​Gary O'Nell preparing Bournemouth for Brentford clash

Gary O’Nell has planned training with Bournemouth next week in case he remains in charge.

Speaking after Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Newcastle, O’Neil told the Daily Echo: “Training for the next week is all planned.

“I planned that, just in case it’s me. And then the guys will speak to me, either on the phone or in person, or however we catch up and they’ll let me know what the plan is for the next week.”

Asked whether he was looking forward to a break in fixtures after a hectic spell, the coach said: “I don’t know, I’m enjoying it. So if there was another game, I would be looking forward to it.

“If there isn’t and it’s still me doing the work with the boys, I’m looking forward to working with the boys on the grass for two weeks, to try and improve things that need improving. Give people a bit of a rest if they need a rest, work some of the others that need to work.

“My focus now, in case it’s me, is let’s get the boys in the best place we can for Brentford.”
