Cherries: Fogden wants to continue to impress
CHERRIES’ FA Cup talisman Wes Fogden is vowing to keep working hard as he bids to make an impression on manager Eddie Howe.
Fogden marked his first start under Howe by netting Cherries’ opener in their FA Cup second round triumph over Carlisle.
His 30th-minute strike – which added to his goal in the first round win over Dagenham & Redbridge – paved the way for Howe’s men to run out comfortable 3-1 victors.
Fogden told the Daily Echo: “I thought it was another solid performance and we just want to keep the run going. The lads are full of confidence at the moment and the squad is thriving. You can see from the performances that everyone is working hard and we are getting the rewards.
“It was my first start under the new manager. I am working hard and, hopefully, when I get the chance, I can give 100 per cent. Hopefully, with the squad we have got, we can go on a good run and get as far as we can in this competition.”
Fogden, signed from non-league Havant & Waterlooville during Lee Bradbury’s tenure as manager, has kept his place in the Cherries squad despite the arrival of some high-profile additions.
The 24-year-old added: “The club is looking to get promoted and get as high as it can. We are just taking one day at a time. The lads have been great. Everyone works hard and we have got great unity within the squad.
“As long as you give 100 per cent and do whatever you can then there can be no arguments. I am always going to give 100 per cent and, if it is good enough, it is good enough. If it is not then it is not but I am going to be as honest as I can. We have got a great squad and are moving up as a team.”
