Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe calls Newcastle draw 'a unusual afternoon'

Jamaal Lascelles

Newcastle threw away a two-goal lead in the last ten minutes at Dean Court yesterday, and Shelvey did not cover himself in glory.

However, Eddie Howe saw his men bounce back with goals from Adam Smith and Dan Gosling in the final quarter of the match.

"We had to find a way to open them up".

Newcastle supporters gave former Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe a predictably hostile reception when he came off the bench after two months out with an ankle injury.

"Hopefully, we will take the positives and the team will do the same things they did for most of the game".

"It's really encouraging that today we played a team in and around us and it's really important you don't get beaten by those teams and defeats to Huddersfield and Newcastle would have left us in a hard position". We have to be careful with him because he had a problem when he arrived.




What's interesting about Bournemouth and Newcastle now is that they both would appear to be clear of the relegation zone just looking at the table, sitting at 10th and 13th, respectively.

"We were doing well on the counterattack [against Bournemouth], but we had a couple of chances and you have to score".

For Bournemouth at home, they'll need Callum Wilson - who has seven goals on the year - to come through and get back to his scoring ways.

Howe also issued a challenge to his players after early goals almost cost them again, and wants them to start games quicker in the future.

He told Match of the Day (24/04, 22:30): "For as good as his passing was, his defensive side of his game in the latter stages didn't live up to it. We conceded against Stoke, Huddersfield and the same again today", he added. I'm not saying that Bournemouth aren't playing well or aren't a good side, but just that [2.2] seems short, especially against a Newcastle team that's quite tough to beat.
