Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe felt his side had created enough chances to have comfortably won the tie after seeing them bow out of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy against Torquay on penalties.
Torquay won the shoot-out 3-0 after a goalless 90 minutes, but Howe believed his side had dominated.
He said: "I don't know what happened with the spot-kicks, but we did not do very well.
"We had a lot of injuries and that meant playing a 16-year-old as our only striker. But young Jayden Stockley did all that could be asked of him and it will be great experience playing against tough defenders.
"I thought we were dominant throughout the game and we should have won it in normal time.
"Some of our play in the second half was outstanding and on another day we could have got two or three goals."
