The Cherries' sixth win in their last nine games has given them an advantage over nearest rivals Norwich and Watford with four games remaining, but Howe believes promotion places are still very much up for grabs.

He said: "We've four games left now and we've got to look at taking 12 points; we have to try and win every game. "It wouldn't surprise me if one of the sides at the top wins all their last games. Nothing has been won yet. "I won't accept that we are favourites, I still think it is anyone's. "This league has a habit of throwing up surprises and we must stay strong to the end." Kermorgant now boasts 16 goals this season and Wilson 21, and Howe said he was "really proud" of setting a new club goalscoring record. The Cherries now total 106 goals in all competitions and Howe said: "It will be the goalscorers that will get the headlines, but this win was a team achievement. I'm really proud of our goalscoring record this season and it is a team thing. The lads deserve a lot of credit."

Southampton FC manager Ronald Koeman has admitted that qualifying for the Champions League is improbable

The Saints sit seventh in the Premier League, eight points behind fourth-placed Manchester City.

Speaking about his side's position, he said the difference is too big to make up with only seven games left of the season.

"If Saints reach the Europa League, it's like the rest reaching the Champions League.

" It means more games and buying more experienced players. But, I don't like to speak about these things until we have qualified."

Four Bournemouth-based rowers are all set to quit their jobs to take part in an epic expedition that will see them row the 4,000 kilometres around the UK coastline over three months.

Coming from various backgrounds as teachers, a writer and a beach ranger, the four rowers aim to raise £100,000 for their chosen charities - Wessex Cancer Trust and The Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund.

The challenge will take three months to complete and will be the first ever attempt to row these waters in a converted open water surf boat.

The crew now need help to raise the final £7,000 to fund the expedition.
