Eddie Howe hails the impact made by his subs to help Bournemouth recover from two goals down and draw 2-2 against Newcastle United.

The Magpies let their 2-0 lead at half time, thanks to a double from Dwight Gayle, slip as the Cherries netted two goals in the last 10 minutes to rescue a point at the Vitality Stadium and send the visitors away bitterly disappointed after their impressive first 45 minutes.

Cherries manager Eddie Howe said he was satisfied with the point, adding: "It was a unusual afternoon". I'm not saying that Bournemouth aren't playing well or aren't a good side, but just that [2.2] seems short, especially against a Newcastle team that's quite tough to beat.

"You need everyone to be focused not feel sorry for themselves and credit to players for that so well".

"I don't think that we switched off, it's just lack of concentration in a couple of situations that we could do better". Newcastle dropped to 15th in the 20-team league and is only two points from the relegation zone.

"He could give us something different, but we think we have enough quality to cope".

"Adam Smith is an excellent full-back and I thought he did very well down that left-half side". For the first ten minutes I thought we were going to produce a good performance, and the goals were probably the turning point. Now there is genuine hope that a return to the second tier can be avoided, and a run of five points from the last three games has given the Magpies a tiny bit of breathing space in what is a fierce battle to avoid relegation.

"We had a couple of chances to score the third goal and we made two mistakes and we conceded two goals and at the end they were pushing with corners and crosses, it was very hard for us. It looked like a long way back for us but we found something, we changed system and players with the subs".
