Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe: Frustrating, but credit to Leicester

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe was left frustrated after their 1-1 draw with Leicester City.

Riyad Mahrez's 97th minute freekick snatched a win away from the Cherries, who had been leading through Joshua King.

"I thought we had to show a different side to our normal game," Howe said.

"We really did dig in, defend a lot of balls into the box and our defensive mindset was excellent.

"The goalkeeper and defenders put their bodies on the line, we weathered a mini storm but I thought we'd be OK. A moment of magic killed us at the end."

Howe continued: "It's a frustration not to get over the line, but it wasn't to be, credit to Leicester.

"We could have had a second penalty earlier in the second half but it wasn't be, but from then on we defended our goal really well.

"Credit to the moment that Mahrez produced, in my mind I'm analysing the wall, giving away the free-kick in the first place and those thoughts are flashing through my mind at the time.

"It's the last kick of the game and it's a great strike. We were good value for the win but it wasn't to be today."
