Speaking on BBC Radio Solent after the match, manager Eddie Howe was quoted as saying: "It was a slow start. I think it was a little bit bitty first half but I think the pleasing thing from my perspective was we weren't at our best, but we didn't concede and came in level at half time. We were desperate for that first goal and when it came it was great. It was right at the start of the second half, it picked the crowd up and from that point on we looked quite comfortable. I thought Lewis Grabban took his goals really well. I thought the second goal especially was a great finish".
