'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Arter: Howe expects high standards

AFC Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter believes that the Cherries can live up to the high expectations placed on the squad.

The Cherries returned to the second tier of English football for the first time in twenty three years last season.

AFC Bournemouth under manager Eddie Howe flourished in the Championship, set numerous club records and broke the highest ever finish for the club in the second tier with a 10th place finish.

With the additions of midfielder Dan Gosling, winger Junior Stanislas and striker Callum Wilson, the target this season is to improve on last term with one eye on the Championship play-offs and chase for promotion to the Premier League.

Arter told the Daily Echo...

'...Going into this season, everybody is thinking about the play-offs. We have a team that wants to succeed and get to the highest level so play-offs and promotions are part of the expectation we have for ourselves...'

'...It`s important to remember, though, that we have only been in the division one year. Some big clubs have come in with financial clout so we need to be realistic because the club is still growing compared with others.

"This season we need everyone behind us again and I`m sure we can be successful. We have a manager who expects high standards and I think the crowd realise that everyone is giving their all.

"We`re aiming to go as far as we can but we will need them to stick with us if we`re not having a good time."
