Eddie Howe thinks AFC Bournemouth will bounce back from out of character defeat
AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has called on his team to react positively to an out of character display against Walsall on Saturday.
The Cherries manager suffered his first League One defeat since taking over the reigns in October but believes it was a one-off.
"We didn't show our true colours" admitted Howe, speaking to the club's official website.
"The goals we conceded were disappointing and it was an out of character performance.

"It was difficult to watch because I know we are a lot better than that.
"We now have to make sure it was a one off and go again - what I am looking for now is a reaction."
The Cherries have the chance to get back to winning ways when they visit Hartlepool tomorrow night.
"I won't let what happened at Walsall blight all the good things we have done" added Howe.
"What we have to make sure is that the principles and ethics we work towards are upheld. If they are not then you have to be disappointed and work out why.
"On the back of any poor performance there is always reasons. We now have to find those reasons and put it right."
