Howe urges Bournemouth to end season on a high after slump

(Ah Fat Talk Ball) - Bournemouth must strive to get positive results in their two remaining Premier League matches after their recent slump ended hopes of surpassing last season's record points tally, manager Eddie Howe said ahead of Saturday's match against Swansea City.

Bournemouth are on a three-game losing streak and have won just one of their last 10 matches to drop to 12th in the league on 38 points, leaving them eight points adrift of last season's club record 46-point haul.

Howe believes that Bournemouth's slump has mirrored that of his players' mental decline and urged his team to regain their momentum to reach the 40-point mark this season.

Bournemouth are relatively safe as they sit six points ahead of 18th-placed Southampton and five ahead of Saturday's visitors Swansea, both of whom have played a game fewer.

A win for Swansea will seal West Bromwich Albion's relegation to the second-tier Championship but could also drag Bournemouth into the relegation scrap.
