AFC Bournemouth will be looking to pick up another win this afternoon, as they prepare to take on Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.
The Cherries have seemingly responded well to Jason Tindall’s departure, with interim boss Jonathan Woodgate yielding two wins in the past week.
Last weekend, they defeated Birmingham City by three goals to two at the Vitality Stadium, before booking their place in the quarter finals of the FA Cup after a win at Premier League Burnley.
Woodgate has opted to name four changes to the side that beat Burnley in the cup in midweek, ahead of kick-off at the City Ground this lunchtime.
There’s a first league start for Ben Pearson, who arrived at the club from Preston North End last month.
Shane Long also comes into the side, with the likes of Dominic Solanke and Jack Stacey missing out through injury.
Here, we take a look at Bournemouth fans’ reactions to the line-up…
Loving the formation (again). Very surprised not to see Lewis in the starting XI but that’s some midfield…
Come on Boscombe #afcb

WTF has Surridge got to do to get a start?! Still no chance of putting two strikers up top and pressing the defence. Just let two wide forwards drop deep and play five midfield. Supposed to be premier league quality and have a formation like away to Man City again. FFS!
