On Neil Moss, Bond went on to say: "It's what you are there for and if you are a good goalkeeper like Mossy is, I would expect him to make them. But I understand that they don't always make them and something might spill out but he is a real good goalkeeper. Gareth Stewart is a real good goalkeeper and Stewart is hurting a great deal I know, because of the type of guy he is, because he is not playing. Because in fairness to him he didn't do anything wrong to get out of the side, he just lacked that height and that was really why I put Mossy back in".
And on Eddie Howe: "I thought he played really well, I thought both centre-halves played really well, I thought the back four played really well. I thought their front two looked bright, little Kuffour looked really bright, a constant threat and it wasn't an easy situation. We had Shaun Cooper injured in the warm-up - a reoccurrence of a hamstring injury. So we decided to put Marc Wilson in there at left back and I thought he did fantastic considering he has just joined the club yesterday and a position that he has not really played before, I thought he did extremely well".
Anderton was also interviewed on BBC Radio Solent after the match, here is what he had to say: "It was a tough game, conditions weren't ideal obviously and it was very difficult. I thought we started off really well. I don't know how it wasn't a penalty early doors but then Eddie had a great chance and the keeper pulled off a miraculous save so we started in the right vein but they slowly came back into the game. We kept plugging away and got the result that we deserved. It was an awful game to play in at times. The conditions were not good, not only was it very wet and the pitch saw balls skidding off here, there and everywhere, it was the wind that was causing the problems and made it very difficult to get the ball down and play".
