Arter: I want to repay Howe

AFC Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter wants to repay manager Eddie Howe for the faith he has had in him.

Arter was signed by Eddie Howe during his first stint in charge of the Cherries in June 2010, giving him a chance to return to the Football League after dropping down into the non-league ranks with Woking.

He has always shown potential, but this season appears to be a breakthrough year for the midfielder.

Last season his performances and his disciplinary record had not quite lived up to expectation under former managers Lee Bradbury and Paul Groves.

But this season, especially since the return of Eddie Howe from Burnley, Arter's performances have been excellent and on Tuesday night he won the man of the match award.

Arter told the Daily Echo...

"...I know I have probably had criticism from some fans and some people but that has only ever made me want to prove them wrong rather than setting me back.

"The gaffer has given me a lot of confidence. He was the one who brought me to the club and when he came (back) in, he put me straight back in the team. I just want to repay him for that.

"It is much appreciated that the fans are saying that I am doing well and I am getting good comments from people. I am not going to get ahead of myself or anything like that, I just want to try to make it continue..."
