Howe Wants Cup Run

Last updated : 07 November 2009 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
The Cherries visit Saltergate to face Chesterfield in the first round of the FA Cup as they bid for a place in the second round of the competition.

Manager Eddie Howe is hoping for a run in the Cup which would also provide a valuable cash boost for the Cherries, being quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "We’ve had some tricky ties down the years and managed to get through them. You can come unstuck when you play non-league teams but this is a different kettle of fish. We are playing a very good side from our own league on their own patch so it is going to be tough and we are going to have to perform to progress. But progression is what we want and we are taking the cup very seriously. There will be no resting players or talk of concentrating on the league. This is a massive game for this football club. We will be doing everything we can to try to win. Their home record is the best in the division but this is a different kind of pressure for both teams because it is a one-off game".
