Bradbury pragmatic about Cherries slip

Bournemouth boss Lee Bradbury had mixed emotions after watching his play-off chasing side lose a two-goal advantage to draw 2-2 at Yeovil. The Glovers lost skipper Paul Huntington to two bookable offences in the 50th minute before the visitors raced into a commanding lead courtesy of two Danny Ings goals, the first of which came from the penalty spot. But Adam Virgo`s penalty and then Shaun MacDonald`s injury-time header rescued a point for Yeovil. Bradbury said: "We were in control of the match at 2-0 but we didn't see it out. It was all very frustrating. We should have had another two points, but it is another game closer to where we want to be." He added: "I said to our lads we have got to grow up quickly. If we went up next year we would get punished every week if we are that naive. "There was no doubt about our penalty. When our lad (Adam Smith) went down under a challenge the referee waved play on, but the linesman saw that the Yeovil man (Adam Virgo) picked Smith up and then threw him down again. The Yeovil penalty was harsh. Harry Arter was adjudged to have handled but it was a very harsh decision."
