Bournemouth v Newcastle: Defences aren't to be trusted in south coast showdown

The substitutes made a difference and we were able to change the game and pen them in their own half.

Newcastle manager, Rafael Benitez has slammed his men, after they lost a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 against Bournemouth.

The Cherries were 2-0 down at the end of the first half after a double from Dwight Gayle, but late goals from Adam Smith and Dan Gosling saw the spoils shared.

The Magpies are 15 in the table with 29 points after 28 games, two points above the drop zone. "Rafa Benitez will be livid and that's why sometimes he doesn't play him, because he's the best passer in their team, but moments like that can cost you a game". That bet has paid out in six of Bournemouth's last seven home matches in the league, and four of Newcastle's last five Premier League outings.

He added: "I always believed that we were good enough despite the situation".

Gosling scored in the 89th minute, courtesy of Nathan Ake to restore parity.

"Everybody is disappointed, especially him (Shelvey)". We miss a chance, we concede a goal and then we lost the control we had for 70 minutes. Thus, any efforts that net three points for either Bournemouth or Newcastle will be huge to create some breathing room from the clubs trying to stave off a relegation battle.

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe praised his players' resolve and felt it was vital they did not lose to another relegation rival, having been beaten 4-1 at Huddersfield last time out.

Cherries manager Eddie Howe said he was satisfied with the point, adding: "It was a unusual afternoon".

"I certainly feel it during the match - today was tough". When you have played so well against one of the top sides, you are expected to do well again, so we have to make sure we perform.

"It was a massive (final) 20 minutes for us and full credit to the players for delivering what they did".
