Howe 'bitterly disappointed' for the travelling fans

Eddie Howe said he was bitterly disappointed for the 500 or so Cherries fans who made the trip to the DW Stadium for Wednesday night's 3-0 FA Cup Replay defeat to Wigan.

Goals from Morsy, Burn and Elder condemned AFC Bournemouth to an FA Cup exit at the third round stage to League One opposition for the second year running.

Eddie Howe told the Daily Echo : 'I feel bitterly disappointed for them. It was never our intention, of course, to lose and lose in the manner we did. I feel for them and the money and time they spent, as I always do with the away fans.'

After a poor half when Howe felt the Cherries were wasteful in possession, they wasted good chances after half time.

'I thought we were a lot better in the second half and created a number of chances, at 1-0 and with the number of opportunities we had, we should have found a way back into the game but didn`t and got punished at the end' he said.

"At that stage of the game, we were 1-0 down and I thought we were much better. We had a better look about us and created so many chances that we didn`t take and got caught with two quick goals which was hugely frustrating because I felt we were going to go on and win the game.

Wigan now face a home tie with West Ham on Saturday week, with the Londoners having overcome League One promotion contenders Shrewsbury Town 1-0 in a replay on Tuesday night.
