Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has "gone back to basics" in a bid to end his side's losing start in the Premier League against Albion tomorrow night.

The Cherries are next-to-bottom after four straight defeats ahead of the clash at the Vitality Stadium (8pm), but Howe is not panicking in the face of a rare mini-crisis.

He said: "We've gone back to basics and worked on getting the fundamentals of our game back.

"There's been plenty of other moments that have been equally difficult. It's never been a straight line of success.

"I'd never question the attitude of my players. I'd question the performances, but never the attitude.

"We've come back before and we'll do it again. We haven't changed how we work, just made it better.

"I think one result can turn things around very quickly."

Howe sees similarities between his club and Albion's rise under Chris Hughton.

"There are definitely parallels with the two clubs," he said. "When you see the job that Chris has done, it's very impressive.

"From watching Brighton play, they've got a good team, a good balance and they're going to be tough to beat."
