Brighton & Hove Albion Reaction - Cherries

Last updated : 02 January 2008 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
Manager Kevin Bond was gutted after the side conceded a late winner at Withdean. He is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "It was all of our own making and we brought about our own downfall. We fought hard to get back into the game and deserved to get back into it but gave away the most diabolical of goals in the last seconds. We needlessly gave the ball away after having had it from a throw in their half and for the umpteenth time, we didn't defend a set-piece. It was nothing short of disgraceful. Ultimately, I will take responsibility for anything that happens on the pitch and I fully accept that. But, and for whatever reason, the players decided that they wouldn't concentrate until the end and didn't do their jobs. I've got to live with this and I'm going to dwell on it like you can't believe and I want them to dwell on it because I don't want it to happen again. I don't know what I can do to try to get them to concentrate and take responsibility so I'll let them think about it every day between now and Saturday week".
Disappointed at Brighton
