O'Kane Keen To Keep Place
Having started against Blackpool, Eunan O'Kane is understandably keen to keep his place in the starting line up.
With injuries to Harry Arter and Andrew Surman, Eunan O'Kane was handed the opportunity of his first start since picking up a knock against Huddersfield Town last month.
Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, the 23-year-old is quoted as saying: "It was nice to get my first Championship start. I have been so unfortunate with injuries. Then, when I was fit, Harry and Shaun were doing a really good job and I couldn’t get in. Unfortunately for Harry, he had a little bit of a knock and Drew is also out, so I got my chance. Hopefully, I did enough on Saturday for the gaffer to be a little bit impressed with me and, hopefully, he will be thinking 'Eunan can do the job at this level'. I had injuries and at the start of the season, I wasn’t quite ready. The gaffer had to go with the best team he had at that given time and I knew Harry and Shaun was the partnership that he had to go with. After doing my ankle at Huddersfield, I thought I was never going to be ready or have the opportunity. Thankfully, it came on Saturday and it is nice to say I have played in the Championship, even though we lost".
