Howe: McDermott has outstanding attributes

Howe: McDermott has outstanding attributes

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has praised Cherries attacking midfielder Donal McDermott.

McDermott was left in the wilderness by former manager Paul Groves with his final appearances coming at Swindon Town in the Cherries 4-0 defeat. McDermott was substituted at half time in that game and didn't feature again until Eddie Howe was re-appointed as manager last month.

He featured in the Cherries Hampshire Senior Cup victory over Winchester City, scoring two first half goals and was rewarded with a late substitute appearance against Tranmere in Howe's first game back in the dugout.

McDermott made his first start just three days later away to Notts County, but has since only made two substitute appearances and was an unused substitute against Stevenage on Tuesday night.

Howe told afcb.co.uk...

"Donal has outstanding attributes and technically he is very good, You can tell that he was well educated in his time at Manchester City.

"Since Jason and myself came in, it has been a case of trying to get the best out of every player, and hopefully we can do that with Donal.

"He is the sort of player that every manager wants in his squad because of the attacking qualities he has got. It is the hardest part of the game to unlock defences, to create and score goals, and any player who is capable of doing that fits our criteria."
