Howe: I am very proud of the performance

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe spoke of his pride in his team following the defeat to promotion hopefuls Derby County.

The Cherries travelled to Pride Park with just one win in eight outings and without a win in three games away from Dean Court.

In contrast, Derby County were the inform team in the division and one of the favourites for promotion to the Premier League.

But it was the Cherries who enjoyed the better chances throughout the match, especially through a very impressive first half performance.

But the match swung on a a decision by referee Mark Heywood to award a free-kick following a Tommy Elphick challenge.

Chris Martin scored the subsequent free kick with an fantastically executed set piece which curled into the top corner.

Howe told afcb.co.uk...

"I thought we were excellent, Sometimes it`s very difficult in defeat to say that because you feel like you expect people to think you`re not telling the truth, but I couldn`t have been prouder of the players really.

"We have come to a really good ground and I thought we were very good defensively today.

"It`s taken a worldy free kick to beat us - I couldn`t see them scoring from open play...'

'...All in all, I am very proud of the performance and I believe if we play like that for the rest of the season we will pick up a lot of points."
