Bournemouth

Winger tipped by Howe

13th January 2018, 15:01 by Nick Harris

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has backed Jordan Ibe to go on a goalscoring run in the second half of the season.

The winger has yet to find the back of the net for the club following his move from Liverpool 18 months ago, but came close against Brighton on New Year's Day when he hit the post.

Howe says the 22-year-old has been a major factor in the team's recent scoring run.

Howe told the Daily Echo: "We lacked a goal threat at times in the early stages of the season. We played some nice football, but lacked a cutting edge.

"In the past three games we've looked a totally different outfit in that respect and Jordon has played his part in that, as have the other players.

"That's going to be really important for us because you need your team to believe they can score at any stage of the game. I think we're getting that feeling back."
