AFC Bournemouth defender Tommy Elphick was pleased that the Cherries continued their unbeaten run away at Bury on Saturday.

The Cherries came from behind twice against Bury to share the points and could have taken all three if Miles Addison’s attempts on goal had not been cleared off the line or Marc Pugh’s effort hadn’t have rattled the crossbar.

But the point extended the Cherries unbeaten run to ten games in all competitions and lifted the Cherries up to tenth in the League One table, up from twenty first on the day that Eddie Howe was announced as the clubs new manager.

AFC Bournemouth are now five points off the play-off places, seven points automatic promotion and ten points behind leaders Tranmere Rovers.

Elphick told afcb.co.uk

“Even though the gap between us and sixth has become bigger, we`ve gone up a place and closed the gap on second place. It shows we are in there and that we are within touching distance,”.

“The message in the dressing room after the game was that we can`t lose sight of where we want to get to.

“We have got ourselves into a good position and with the form we are in we can`t fear anyone.”
