The Cherries have had a mixed start to life in the Championship. They have won their two home games but have shipped 11 goals in clashes at Watford and Huddersfield, who beat them 5-1 at the weekend.

Six points from four matches represents a decent return for a newly-promoted side. However, Bournemouth's early away form is a cause for concern and something Howe is determined to put right.

"I'm certainly frustrated but we will respond as we always do," Howe told the club's official website.

"We've won two out of four. We have conceded a lot of goals in the two away games, which highlights an issue and a problem but it's something we will have to address.

"It's a learning curve for us and we know we have to get better and that we have to improve in all areas."

Howe's men are in action away from Dean Court twice this week. They have a chance to make amends at Watford in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday before a trip to Doncaster on Saturday.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
