AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe was delighted to extend the Cherries recent away record with victory over Rotherham United.

Goals from Tommy Elphick and Callum Wilson secured the three points to keep the Cherries top of the Championship table.

The result extended the Cherries unbeaten run away from Dean Court to eight matches and also set a new club record of the most away victories in a second tier season.

The 32 goals scored is also a new club record, beating the previous record of 27 goals scored last season and under Harry Redknapp in 1989/90.

Victory over Leeds United on Tuesday would push the Cherries to 30 points earned away from home, setting another club record beating last seasons tally of 28 points.

Howe told BBC Radio Solent

“The number of wins we have had on the road this season is very good, We have been very strong, posed a threat as we know we can do and we have defended well at times.

“Looking back at the Norwich game, I think this is a big win for us.

“We were under no illusion that this was going to be a big game in our season.

“Hopefully it sets us up for Leeds, which will be another tough assignment in a hostile atmosphere. We will look forward to that game.”
