Defence a disappointment for Howe
Andy Morrell scored the only goal of the game to give the Shakers their first league win in five matches leaving the Cherries just four points clear of the drop zone. "Any goal we've conceded is a disappointment," said Howe, himself a former defender. "It looked like a soft goal and there were things we could have done about it. "We huffed and puffed a little bit without creating any real chances, there was no pressure from us at the end. "I had a feeling it just wasn't going to drop for us, which is really disappointing because we've worked hard all week on our attacking play and it didn't quite happen."
