AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe believed his side could well have taken all three points against Watford following the 2-2 draw at Vicarage Road.

The Cherries led twice against Watford, with Junior Stanislas crossing for Callum Wilson to score his second goal of the season to open the scoring.

Troy Deeney scored Watford’s first equaliser, before Joshua King scored an excellent individual effort to make it 2-1 to the visitors.

But Watford pegged the Cherries back for a second time when Isaac Success headed past Artur Boruc.

AFC Bournemouth also hit the woodwork three times with Jack Wilshere hitting the same post twice during the second half and Junior Stanislas hitting the crossbar from a free kick late on.

Howe told Sky Sports

‘I thought we deserved to nick it on the quality of chances. We hit the woodwork three times, where perhaps we could have done better in those situations, But we scored two goals and looked threatening. That’s the most pleasing thing to leave today with because that hasn’t always been the case this season.

‘The team got stronger the longer the game wore on and I thought we were the team on the ascendancy at the end of the game.

‘We looked like we had a cutting edge and creativity and it bodes well for the future.’
