Tindall salutes Symes

Assistant manager Jason Tindall lavished praise on substitute Michael Symes after his second-half cameo inspired Bournemouth to a 2-0 win over Carlisle. Symes came off the bench at the start of the second half after a dull first 45 minutes in which neither side could fashion a meaningful chance. But just three minutes after Symes' introduction, Bournemouth raced into the lead when Ryan Garry nodded Marc Pugh's pinpoint delivery in from close range. Symes got his own name on the scoresheet just after the hour when he coolly slotted home from the penalty spot after on-loan Tottenham debutant Adam Smith had been brought down by Francois Zoko. A delighted Tindall said: "We were poor in the first half but after Michael came on at half-time we had more of an attacking threat. He gave us a lot more going forward. "Symesy has only been training with us properly for a short period of time so he is not fully fit yet but he has shown what he can do. He made the difference." Tindall added: "This is a very good day because Carlisle are a good side and this was always going to be tough game, we are pleased to have all three points. We wanted a response after the defeat last week and we got it - these players always seem to respond to setbacks."
