‘When it is a difficult topic it is good to take the seriousness out of it.

‘It is never easy but Max has the personality to handle it.’

Bournemouth and Norwich meet again in the second-tier just two months after suffering relegation from the Premier League.

Both sides are in the top-six after taking four points from two games, and Cherries boss Jason Tindall was delighted to see £17million striker Dominic Solanke score his first goal of the season in last weekend’s 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough.

‘Ever since he signed for this football club Dom’s attitude has been first-class,’ Tindall said. ‘He’s a huge player for this football club.’

High-flying Bristol City seek to extend their 100 per cent league record against bottom-placed Sheffield Wednesday at Ashton Gate.

Robins boss Dean Holden said: ‘They’re a team who have started the season with an attitude of nothing to lose with their points deduction.’

Wednesday were deducted 12 points for breaching Profit and Sustainability rules and have yet to concede this season in picking up four points.
