Manager Paul Groves was pleased with the character shown by his players at the Goldsands Stadium who, despite being down to ten men, gained a point against Preston and on another day could have taken all three.
Groves was also full of praise for the Cherries faithful as he gave his verdict after the final whistle.
“Again the supporters were fantastic and it’s a great credit to them for staying with us. They could understand the situation," he told afcb.co.uk.
“We were down to ten men and you are always going to get pegged back and it is difficult, but the crowd helped us enormously.
“I was pleased with the character of the team because as a group they stood up, rolled their sleeves up and kept going. We showed good quality, played in the ascendency and had a good pace to our game.
“We have been unfortunate in the points tally we have but we are unbeaten. People will look at at us and will say that Bournemouth are hard to beat. That’s the first port of call - to make yourself difficult to beat.
“With the work ethic and determination we have shown that we are a difficult team to play against. What we need is the consistency to continue and to show the qualities we have shown on a regular basis.”
