Manager Nathan Jones was delighted with his side's terrific victory against high-flying Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall scored the only goal of the game against the ten-man Cherries in a performance that more than merited the outcome.

Speaking pitchside after the match, the gaffer said: “In hindsight, if you looked at the two games and said 'right you’re going to take three points from these next two games', you probably would have thought we would beat QPR and admirably lose to Bournemouth.

“We were really disappointed with our performance (on Tuesday), but it might have been understandable with the lay-off we’ve had.

“Today I thought we were excellent, I really do. Up until the sending off I thought we were very good. They are a wonderful side and for me in the top two of quality.

“They have been recruiting for the Premier League for the last eight, nine years, so the athleticism, quality, technique, calibre of player and pace that they have can punish any team, so we knew we had to play well today.

“We defended fantastically well, limited them to very little, keeper had one save to make, their keeper had more, albeit most of it when they went down to ten men.

“But I think the ten men will take the shine off a real good performance. Realistically I probably would have taken a point today, so to take three I’m delighted.”
