Poor start annoys Howe

11 Mar 2009 - 11:50:14

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe hopes he will not have to repeat the half-time verbal lashing he gave his team at Exeter City.

The Cherries moved out of the relegation zone after coming back from a 1-0 interval deficit at St James Park to beat Paul Tisdale's side 3-1.

Howe said: "I was fuming at half-time because I didn't think we turned up in the first half. It was probably as angry as I've been.

"Exeter played really well and could have been more than one up at the break. Although we came back into it in the final ten minutes, we started slowly and could have been punished further.

"I can't repeat what was said at half-time but it seemed to get a few of them going and, thankfully, the second-half performance showed what we're about.

"But it shouldn't have to take a few words from me at half-time to get that."
