Eddie Howe praised his AFC Bournemouth side for their resilience after the 1-0 win at Sunderland yesterday.
Joshua King netted a late winner to secure back-to-back wins for the Cherries, and end Sunderland’s 10-year stay in the Premier League.
Howe, talking to BBC Radio Solent after the match, said that his side had to show a different side to their game to get the result.
‘Attitude, commitment, the ugly stuff today – we wern’t fluent with the ball, we wern’t fantastic off the ball.. we had to dig in.’ he said.
‘We stayed in the game , we kept a clean sheet, and that enabled us to nick it at the end’
On the Cherries passing the 40-point mark, Howe said:
‘It puts us in a good position… with three games to go, hopefully we can beat last year’s total, that was always our aim this season’
