Howe: A point deserved

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe was pleased to come away from Carrow Road with a point against Norwich City.

In a tight but entertaining game of football, which was end to end at times, the game was decided typically by the two strikers who had been involved in summer transfer dealings.

The opener was scored by Lewis Grabban, who after scoring 22 goals for the Cherries last season made the move to Norwich for £3million after they triggered his release clause following their relegation from the Premier League.

The equaliser was scored by Callum Wilson, who after scoring 20+ goals for Coventry last season had the option of moving to Norwich or AFC Bournemouth after both sides agreed a fee, with Wilson opting to join the Cherries.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

'...we rode our luck but I think we got what we deserved in the end. A point is a good result off the back of two defeats.

"Their goal was a disappointment because it was out of context in the game. They had not had a chance, it was their first ball into the box and they scored.

"For Grabbs to score a header is equally frustrating because it`s not really his trademark but he took it well...'

'...(our) goal was magnificent. We switched the play from side to side and it was a really incisive move.

"Although it looked an easy finish, it wasn`t. The ball came at a pace and Callum was running, so he controlled the shot very well.
