Cape Town - Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is determined to build on the victory against Arsenal by beating Wigan in their FA Cup third-round replay on Wednesday.

The Cherries recorded an impressive 2-1 win over the Gunners in the Premier League on Sunday, which increased their unbeaten run in all competitions to five games, and Howe is hoping the form will continue.

Bournemouth were held to a 2-2 draw by Wigan in their third-round clash on January 6, and will now aim to beat the Latics away from home to progress further.

"Positive momentum is a hard thing to get when you're in the Premier League," Howe said, according to Sky Sports. "We are desperate to continue that and keep the good form that we're in.

"We have to make sure we make the right decisions for the team and the individuals concerned but of course we want to go through.

"To do that, we have to start the game better than we did the first game. I always prefer to look at things positively - it's another game and an opportunity for players to play and do well."
