Howe: We responded

Howe: We responded

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe was pleased that his side responded to the defeat to Walsall at the weekend with a win over Hartlepool on Tuesday night.

The Cherries had come off the back of an eighteen game unbeaten run to lose back to back games against Premier League side Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup and went on to lose 3-1 away at Walsall to an end a fifteen game unbeaten run in the league.

Howe made some bold changes for the game at Hartlepool, former England international 'keeper David James and striker Wesley Thomas were both dropped from the starting XI and not included in the match day squad.

Whilst Brett Pitman was also dropped to the bench. Steve Cook was unavailable due to his court case starting this week.

Shwan Jalal stepped in for James, Dan Seaborne on loan from Southampton replaced Cook, Richard Hughes, Marc Pugh and Josh McQuoid were also reinstated back into the side.

Josh McQuoid opened the scoring for the Cherries, before Hartlepool, who have only won two games all season grabbed an equaliser in the second half.

But a penalty which was tucked away by Lewis Grabban was enough to secure all three points.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

"The big thing was that we responded, I said to the players before the game that good teams don`t lose two in a row. As disappointed as I was on Saturday, I was pleased tonight. The lads were brave on the ball, they passed it superbly and we had some great chances."
