Wes Thomas lauds Bournemouth positivity

Thomas scored 18 goals in League Two for Cheltenham last season

Bournemouth striker Wes Thomas has praised the atmosphere at the club.

Thomas, 24, is currently unavailable after his loan spell from Crawley came to an end but is set to join the Cherries permanently on 1 January.

"Since I've been here the vibe has always been good," Thomas told BBC Radio Solent.

"Everything's going well and we all have a lot of belief in what we can do this season. Even when we lose, heads don't drop."

The former Cheltenham man has enjoyed a strong start to his Dean Court career, having scored eight goals from his first 16 games - predominantly playing up-front on his own.

But he admits his enforced break from the first-team has come at a frustrating time.

"It'll be nice to have some time off over Christmas but I'd much rather be playing," he continued.

"I'm not a good watcher of games. I hate watching them.

"It's an opportunity for whoever comes in but I'm just trying to keep fit and hopefully have my place when I come back."

Bournemouth fell to their first league defeat since 22 October when they lost 2-0 at home to promotion-chasing Sheffield United on Saturday.
