Cherries midfielder passed fit for Cup tie

Published Add your comment

Bournemouth should have Harry Arter available for their Carling Cup clash against Southampton.

The midfielder made his debut in the 1-0 defeat at Charlton on Saturday and was replaced at the interval after feeling his knee.

But the 20-year-old should be fit to feature against the Saints after manager Eddie Howe withdrew him for tactical reasons as the away side looked for a way back into the match.

Arter's replacement, Michael Symes, is still not at 100% despite getting a solid half under his belt.

The striker has been struggling with a groin injury over the summer and he may have to settle for a start on the bench again.

Brett Pitman is likely to lead the line as Howe names an unchanged side at St Mary's.
