THE OFFICIAL VIEW

Bournemouth boss Lee Bradbury told BBC Radio Solent:

“We knew we had to compete today against a very athletic, dynamic team and we did so I’m delighted.

“The first goal was like knife through butter, it was a beautifully crafted passing movement with very slick touches and a very good finish.

“They had the odd half chance or two, but they didn’t create anything against us today and we were the team looking to score the third and fourth.”

Bournemouth boss Lee Bradbury told BBC Radio Solent:

“Fair play to Exeter they were a good side, they kept the ball well and we didn’t.

“You’re going to have little blips- we’ll go again Saturday when we have a massive game.

“It’s all about characters, we’ve got to be strong and have self belief. They played well tonight. They beat us fair and square.”

THE TFTSE VIEW

Yet again those lovely chaps from up the road managed to finish a game against the Cherries with a two-goal advantage. The Cherries looked like they were not quite ready for the big stage with this season’s best two players contriving to give the Scummers a way back into the game. With the game level at half-time it was set up to be an enthralling half, and the home side were on top until poor defending saw Bournemouth fail to clear and a lucky shot find the back of the net. As soon as the Cherries conceded there heads went down and they seemed to give up. A turned down penalty appeal and a Robinson shot tipped onto the bar could have seen a different result. The result was not a far reflection of the game, but it once again showed that we are currently seriously lacking in firepower. Perhaps if we had kept our best two strikers or even had the one we still have fit it might have been different. But, this is all ifs and buts and we were beaten on the day and now need to look forward to picking up points, there is still plenty to play for. Look forward to meeting, and beating the Scum in Manchester in May.
