Fraser hoping Bournemouth’s 5-0 win over Brighton will boost his sides confidence

Ryan Fraser hopes Bournemouth’s 5-0 win at Brighton will boost the confidence of Eddie Howe’s side.

Having won just once in their past nine league fixtures, Bournemouth ended a torrid run of form with a thumping win at the Amex Stadium.

Dan Gosling opened the scoring for the visitors, before Fraser doubled the lead early in the second half.

David Brooks, Callum Wilson and Junior Stanislas sealed a comprehensive win, and Scotland international Fraser hopes his side can take belief from their performance.

“It feels like we’ve been stuck on 38 points forever. Our away form hasn’t been great and our home recent form hasn’t been so it was great today,” Fraser told Premier League Productions.

“We were lacking a bit of confidence recently but hopefully we can grow from today’s game and now we can try and beat Bournemouth’s highest ever Premier League points tally.

“I wanted to get 10 and 10 – goals and assists – at the start of the season. Now I think I’ve got 12 assists and eight goals so hopefully I can get that target and keep up with the big boys. It’s nice to get the goals and assists but the win too.”
