AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told the Daily Echo…
“It was important we did that (thanked the crowd), They’ve come every week and watched us and we haven’t performed as we would have wanted to throughout the season. We acknowledge their support.
“I think there are a lot of clubs up and down the country that maybe wouldn’t have been given the time and support that we have.
“We have to recognise that and show our appreciation – I am very thankful we performed and scored goals in front of them.
“Hopefully that feeling and that bond between the players and supporters can remain strong because we are going to need them more than ever in our battle ahead.”
How big was that save from Aaron Ramsale from Neal Maupay at nil-nil tonight 👏👊

Just got in and though it is 2C outside I didn’t feel cold.
It was so good to see our side get back to giving the opposition problems.
Callum Wilson scored his first goal for ages and that hopefully will trigger more.
Ryan Fraser’s shot in the second half just went wide, but that was what we were used to seeing from Ryan in the past, cut in and shoot.
Harry Wilson scored the first to settle the side and it was good to see goals go in the opposition net three times rather than ours.
The first time we have scored 3 goals since beating Saints back in September.
The home game before that we beat Everton 3-1.
Well done Eddie Howe for keeping the belief and tonight it looked like our players believed as well.
Now for the next cup final against Aston Villa.
Workrate, workrate, workrate. Everyone was pumped up tonight and ran themselves into the ground. Where that’s been recently I don’t know, and how sustainable it is I don’t know, but how fantastic to see tonight!
Brighton for their part are in trouble I think. They don’t look too good
Who cares, tonight was about us getting ourselves back into the fight. – Join the conversation, click here.
