Drop hard to take for Bond

04 May 2008 - 15:02:37

Bournemouth manager Kevin Bond admitted after Saturday's 1-1 draw with Carlisle United that relegation was hard to take.

Despite taking 19 points from their last seven matches, the ten points the Cherries had docked for moving into administration proved to be crucial.

Bond said after the Brunton Park draw: "I said to the players before the game that I was confident we'd do well. I knew they'd give everything they'd got and they did.

"But for us to get what we needed, it was going to need to be our day and it wasn't. We needed the rub of the green and a key decision here and there, and today we didn't get it.

"When you've come as far as we've come to get to the position we were in today, it's hard to take."
