Manager Eddie Howe was quoted after the match as saying: "It was an outstanding win with some outstanding individual displays. I can see why the referee gave the red card because Yann's foot was very high. It was nothing malicious - it's just Yann and the way he plays. It was a difficult game to prepare for but what we did bank on was Bolton playing two up front and having a right go. When Dougie left, the crowd was no longer going to be our friend - it was going to be Bolton's friend. I forgot in the second half that we were down to 10 men. We had a man less but we passed the ball the same. That should give us a huge lift for the remaining games that we have this season that we can compete."
