Bradford City manager, Stuart McCall was quoted after the match, on their official web site as saying: "We definitely need someone who can give us something off the bench. We're very limited at the minute to change things late on in the game going forward. It's not just players in your first 11, it's what's underneath that. You do need to have options to change things. We've had three forwards out and then Leon Osborne gets a whack in the reserves that could put him out for two months. Hopefully there will be players coming back in the next couple of weeks but we just need an alternative to come on in the wide areas or down the middle in the last 15 or 20 minutes, especially at home. We had a couple of people in mind but one's injured and the other has started playing for his team now so I don't think he'd be allowed out. But we'll look at it over the next few days and if anyone's available we'll look to bring them in. Evo was still feeling his toe injury but he had to play because we had no other forwards".
On the Cherries McCall added: "Bournemouth have some very strong boys at the back but I thought Flynny gave as good as he got. We needed somebody like him up there to take the buffeting to help Evo".
