AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe was pleased with taking the points from a fifth consecutive victory on Monday.
The Cherries completed the East Bank Holiday weekend with two 1-0 victories, the first coming at Colchester on Friday and the second coming at Dean Court on Monday against Scunthorpe.
Once again it was Brett Pitman on the score-sheet, scoring his fifth goal in successive games to go along with five successive victories for the team. While the team have kept four clean sheets during that period.
With Doncaster Rovers beating Swindon, Sheffield United drawing at home to Carlisle and Brentford losing at stadium:mk, the Cherries remain in the automatic promotion places, two points behind Doncaster (who have one game in hand), three points ahead of Brentford (who have two games in hand), four points ahead of Sheffield United (who have three games in hand) and five points ahead of Swindon and Yeovil (who both have a game in hand).
Howe told the Daily Echo...
"Our defending in recent weeks has been much improved and it was great to get another clean sheet.
"I don`t care by what score we win as long as we win. We would like a better goal difference at this stage of the season but points are the priority.
"The lads have been very professional in their approach and in seeing out games. When you are winning 1-0, there is a tendency to drop deep and try to defend from you own penalty box for the last 10 to 15 minutes. We haven`t done that and have tried to keep the ball in the opposition`s half."
