Bournemouth's new loan signing Kenwyne Jones will be aiming to add to his debut strike as he faces Brighton, a team which he has already got the better of this term
Dominant Championship leaders Bournemouth will travel to the Falmer Stadium aiming to extend their lead at the summit, with their opponents Brighton faltering closer towards the relegation places this term.
The Cherries will hope their astute strikeforce can continue to perform at a high level and fire them towards domestic glory, securing an automatic promotion to the Premier League for next season in the process.
Trinidad and Tobago targetman Kenwyne Jones was snapped up from Cardiff City by Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe in the late stages of the Football League’s recent emergency loan transfer window.
The former Sunderland and Stoke City frontman is a best priced 5/1 with Bet365 to strike the last goal of the game in his latest outing. Towering Championship centre forward Jones has already netted the last strike in a domestic league clash with Brighton earlier in the campaign, as he helped Cardiff secure a 1-1 draw last year.
The former top-flight finisher also struck last on his loan debut for the Championship’s top placed outfit, grabbing a dramatic late equaliser to earn a point against play-off hopefuls Ipswich Town. Young English manager Howe will hope his latest loan recruit can continue that rampant run and send the Cherries on their way towards a clinical Championship triumph.
Howe’s visitors will be confident after their recent form but will also be boosted by the fact Brighton are without a victory in their previous five league encounters, drawing three and losing on two occasions.
Along with in-form forward Jones, Bournemouth boast a host of other astute attackers capable of earning vital points on their travels.
Recent Republic of Ireland call-up Harry Arter has been in sublime form this current campaign, after striking an incredible eight times from midfield, proving his goalscoring credentials. The midfield maestro has netted two goals in his last four league appearances and is available at 23/4 with 888sport to score again anytime away from home in his latest outing.
Although, Bournemouth’s key threat will undoubtedly be top scorer Callum Wilson, with the superb striker having recently reached the 20-goal mark for the campaign. The Cherries sharpshooter is a 9/2 chance with Paddy Power to open proceedings at the Falmer Stadium, after firing home during his side’s 4-2 win over Birmingham City last time out.
