Steve Fletcher insists AFC Bournemouth can still win promotion to Championship 'dream land'
AFC Bournemouth legend Steve Fletcher is urging his Cherries teammates not to panic after three straight defeats sent his side out of the League One playoff places.
Despite dropping to seventh place, the Cherries are only two points behind league leaders Doncaster Rovers.
"Despite the defeats, we are in a position we haven't been in in many, many years" said Fletcher.
"We have a chance of achieving something this season in League One to get into what will be our dream land - the Championship.

"I have been here for 20 years and this is probably the best I have seen the club, and probably the best team and talent I have played with.
"We are on the verge of potentially creating history - and I believe if we play like we did for periods against Coventry, we will."
The Cherries lost 2-0 against the Sky Blues on Tuesday, despite dominating for large periods.
Bournemouth go into Saturday's game against Leyton Orient level on points with both Yeovil Town and Brentford.
Like Bournemouth, Orient have failed to win their last three league games and are currently twelfth in League One.
"It's the one thing off my CV - I've never played in the Championship, so for me personally I can't pray to the gods enough and I will do all I can to help" added Fletcher.
"The fans play a huge part too, they are unbelievable, and the bubble may have burst a bit in respect of results but we are still among it."
