It seems that The Cherries are suffering a crisis of confidence, as they suffered their third defeat in a row, at the weekend.
A visit to Carlisle did nothing to improve their automatic promotion chances as they lost by a single goal.
Lying 5th in the league, three points behind south coast rivals Southampton; Peterborough and Huddersfield also stand between them and the chance to play in the Championship next season. As it stands, they are in the play-off zone; so, whilst the possibility is still open to them, each loss is going to make it more difficult. They need to find that self-belief and drive home every goal they can.
Next weekend, they host Charlton,, followed by a trip to Peterborough - which might turn out to be a make or break game.
