Manager Eddie Howe was quoted on BBC Radio Solent after the match as saying: "I think we missed Warren Cummings. He's an experienced left-back, the only one in the squad. And, when you lose someone from a specialist position, it's difficult to replace them. It was really tough to break them down. I thought they defended very well and made it difficult for us. But we've got to look at ourselves and be braver at home".
