Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter says his side need to focus on their performances and not the situation of being two wins away from the Premier League.
The Cherries take on Bolton Wanderers on Monday evening, having been forced to watch on as all of their Championship promotion rivals go into action on Saturday.
We are two games away from being in the Premier League.
But Arter is content that the men from the South Coast will not be distracted when they take to the field on Monday, even if he accepts that Eddie Howe’s men have not been at their best in recent weeks.
He told the Independent: “We are two games away from being in the Premier League. The destiny is in our hands. It is all down to us.
“Performance-wise, we haven’t been as fluent and as good as we have been earlier in the season.
“It may be that at this part of the season there is such a big emphasis on winning the game that it probably takes over from just performing well. We need to focus on just performing.”
Bournemouth are unbeaten in their last 11 games in the Championship, but dropped two potentially crucial points in a 2-2 draw at home to Sheffield Wednesday last time out.
The Cherries are 1.30 to take all three points against the Trotters on Monday evening, with the draw 6.00, while a Bolton victory is available at 11.00.
