“When I became manager here we wanted to connect with the fans. We wanted an on-pitch connection. I think they’re seeing everyone from myself, the staff and the players giving their lot. We’ve made some mistakes along the way, but I don’t think it’s a lack of effort. I think the commitment to the cause is evident and the fans are playing their part. That’s the connection we want, and we’ll need that connection at home this week. But it’s within us to take care of ourselves and that’s what we’re going to do,” says the boss Sean Dyche. [EFC]

Definitely us, maybe not Everton, so the fact that it isn’t for us shows what a good achievement it was from the players. One thing to stay up, another thing to stay up with four games to spare. So very impressive, from a group without quite a lot of people, and you saw again, they’ll run, they’ll work, that they do whatever’s asked of them...important that we get them ready to go again, make sure that we’re very competitive at Everton, and try and put one more win on the table for the season,” says Bournemouth manager Gary O’Neil.
