LATICS boss Harry Kewell says it’s a case of horses for courses after his team selection against Bournemouth raised a few eyebrows.

With Danny Rowe out injured and Zak Dearnley and Conor McAleny on the bench, Kewell went without an out-and-out frontman for the FA Cup third round defeat at the Vitality Stadium.

But despite some fans scratching their heads on social media, Latics impressed in the opening period.

The Cherries then pulled clear after the break to reach round four with a 4-1 win.

“Everyone’s allowed their opinions but we look at games and see where we can create space, we see where we can get vulnerability,” Kewell said.

“I felt we had about seven or eight good chances in the first half, the keeper’s made a couple of great saves and Jordan’s (Barnett) hit the inside of the woodwork.”
