Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell is confident the club can avoid a winding-up order issued by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs.

The order relates to an unpaid tax bill of £314,000 and Mitchell confirmed at a fans forum on Thursday night that £100,000 of that will be paid shortly. He has also assured supporters the remaining debt will be cleared without a hitch.

"When we took on the club six months ago we owed in excess of £600,000 and we've now got that down to £300,000," he told Sky Sports News.

"That has been raised purely by initiatives by the club. The club is going completely the right way.

"We are confident by the time the order is issued we will have found the money to clear it."

The Coca-Cola League Two club, who have been under a transfer embargo for the entire season, are making a mockery of their off-field problems this season and are flying high in the automatic promotion places.
