Manager Eddie Howe was quoted on BBC Radio Solent as saying after the match: "It was a really disappointing start for us when it's such a big game and such big expectancy to go 1-0 down within a couple of minutes. I think it was a real test for us and it was a good challenge and to see how we responded. We haven't done very well when we've conceded at home the first goal - it was really pleasing to see us come through from that. I think that in itself pleases me probably more than anything today. I didn't think we particularly played well 11 v 10, but it's difficult. I thought Notts County defended very well, they had a game plan, half time helped them - they could regroup - they stuck everybody behind the ball as we thought they would and it shows how difficult it is to break down when you do it right".
