AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe was disappointed to watch his side drop control of the game against Hull City.

The Cherries enjoyed an excellent start to the fixture when Ryan Fraser was clearly fouled inside the box.

Junior Stanislas confidently stepped up to score, putting the ball in the top corner.

The Cherries continued to enjoy good possession, but Hull City got back into the game on the half an hour mark when an excellent cross was dispatched by Abel Hernandez.

Abel Hernandez turned the game around when he scored his second, before Tyrone Mings scored an own goal to seal the points for Hull.

It was AFC Bournemouth’s seventh defeat from eleven away from home this season.

Howe told Sky Sports

‘We`ve had the perfect start – the early goal – and from that point, we were looking to consolidate that and really control the game and I thought we threatened to do it.

“We just let control of the game slip and unfortunately the second half of the game was tough to watch.

‘We started really brightly, controlling the game and had really good possession, we looked like we were going to hurt them as well. But we just let that control slip with some poor technical mistakes from our perspective then of course the goals changed the flow of the game.”

“The away form hasn`t been as solid as last year where we were very good on the road, the last game against Swansea we looked a really strong side, but today – for whatever reason – that didn`t happen.”

Your Say…

‘Yet again Ed says he thought we had good possession today.
We must be topping the league with the amount of games we’ve dominated possession wise?
It’s time maybe to stop the sideways and back passing and play a little percentage football……it actually can work ask Hull, Sunderland and Burnley Etc.
I for one would sacrifice a bit of the beautiful game for seeing out a few more points.
Up the Cherries!
