BOURNEMOUTH host Newcastle United for a Premier League clash tonight as they look to boost their chances of avoiding relegation.
The Cherries form has been worrying to say the least, with no wins in their last six top-flight games which leaves them in the drop zone.
Newcastle are safely in mid-table after an excellent run of form and are hoping of a top-half finish with their takeover still potentially going through.
The restart has proven successful for the Toon, who have enjoyed a win and a draw since the Premier League returned.
