A lot at stake says boss in wide open race for Play-Offs
Just five points separate Brighton in sixth from 12th placed Watford, who have a game in hand, with Blues currently in eighth and a point outside the top six after the defeat by the Hornets at the weekend.
“Don’t ask me how it’s going to pan out because I haven’t got a clue,” said the Town boss.
“It’s a massive game for us against Bournemouth, I do know that – especially after our result against Watford.
“All we can do is that care of our own business and see where that leaves us.
“Bournemouth have had a terrific season and over the last month or so they have come up on the rails with a great run of form.
“They showed what a good team they are when we played them down at their place at the end of December. We had to really dig in over the last 15 minutes or so to make sure we got a point and it was a good point as well.
“There is a lot at stake on Monday. We know that but it all adds to the excitement. That’s what we are in football for.”
