AFC Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter believes that despite the penalty shoot-out defeat to Portsmouth, the Cherries are beginning to show their potential.
The Cherries are yet to record a victory this season, with three draws and one defeat during the opening four games of the League One campaign.
AFC Bournemouth have also been knocked out of both the League Cup and the Football League Trophy after penalty shoot-out defeats to both Oxford United and Portsmouth.
The 2-2 draw on Tuesday night in front of the Sky Sports cameras however was not a fair reflection of the game, with the Cherries dominating spells of possession and carving out many more chances than the home side, including Wes Fogden hitting the post.
In total the Cherries created 19 shots on goal throughout the game in comparison to Portsmouth's 9, but only put 6 on target.
Arter told afcb.co.uk...
"We should have won. It`s as simple as that. You don`t need to look at the statistics, anyone who saw the game knows we had more chances and dominated the game. In the end, it was just a lottery with the penalties and when it gets to that stage, it doesn`t matter about the performance before that,'
"In truth, we know we should have comfortably wrapped it up in the 90 minutes but there are a lot of positive to be taken from the performance. We played well but we just need that first win..."
'...Yeovil are on a good run but they would have seen our game and saw what a threat we will be to them, They know we are not an easy touch. I don`t want to be disrespectful to Portsmouth but we were by far the better team. They would have been in the changing room counting themselves lucky...'
