Bournemouth and Southampton tied 3-3 in today’s English Premier League fixture, and manager Eddie Howe was not happy.

Bournemouth couldn’t maintain a 2-1 advantage and ended up drawing 3-3 against Southampton in today’s English Premier League fixture.

And the Cherries’ boss Eddie Howe was not happy after only earning one point today.

“It’s been a very inconsistent end to the season, it’s been hugely frustrating, not just for me but for the players and supporters and we are desperate for some forward momentum going into next season,” he told Sky Sports.

“We have picked up injuries. Gosling has had to come off, Solanke did something to his hamstring at the end, David Brooks was limping. We were nursing players through while having to make changes.”

He added: “It has been the story of the second half of the campaign and has impacted our results. I will be very pleased for the season to end and get some players back fit.”

“We are pleased to come back twice but then disappointed with Callum’s chance at the end that we haven’t won it.”

“But we needed to show real heart and desire for our supporters and we did that,” said Howe.

“There were huge swings in the game today, from their strong start to our really good end to the half, then they came out strong again and we finished the game really strongly. The goals followed the swing of the game and we did well to hang in there.”
