Speaking on BBC Radio Solent, manager Eddie Howe was pleased with the result, being quoted as saying: "It's a good result for us. This is a tough place to come, they play good football and they have some good players, so it was always going to be a tough examination for us. I thought we played some great football at times. Probably not so much towards the end when Brighton threw everything at us, but I thought for 60 or 70 minutes we were very good. I thought we had done enough because for 80 minutes Lee Camp didn't have a great deal to do. But then in the last 10 minutes he had all sorts to do and Brighton kept asking questions, and we are disappointed not to get three points with the late goal. But I have to look at the bigger picture and I'm pleased. I think this is another sign of how far we have come. To come here, get a point and be slightly disappointed shows that we have come an awful long way, which is pleasing to see. I was proud of the players and the way they tried to pass the ball in difficult conditions. Some of our one and two touch football was of a high standard".
