AFC Bournemouth loanee Lee Barnard is hopeful he will be back amongst the goals soon.

The striker on loan from Southampton until January returned to the starting line up on Tuesday night after not being allowed to play in the FA Cup by his parent club.

He replaced striker Matt Tubbs who returned to the bench and continued to work hard up front supporting the likes of Lewis Grabban, Josh McQuoid and Marc Pugh around him. Hitting the post in the build up to the Cherries second goal of the game against Shrewsbury.

Barnard himself has scored one goal since Eddie Howe’s return to the club as manager, but with the squad scoring 16 goals in those 5 games, Barnard is just happy that the side are continuing their winning run.

Barnard told afcb.co.uk

“The ball is just not going in the net for me at the minute, but the main thing is that the team are winning, It is disappointing personally not to score, but I will keep working hard. Hopefully one will come soon and then I will go on to get lots of goals.”

“As long as my hold up play is good and I`m bringing others into the game, then I`m happy, and also because we are winning…’

‘…All we can do is take one game at a time, keep doing what we are doing and hopefully get a good result up there (at Doncaster).
