Howe: Beaten by the better team

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe conceded that his side lost to a better Wigan Athletic side.

The Cherries travelled to the DW Stadium to face the FA Cup winners having only lost once in six games, whilst taking seven points from their last three away fixtures.

However the Cherries couldn't extend that run of form and were well beaten by Wigan.

Marc-Antoine Fortune opened the scoring after five minutes, but while Wigan threatened to double their lead, their second didn't come until an own goal from Elliott Ward on the hour mark.

The third and final goal came via Jordi Gomez in stoppage time.

Howe told BBC Radio Solent...

"It certainly wasn`t our best performance and especially in the first half we were well below where we have been in recent weeks, Prior to today, our performances had been very good for a sustained spell. But right from the off, we came under pressure, Wigan played a high pressing game and we didn`t deal with that very well.

"We also conceded goals at crucial times. We started the second half really well, were on top and then conceded.

"We got better as the game went on, had chances and if we had scored the goal perhaps we should have done at 2-0, it might have been a different game. But I think you have to say we were beaten by the better team.
