AFC Bournemouth midfielder Wes Fogden believes the great unity within the squad will help the side battle in both the league and FA Cup.

Fogden made his first start since Eddie Howe’s return as manager in October and was one of the scorers in the Cherries 3-1 win over Carlisle to book themselves into the third round of the FA Cup.

Howe opted to make five changes for the FA Cup tie at the weekend, with Shwan Jalal coming in for David James in goal, Steve Cook replacing Miles Addison in defence, Eunan O’Kane and Wes Fogden replacing Josh McQuoid and Harry Arter, with Brett Pitman replacing Matt Tubbs.

The changes didn’t weaken the side and Fogden believes that the whole squad are battling hard to push the team forward.

Fogden told the Daily Echo

‘…It was my first start under the new manager. I am working hard and, hopefully, when I get the chance, I can give 100 per cent. Hopefully, with the squad we have got, we can go on a good run and get as far as we can in this competition…’

‘…The club is looking to get promoted and get as high as it can. We are just taking one day at a time. The lads have been great. Everyone works hard and we have got great unity within the squad.

“As long as you give 100 per cent and do whatever you can then there can be no arguments. I am always going to give 100 per cent and, if it is good enough, it is good enough. If it is not then it is not but I am going to be as honest as I can. We have got a great squad and are moving up as a team.”
