Speaking after the match, manager Eddie Howe was quoted as saying: "I'm pleased with the point and more pleased with the performance - especially in the second half I thought we were excellent in a different way to how we have been lately. We had great chances in the second half. We're kicking ourselves that we didn't take one of them but I'm so pleased with the lads' attitude and commitment to the cause. I thought we did everything but win the game in the end. The lads couldn't have given anymore - that's all you can ask and we keep the unbeaten run going".
