O'Kane: Great for the neutrals to watch

O'Kane: Great for the neutrals to watch

AFC Bournemouth midfielder Eunan O'Kane believes the Cherries draw with Middlesbrough on Saturday was one for the neutrals.

The Cherries raced into a 2-0 lead inside the opening 12 minutes of the match with a quickfire brace from striker Brett Pitman after the Cherries had been awarded two penalties.

By half time however Middlesbrough were back on level terms and the home side took the lead during the second half, only to concede a late own goal with less than 10 minutes remaining.

The draw gave AFC Bournemouth a well earned point, a fourth in their last two away games which O'Kane was pleased about after starting the Championship campaign conceding eleven goals against Watford and Huddersfield.

O'Kane told afcb.co.uk...

"It might be great for the neutrals to watch, but it`s not ideal when you are playing and the games are so open and there are as many goals as there have been, Since the Watford and the Huddersfield games, the performances have been better and we have worked on improving as a group.

"In the last couple of away games we have been able to deal with the other team`s threat much better and we`ve been better going forward ourselves.

"In Bournemouth, there`s pressure on us to play and we have to go after wins. But I think the way we play away from home frustrates other teams and you could see that at Middlesbrough.

"We have a little bit more freedom as well and it`s something we embrace. If we can go away and control games, then that`s what we want to do."
