Manager Eddie Howe, was quoted on BBC Radio Solent after the match as saying: "It's football. The ups and downs are unbelievable, we haven't won the title and we were desperate for that. It was the cruellest way it could ever be snatched away but what can you do? It's out of our control. We did everything but win the game, our performance was excellent...we just didn't get that break we needed. I have to look at the overall picture and how far this club's come from a few months ago. If someone had said you'd be disappointed if you don't win the title on the last day we wouldn't have believed it".
