AFC Bournemouth midfielder Marc Pugh believes the Cherries showed good character to come from behind twice on Saturday to take a point at Bury.

Troy Hewitt opened the scoring for the home side inside the opening fifteen minutes before Lewis Grabban scored the Cherries first equaliser of the afternoon on the hour mark.

With just over ten minutes remaining David Worrall capitalised on some poor Cherries defending, slipping the ball under the onrushing David James to put Bury 2-1 up.

But during stoppage time the Cherries managed to find a second equaliser through Brett Pitman. The Cherries striker who had come off the bench twenty minutes earlier opened his goal tally for the season with a well taken finish.

There was still time for Marc Pugh to nearly steal all three points, but his stoppage time effort rattled off the bar.

Pugh told

‘Sometimes if you scuff a shot like that a little it will go in, Unfortunately I hit it too well. It was a pity because we deserved to win the game.

‘Our second-half performance warranted the three points. We had two cleared off the line, myself hitting the bar and then a bizarre situation with the penalty that was given, and then not given.

“We showed good character to come back twice, and we don`t know when we`re beaten at the moment…’
