Here's further post match reaction following the important 0-0 draw at Spotland against table toppers Rochdale. Manager Eddie Howe was naturally pleased with the 0-0 draw at Spotland on Easter Monday, being quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "It was a tough afternoon. The pitch, as everyone at the game could see, was not one for good football but I thought we tried to play the right way. We’re going in the right direction and this was definitely a point gained. Lee has been excellent for us and it wasn’t ideal to have to bring him off. He’s performed consistently and we haven’t got another right-back, but Anton Robinson did a great job when we moved him there. We had to re-balance the team but that has been the story of the season. Joe Partington was excellent as well when he came on and he’s worked hard at his game over the past few weeks".
