Speaking after the 1-1 draw at Dean Court, Leyton Orient boss, Russell Slade was quoted as saying: "I'm delighted with the resilience and the attitude of the team again, I think they started really brightly. It's a great point. I thought we carved them open. There were one or two nice openings in the second period. We had greater control of the ball in the second half but we didn't punish them".
Slade is also quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "I really like Bournemouth and they knock it about well. There is a really nice enthusiasm about them and a good spirit. They have good energy and good legs. They are not without ability and have certainly shown they are capable of scoring goals. What surprised me a little was that they were quite direct at times. It may have been because Ben Chorley was missing for us but they hit the ball from back to front and it was probably a ploy to try to unsettle us as we lacked a bit of height at the back. Whether they can get automatic promotion, I don’t know. But I certainly think they will finish in the top six. There is no question in my mind that they are there for the duration".
