AFC Bournemouth manager Paul Groves was pleased with the Cherries performance against Premier League new boys Reading on Saturday.
The Cherries came from behind twice to end the game 2-2, with the goals coming from Wesley Thomas and Miles Addison.
AFC Bournemouth fell behind early in the first half following Stephane Zubar conceding a free-kick, 40 yards from goal over by the East Stand by-line.
The resulting free-kick was whipped in and the Cherries failed to deal with the set-piece.
Following good work from Matt Tubbs and Wesley Thomas, the home side were back on level terms before the half-time break, only to concede dubious penalty when trialist Jonathan Meades was adjudged to have fouled inside the box.
The Cherries late equaliser came from another cross, with Marc Pugh twisting and turning to find space before Addison headed home the equaliser.
Groves told the afcb.co.uk...
"I felt we controlled large parts of the game which was important, especially against better opposition. I would have liked us to have been more of a threat on their goal at different stages of the game, but overall there was a good level of fitness attained from the game and good understanding of how we are trying to do things. There were certainly plenty of pluses to be taken...'
'...We have done a lot of work this pre-season on our finishing in general and it was nice that although we didn`t get too many chances, the ones that we did create we took. To get back level on two occasions was very pleasing too. We will go in to detail with regards to the ones that we conceded, and I feel there are areas we can improve upon, but overall, it was pleasing."
