AFC Bournemouth's development squad were defeated 3-0 by Leicester City at the Seagrave Training Ground earlier today. 

The Cherries found themselves a goal down at half-time but couldn't claw it back after the interval, the Foxes scoring twice more to secure the win. 

After the match, manager Shaun Cooper gave his thoughts to afcb.co.uk and discussed what his side can build on ahead of next week's Premier League Cup game away at Southampton. 

"It was a challenging game for us," he began.

"Credit to the players, we were brave to try and play out under pressure. When we got it right, we took a lot of players out the game but unfortunately we didn't get it right often enough.

"On the flip side, we looked to press them high and they were a good team who were very fluid.

"When we pressed well, we got in good situations but again we didn't do that enough so it was a really challenging game for us. 

"We had decisions to make today, whether to change our approach or not so it was a good learning day all round.

"We stuck with what we were trying to do and take the lessons from that to try and fix it. Unfortunately that wasn't the case, so we'll all reflect and learn from it." 

Cooper went on to discuss next week's game against Southampton in the Premier League Cup, but admitted that there are plenty of incentives to get back on the training pitch. 

The development squad travel to AFC Totton for a 7pm kick-off on Wednesday in what will be their third group game of the competition. 

"We're looking forward to getting back on the training ground, firstly in preparation for Southampton and secondly to get going again after a 3-0 defeat. 

"The lads love the Premier League Cup, it's a good competition for us and they'll be fans there watching.

"They're all aware that they're playing for their places next week, so they'll be training for that.

"We'll have a good look at Southampton and put a plan together to hopefully try and get a result." 

Information on next week's game away at Southampton will be on afcb.co.uk in the coming days, with supporters having to purchase a match ticket in order to attend.
