Swindon Town Reaction - Cherries

Last updated : 12 January 2013 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator

As the Cherries extended their undefeated run to a club equalling 18 matches (in all competitions), a record which dates back to a run that extends across the 81/82 and 82/83 seasons, manager Eddie Howe was quoted after the match as saying: "It was a really good match up until the heavens really opened after about 30 minutes, it was end to end, two teams really going at each other. I think the conditions really ruined the game which was a real shame from our perspective being a football team. It was difficult to play our normal game, we had to slightly adjust and I think that played into their hands. In difficult conditions I thought, in the main, we defended really well".

On our visitors: "They put a lot of balls in the box, they ask questions of you; I think they're a very good side, I think they're very well organised and it was a really good test".

On the weather: "At one stage (thought match may not last the 90 minutes) thankfully it did, I think the referee had a difficult call to make at half time, we were 1-0 up and obviously wanting the game to carry on and I think he was in slight doubt as to what to do. I think it's easy to say after the game because we've drawn that it was the wrong decision but I think it was the right decision but it did change the game".
