South Coast Club Reaction - Cherries
Here's some post match reaction from the derby encounter at St Mary's from the Cherries camp. Manager Eddie Howe wasn't overly impressed with the match officials, being quoted after the match as saying: "I'm probably going to get into trouble for this, but the referee clearly favoured the home team and when you come to a place like this with a big intimidating crowd you need a strong referee. Referees have a tough job and I don't normally comment on them, but we feel hard done by. Rhoys Wiggins says he was fouled before the ball even hit his arm for the first penalty, and I think the second one was debatable. I felt we had four good shouts for penalties - two of them were absolutely nailed on and everyone in the crowd could see them except the referee".
