Bournemouth boss Howe hails Brooks after youngster stars in Fulham win

The Bournemouth manager heaped praise on starlet David Brooks following the Cherries’ 3-0 win over Fulham on Saturday. 

Yet another big win for Eddie Howe’s side keeps them sixth in the Premier League table ahead of the likes of Manchester United and Everton.

Howe was singing the praises of Bournemouth’s promising Welsh attacker David Brooks in particular.

“Really impressive from [Brooks] today,” Howe told BBC following the full-time whistle.

“He has got better as the season has gone on. He fits well into the team. The biggest compliment I can pay him is there hasn’t been a big bedding in period.’’

Howe felt that today’s win showed the strength of his current squad as they were missing their first-choice front man, Josh King.

“It goes to show the strength of our squad. We don’t just have one string to our bow. To win without Josh (King) was big for us.

“We will keep going game by game and see what happens.”

The longer Bournemouth can maintain their current form, the sooner dreams will start about Europa League qualification.

Eddie Howe began his second spell at the Vitality Stadium in 2012 and brought the Cherries up from League One to the top-tier of English football.
