Bournemouth striker Solanke hails Parker influence for victory over Coventry

Bournemouth striker Dominic Solanke has hailed manager Scott Parker for his tactical changes in the win over Coventry on Monday.

Solanke, usually a centre-forward, started in a deeper role before being pushed further up the ground as Bournemouth won 3-0.

The Cherries are four points clear in the automatic promotion positions with five games remaining.

Asked by the Daily Echo what he thought about the role change, Solanke said: "Every game is different, we need to play teams with a different tactic.

"That's what the gaffer wanted to do today, me playing a little bit deeper, I think it worked, especially getting the first two goals, being clinical with that really helped us.

"I don't really mind, me up there myself or someone is up there like Jamal was today, I don't really mind. I'm adaptive to that."
