Gillingham Reaction - Cherries I

Last updated : 01 March 2009 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
In a match which saw five Cherries players booked (Robinsom, Goulding, Fletcher, Molesley and Tindall - after the final whistle), manager Eddie Howe speaks of his frustration at how the match went.

Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Howe is quoted as saying: "We needed to keep our discipline and we got very frustrated at the lack of football. There were so many stoppages in the second half and it was disappointing for us because we just wanted to get the ball and play. The spectators would probably say the same. There were some great challenges that got penalised and there were some great tackles that ended up as free kicks. It was a frustrating afternoon. I didn't think we created a lot and that was the disappointing thing because I thought we were the better side. You need to take your chances when you're on top. The second half was more even and Gillingham came into it more. We were just looking for a little bit of magic from someone but it just didn't happen. We've got two home games coming up and they are both big games for us. We just need to keep going and show the same fight and spirit as we did today".
