Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe labelled the day as “frustrating” as the Cherries were held to a 0-0 draw at home to Norwich at the Vitality Stadium.
The Bournemouth boss admitted that his side played some good football, but conceded that chances weren’t taken in the final third.
“It was a frustrating day. We played some really good football but it didn’t really get any better than that.”
“Norwich were always going to come into the game” the Cherries boss added, “they’re a good counter attacking team”.
When asked about his side keeping a clean sheet for the first time this season, Howe remarked that the Cherries have made defensive improvements in recent weeks.
“The last two games for me we’ve made improvements. Their keeper wasn’t overly worked which is disappointing from our perspective.”
“The expectation was to get a home win…but it’s never that easy. They’re a tough nut to crack.”
The draw sees Bournemouth move up a place in the Premier League table, leap frogging West Ham who fell to a 2-0 defeat at Everton in the lunch time kick off.
Norwich meanwhile remain in 19th position, just three points clear of rock bottom Watford.
