Manager Eddie Howe, speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, was quoted as saying: "The first half was fairly even but I was a little disappointed we couldn’t nick it in the second because we had some good chances. I want us to win every game but saw it as a point gained. Sometimes, you have to accept what you’ve got and we took something away with us. The conditions made sure it wasn’t a game of free-flowing football. Sometimes, you have to dig in and batten down the hatches to grind out a result and I thought we did that".
