"You've got to give credit to Port Vale. They came here and worked hard and I think they came here for a point - that is what they got so you have to give them credit.
Port Vale Reaction - Cherries
Bournemouth Evening Echo after the match, assistant boss Jason Tindall, was quoted as saying: "We have two tough away games now and we must make sure we rest properly and go again against Exeter on Tuesday. There were a few injuries and a few lads carrying knocks before the game so it's a matter of assessing things over the next couple of days and seeing what bodies we have. Anton has got a dead leg from early in the first half, which is a shame because he has been excellent for us, and Marvin took a whack on his ankle. He tried to carry on for an extra five or 10 minutes, but it was getting worse. Hopefully in the next day or two they will settle down and they will be available for Tuesday. But whatever 11 we have fit and whatever 11 is selected for Tuesday, we know they will go out there and work hard and give their all. That's all we can ask for. We feel like it was two points lost. We've been in good form recently and we felt this was a game we could win".
