Howe warns against complacency

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is targeting maximum points against Swansea as the club close in on Premier League survival.

The Cherries have picked up 35 points from their 29 Premier League games to date and victory against Swansea would see them move ever closer to the 40-point mark, which is likely to be enough to keep them up.

Howe is reluctant to look too far ahead and has urged his players to focus on Saturday's game against Swansea.

"No one can predict what the final points tally will be," he explained. "Saturday won't guarantee anything but it can help, as all games can, if we can take maximum points.

"There's still a number of games to go, so we need to make sure we are prepared and focussed on this game.

"We had a good week last week. Before we'd spoken about improving our home form, now we want to continue with that."

Swansea head coach Francesco Guidolin will miss the game as he continues his recovery from a chest infection but Howe does not expect his absence to affect the Swans.

"Sometimes things happen that are beyond football," continued the Cherries boss.

"The health of any individual is always more important than the game, so we certainly all wish Francesco well and hope he has a speedy and full recovery.

"Regardless of that, they have managed to do really well under Alan Curtis. It hasn't affected their game and that's full credit to their players."
