Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake: Our simple season target

Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake says this season's goal for the team is a simple one.

Bournemouth currently sit in ninth position, one place below next weekend's opponents Wolves and just a single point adrift of fifth.

Ake told the Daily Express: “The first thing we normally say 'let's have a good start', like we did last season. It's not necessarily just [about trying] to stay up.

“But this time around the main aim is just to be more consistent. Over the last few years we've been very inconsistent, winning a few games then losing a few. It's very up, down, up, down.

“I think this season, we are hoping to be far more consistent so we are working hard for that. That's one of the main things we needed to improve and at the moment it's going okay but we need to be more consistent."
