Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Quinn is quoted as saying: "It was painful to watch at times. There was fear in our play and I don't like to see that. It's not a fear of winning, it's a fear of losing and we've got to rise above that. It may get worse before it gets better but I'll certainly give these lads all the confidence I can to go out and play".

Quinn went on to say: "The defending was poor. I'll have a look at the video before I make a proper analysis but he ran for 30 or 40 yards straight on top of the goal without any of our defenders going towards the goal. I told the players before the game that if they defended properly and kept a clean sheet it would go a long way to winning so it was tough when we conceded after a few minutes. But I was still confident that we would get back into the game and maybe go on to win it but we couldn't get that breakthrough".
