AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe believes his side were good enough to pick up all three points against Brentford.

Speaking to the club's official website after the goalless draw with Brentford yesterday - Howe praised his side's attitude and defensive effort against an in-form Brentford side.

"I was pleased with the point but more pleased with the performance" explained Howe.

"We had some great chances in the second half and we are kicking ourselves that we didn't take one of them.

"I was so pleased with the lads' attitude and their commitment to the cause by all the players and we keep the unbeaten run going. As a group, the spirit in the camp is evident."

The Cherries have not lost in their last sixteen games, and are just outside the playoff places - level on points with both the MK Dons and Swindon Town.

The Dorset side face a huge challenge against Premier League side Wigan Athletic on Saturday in the third round of the FA Cup.

"Defensively the lads are performing very well, and even from an attacking perspective" added Howe.

"As long as we are still creating chances, we will continue to win games."
