Howe backs Simpson to respond from penalty error

23rd April 2019, 09:16 by Tom Hill

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe claims Jack Simpson will learn from his error following Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Fulham.

The Weymouth-born defender replaced Junior Stanislas midway through the first half and Howe was forced to reshuffle his defence.

Simpson and co kept a clean sheet in the first half but the 22-year-old gave a penalty away in the 53rd minute as he produced a clumsy challenge on Fulham's Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Mitrovic picked himself up to score from the spot but Howe believes Simpson will improve after just his fourth game in the Premier League.

He told the Daily Echo: "Jack is very good in these situations. I think he is very level. The highs and lows, I think he takes both very well.

"It was a momentary blip for him and something he will learn from for sure. I had several disappointments in my career, but it made me stronger and more aware of what can happen if you don't quite get it right.

"I think that will be a good thing for him in the long run."
