AFC Bournemouth winger Junior Stanislas believes that the Cherries performance deserved to get punished by Hull City.
Earlier this season the Cherries beat Hull City 6-1 at Dean Court.
The Cherries headed north for the away tie with Hull bottom of the Premier League.
After Ryan Fraser was clearly fouled inside the box, Junior Stanislas confidently stepped up to score, putting the ball in the top corner and giving the Cherries the early lead.
But once Hull City got back into the game through Abel Hernandez, the Cherries folded.
Stanislas told afcb.co.uk following the game…
“It`s frustrating, We usually get the ball down, pass it and do that effectively.
“Today as soon as they scored they got on the front foot and instead of passing it we went a little more direct, got caught on the ball and gave it away cheaply and if you do that in this league you get punished for it – and you saw that today.
“After a good start, we got a penalty and I stuck it away, we dominated the game for the first 25 minutes, then they scored and it was downhill from there.
“We were a little bit slow to react all around, the second half started the same and you get punished for that.”
‘Once the Players Think They Are Safe…….. they relax, switch off, and get beat easily.
It happened last season after Dubai and because most pundits think we are already safe from relegation this season, it seems to be happening again now.
Just a 1% drop in effort in this league, gets you punished. – Join the conversation here.
