Howe thrilled with Cherries comeback


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has spoken of his delight at the Cherries’ second half comeback.

Goals from Jordon Ibe and Junior Stanislas cancelled out Jay Rodriguez’s opener, with Howe’s side now 11th in the Premier League.

Following the game, the boss spoke upon the following points in his post-match press conference.

On the performance…

I’m thrilled with us producing another comeback. Trust me, we don’t want to do it that way, but at this point of the season I think I’ll take any way if it means us getting three points.

West Brom made it tough, they are a very experienced side, they have very experienced Premier League players and an experienced manager, so it was hard to find a way to win against them.  

On the result…

It was important to get a result today off the back of the Tottenham and Leicester games. I thought we played very well in those games and today we didn’t.

But football has a strange way of working like that. We want to try and win every game and there’s only seven to go now.  

On the turning point…

It’s quite funny because I saw Jordon [Ibe] hit it and I was then blocked off by a player when it was in the air.

When it left his foot, I thought it was going to be tough to score from where he was and I wasn’t sure it was going to find the net, but it did. That was the turning point in the game.
