Arter knew it was going to be a battle

Honesty is really apart of Harry's make up. In the Millwall match he was one of the first to admit that in the first half AFCB weren't really good enough. But the second half was totally different when they played with a great tempo and quality to take all the three points.

Talking about the first half Harry said: "I wasn't pleased with it at all. From a personal point of view I had to keep telling myself to get on the ball and don't hide from it. And as a team as well they brought me through it as well."

He also admitted that there was a lot of frustration let out in his celebration. I just hope that Harry is not too hard on himself. Yes, he made a mistake for one of the goals but he picked himself up and got on with the job. To go two-nil down and to come back is clearly the most pleasing aspect of last weekend's game. One of the players said the other week that a two-nil scoreline is a dangerous one. It was pointed out to us at Middlesbrough. If you score too early it can be detrimental. I am not sure that is always the case, but AFCB were ready for a battle and by opening the door before half time with Fraser's goal it was beautifully set up for Arter to have almost the final say with the Cherries third goal.

If there was any one you would have wanted the ball to fall for in that situation it would be Harry. He seems to delight in scoring great goals from the edge of the box. Long may that continue.

While the team will be hard at work training and also relaxing over the next 10 days, you can already see that the centre midfield area will be back to full strength as long as there are no further injuries. It appears that Arter is certainly Eddie's first choice along with Collison, but the Forest game should see MacDonald and O'Kane ready to come in if required.
