League One Guide - Bournemouth
The loss of leading goal-scorer Jamie Hayter will be a big loss to the Dorset based club. In recent years he has been main source of goals for them, he has left to join Doncaster in a £200,000 deal.
Former Brentford target man Jo Kuffour has been brought in as a replacement for Hayter; he has the unenviable task of trying to follow in his footsteps.
Kuffour notched 14 goals last season in a relegated team and the club will be looking for him to hit the back of the net on a regular basis.
Russell Perrett has also joined the club from Luton. The 6ft 1 defender will be add much needed height and experience to the Bournemouth back line.
They will be looking for former England player Darren Anderton to supply the crosses for him to finish. If Kuffour struggles to adapt to life on the south coast there is a distinct possibility that they could get embroiled in a relegation scrap.
