O'Driscoll praises resolve
Bournemouth manager Sean O'Driscoll admitted the scoreline flattered his side after they ran out 3-0 winners over Swansea.

Two late goals from the penalty spot helped the Cherries move into third place.

"We knew it would be difficult, but we feel if we can keep clean sheets we're a threat up front," O'Driscoll said.

"Everybody was off the pace a little bit but we stuck at it, and our resolve and determination was great."

But the win was soured by an injury to Karl Broadhurst, who had to be replaced at half-time.

"Karl Broadhurst may have dislocated his shoulder. We'll just have to see how bad it is," O'Driscoll added.

Opposite number Brian Flynn agreed that Swansea were unlucky to have been beaten by three clear goals.

He said: "After our first-half performance, I felt we could go on and get a result, but we didn't reproduce that performance in the second half.

"We rode the storm and Roger Freestone made a couple of good saves.

"But we only created one real chance in the second half at 1-0. Marc (Richards) couldn't get the finishing touch on it, and we paid for it."
