wes is an intelligent player and with players like Wes to play alongside, it makes my job easy because we just bounce off each other. We have not really played together for that long. We had a brief spell together at Crawley and I have only been here for a week or so now. Things are looking good so far so they can only get better".
