Howe: Camp had an excellent day

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe believes that Cherries 'keeper Lee Camp deserved a clean sheet for his efforts against Leicester City.

The former Northern Ireland international goalkeeper won the man of the match award for a string of fine saves throughout the match.

During the first half he saved a couple of one one one chances for the league leaders, reacting well and forcing the ball on to the crossbar and over for a corner.

His fine form continued in the second half where his saves kept the Cherries in the match until he was finally beaten by a Kevin Phillips header.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

"He had an excellent day. He kept us in it during the first half and you thought that would be enough to get us a point but it wasn`t to be.

"The one-on-ones were big saves because they gave us belief going into half-time that we could get something from the game. He almost saved the goal as well so we were disappointed because he deserved a clean sheet."

"It was a tough game and the conditions and pitch were difficult to manage. I thought we started game really well and then Leicester came on strong and showed what a good side they are. You have to give them credit because nine wins in a row is a remarkable achievement.

Camp had a truly excellent day but nobody in football "deserves" anything, including a clean sheet. Leicester broke through many times through our defence and so you could say Leicester "deserved" to win 0-4. The score is the score and we lost having played very well against a strong side. Time to learn and move on.

...Camp was doing his job (which he probably gets well paid for)....made some great saves, but truth is Leicester cut our defence open on too many ocassions and we couldn't even scratch their back four or test that danish poser!
