Harry Arter believes AFC Bournemouth can live up to manager Eddie Howe’s high standards.
AFC Bournemouth exceeded all expectations last season when they returned to the second tier for the first time in 23
The Cherries are likely to be under more pressure this season and Harry Arter believes they can cope with the expectations of an even higher finish after the additions of Dan Gosling, Junior Stanislas and Callum Wilson.
Arter told the Daily Echo, “Going into the season, everybody is thinking about the play-offs. We have a team that wants to succeed and get to the highest level so play-offs and promotions are part of the expectations we have for ourselves.”
“We have a manager who expects high standards and I think the crowd realise that everyone is giving their all. We’re aiming to go as far as we can.”
Bournemouth are currently in Austria for a week before heading home to play the likes of Southampton and Swansea in pre-season friendlies.
