Eddie Howe: Wigan Athletic game can 'help us through rest of season'
AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe believes his side's spirited FA Cup run will help push the Cherries towards promotion.
The Cherries were knocked out of the FA Cup by Wigan Athletic 1-0 in the third round replay at The Goldsands Stadium last night, but gave a good account of themselves against a Premier League opponent.
"We now concentrate on the main matter in hand, and that is being successful in the league" said Howe.
"We have enjoyed out cup run, but we know that the league is the most important thing and we can use the experience of two great games against a Premier League side to help us through the rest of the season."

Last night's defeat ended Bournemouth's 18-game unbeaten run- but the Dorset side are still unbeaten in their last 15 league games.
They haven't lost in League One since going down to Coventry City on October 6, under caretaker manager Dennis Roffe.
The Cherries sit in seventh place in the league table - level on 43 points with sixth-placed MK Dons.
