Manager Eddie Howe was quoted on BBC Radio Solent as saying: "When you've got a striker in the form of Brett Pitman who is scoring goals like his second goal - which was a fantastic finish - it certainly makes it easier. But it was an all-round team performance again. We kept the ball well on a really difficult surface and played very well, so I'm delighted. We've made it difficult for ourselves in recent weeks, when we've dominated games and we've only won by the odd goal and had to defend with our lives. I see a steely determination in the group. I don't see flamboyance or any big gestures or any sign that we're ahead of ourselves".
