Cherries: Sky Blues punish missed chances

Bournemouth Echo: MISSED CHANCES: Cherries striker Matt Tubbs MISSED CHANCES: Cherries striker Matt Tubbs

BOSS Eddie Howe was tonight left to rue a “harsh” defeat after missed opportunities had proved costly for promotion-chasing Cherries.

The Dean Court outfit produced an improved performance – particularly during a bright and inventive first half – but failed to make the most of a series of early chances.

Recalled striker Matt Tubbs was denied by a fine save before Lewis Grabban and Tubbs were both unable to hit the target when clean through on goal.

After weathering the storm, play-off contenders Coventry punished Cherries’ profligacy when ace marksman Leon Clarke lashed them into the lead against the run of play.

Cherries continued to dominate possession after the break but there was no way past City keeper Joe Murphy.

And the hosts were condemned to a third successive League One defeat – which saw them drop out of the play-off zone – when Sky Blues captain Carl Baker coolly converted a late penalty.

Howe told the Daily Echo: “It was a harsh one for us. I thought the lads were excellent for the majority of the game.

“We created a number of chances early in the game and really wanted to take one of those when we were well on top. It was one of those days when we got hit on the counter with a sucker-punch.

“We put a lot of balls into their box in the second half, asked a lot of questions and the ball never fell for us. The pleasing thing in terms of the reaction from Saturday is that we created a lot of chances.”

Manager Howe made three changes after the 1-0 loss against Sheffield United as Tubbs replaced Brett Pitman up front, with Josh McQuoid and Wes Fogden given the nod on the flanks. Matt Ritchie switched to left-back, with injured Marc Pugh and Brighton loanee Marcos Painter missing out.

The match stopped almost before it had even started when Coventry defender Carl Dickinson required lengthy treatment to a suspected broken nose following an aerial collision with Fogden.

Once play finally resumed with the bloodied Dickinson continuing, Cherries looked revitalised.

Playing with width, the hosts were threatening virtually every time they went forward in an exciting opening.

After City skipper Baker had forced a routine save from Shwan Jalal, opposing keeper Murphy produced a sharp one-handed parry to repel Tubbs’s sweet volley after a powerful Ritchie cross.

Cherries maintained the high tempo and Murphy should have been tested when Grabban was found by Fogden’s clever header, but the leading scorer fired high and wide from eight yards.

Frontman Grabban was then denied by a fine defensive block after he had been sent clear following a surging run and precision pass from Eunan O’Kane.

The slick speed of Cherries’ play was causing problems for Coventry and Howe’s men should have been rewarded on 20 minutes, only for Tubbs to shoot agonisingly wide after latching on to Dickinson’s gift of a headed backpass.

Below par against Preston and thwarted by Sheffield United in back-to-back losses, Cherries looked far better for Howe’s changes, with Ritchie, McQuoid and Fogden all catching the eye in wide areas.

But for all their promising work, they still had nothing to show for it.

It took an exceptional save from Jalal to prevent Coventry bagging a classic goal against the run of play when Franck Moussa unleashed a 15-yard rocket.

But Jalal was powerless to stop the Sky Blues edging ahead in first-half stoppage time. Battling for a long ball, strong City striker Clarke fended off Steve Cook before hammering the visitors into a surprise lead.

With it all to do after the break, Cherries started on the front foot and the impressive Ritchie’s low cutback forced a desperate defensive clearance.

Jalal was again sharp when diving low to hold a fierce drive from Clarke, who had been picked out by Baker.

Arter fired over following good work by McQuoid before Howe decided to refresh his attack, introducing Pitman and Ryan Fraser in a bid to get back in the game.

Grabban saw a goalbound effort well blocked by James Bailey before McQuoid’s swerving hit from the rebound flew wide. Fraser, cutting in from the right, was next to try his luck but he shot straight at Murphy.

With his final throw of the dice, Howe called on veteran targetman Steve Fletcher.

But Cherries’ big task became mountainous when the Sky Blues doubled their advantage six minutes from time. Referee Simon Hooper had no hesitation in pointing to the spot after David Bell’s cross had appeared to hit Grabban’s hand, with City skipper Baker doing the rest with a cool penalty.

Pitman saw an effort hacked off the line as Cherries pressed late on but there was no way back as Coventry defended resolutely and saw out time.

Cherries: (4-4-2) Jalal 6.5; Francis 6, Cook 6, Seaborne 6, Ritchie 8*; Fogden 7.5 (Fraser, 72), Arter 6, O’Kane 7.5, McQuoid 7 (Fletcher, 80); Grabban 6, Tubbs 6.5 (Pitman, 72). Unused subs: Partington, Hughes, MacDonald, Allsop (g/k).

Are you a complete prat, or just practising??? Much improved performance, shame we couldn't take our chances, we'd of murdered them. As for Tubbs, he wasn't the only player to miss chances, and besides he's more used to warming the bench, the guy needs game time!! UTCIAD

Thought we we were excellent until the first goal went in, lively play with eddie's team changes paying off. Really should have established a two/three goal lead. Once again defensive hesitancy gave them a goal: with Elphick and Daniels neither Cov/Blades would have got their opening goals. second was a freak. I was encouraged tonight but long term we need to get a more physical presence up front: kitson and clarke have shown what we are missing in these home defeats

Improved and good performance for part of the night.
Blaming Tubbs is arse no one looked like scoring. Every thing went left nobody looked to the right Second half Mcquoid was lazy and gutless 5050 balls had no interest and to take Foggy off who might not be the most gifted but what he does give you effort and tempo befor Mclazy was stupid. Seabourne is useless thinner version of Addison ponderus to many touches no passion no drive. and good to see Pitman is back to the old Pitman thought he was going to cry when Arter wouldnt let him take the freekick. Eddie has let the best forwards leave the club Pitman record 7 goals 5 against Crewe and 3 pens not sintilating is it. not truely concerned think we will be there or abouts at end of season creating but now needs to stop favourites and put on the guys that will put in a shift. and last but not least how can a forward playing in Dutch prem league not be seen to be good enough fit enough to oust Fletch from bench laughable truely laughable.

Well he won't be playing the next 2 games, due to his lack of discipline. As one of the posts says above, the absence of key players, in particular Elphick and Daniels, is costing us dear. Tommy is the foundation-stone of the team, as well as the leader. Ryan Lowe has a lot to answer for. Nonetheless, even after 3 straight defeats, we're still only 4 points from the top, which just goes to show that no-one seems capable at the moment of picking up the baton and running with it. Keep the faith, folks. It will come good! Just had to be Orient away next though, didn't it.

In the last 3 weeks there has been no less than 5 different leaders of L1 which proves how tight things are. This bad run surely has to end soon, hopefully at Orient on saturday. KEEP THE FAITH.!!!!.

...Clarke fended off Steve Cook?...from what I saw it was a complete mental breakdown between Cook and Seabourne about who should clear the ball...Clarke took advantage and finished sublimely...the sort of finish that our striker struggled to produce. For me Grabban should have been subbed early in the second half and Brett got on sooner, Lewis had a stinker along with a few others and that is why we lost Coventry were an ordinary side but defended resolutely and although Ritchie produced some great crosses most othe time our strikers were too slow or inept to connect.

Spot on, Ryan Lowe is a major culprit in this recent run, totally upset the back four. Daniels out also an issue but Seabourne was capably filling in at left back.

Shminto, you predicted 2-2, so wrong again!

Yeah, drop Tubbs, he has had a really good run in the side after all!!!!

Get in a Leon Clarke type player, what you mean like Wes Thomas?!

Still well in the mix, tough game on Saturday, where we are now not expected to win, so lets get a surprise 3 points and get back on the winning trail.

We are allowed a blip like this, we have no god given right to win every game.

I think Eddie will put a stop to the poor run on Sat, with the re-introduction of Hughesy to the side to solidify our recent shakey defending. Allowing Eunan and McDonald to get forward (I read that Arter has now got a 2 match ban).

For me tonight Grabban should have been off instead of Tubbs. you could see that after he went down and fell on his shoulder he was moving awkwardly, and every time a sub was made he looked over to the board as if willing it to be number 22.

Also thought that Wes Fogden had a great game, he works so hard and whilst he might not be as exciting as some of our other wide men what you get from him is 100% every time. I reckon that was Matt Richies best game for us thus far and felt that his link up play on the left with McQuoid was more promosing than when he's played with Pugh. Still, id like to see him in a more advanced role, potentially even in behind the strikers with licence to shoot on goal freely as I feel we arent doing that enough at the moment.

I'd consider playing hughest at left back to free Matt up, he might not be the quickest but he is solid and the sort of player we need on the pitch to lead the lads at the moment.

I back us for 3 points on Sat! Up the cherries!

Some of the comments on here amaze me. I can understand Eddie wanting to try and pick some positives out of that mess, but the performance overall can only be described as unacceptable.

We started each half fairly brightly, but in the end were turned over by an average side who only put up an average performance. Our only bright performer was Matt Ritchie who whilst playing at left back was our only real offensive threat. Ritchie was far and away the best player on the pitch. Tubbs is clearly not up to standard at this end of L1 and McQuoid really didn't look that interested throughout.

The defending for their first goal was unacceptable, two centre backs failed to take responsibility for the striker and neither got a challenge in. The handball was unlucky, but that's the way it goes.

Surely, we can find someone in the squad that can cover at left back and let Matt Ritchie play further up the field? He's wasted in defence.

A reality check all round, I'm afraid. We're just lucky that results didn't go too badly against us overall last night.

Some of the comments on here amaze me. I can understand Eddie wanting to try and pick some positives out of that mess, but the performance overall can only be described as unacceptable.

Our only bright performer was Matt Ritchie who whilst playing at left back was our only real offensive threat. Ritchie was far and away the best player on the pitch. Tubbs is clearly not up to standard at this end of L1 and McQuoid really didn't look that interested throughout. The defending for their first goal was unacceptable, two centre backs failed to take responsibility for the striker and neither got a challenge in.

I agree with you about Tubbs. I have said many times he is not League One material.

It is puzzling that many people cannot see it. Sell to the highest bidder.

From the posts on the Adver, it appears your lot turned in a pretty grim performance last night. Very, very strange, this division this season. Looks like Brentford to finish top then!

I left early last night, it was obvious we would lose. Several on here seem to think if we had Daniels and Elphick back we would still be winning?
We might be letting less goals in but last night our problem was up front.!

Tubbs is League 2 and he showed it last night. Eddie Howe was right about him a few years ago.

Whats wrong with people crying for Demouge to come back when he wasnt good enough when he was here?

Whats happened to Grabbin cos lately he s rubbish!

Who mentioned Wes ( barn door) Thomas, Were you at the Wigan match cos he was worse than Tubbs!

Richie was man of the match for me.
I think Frazer will be quite special in the future.

We need a Striker on loan and we need one fast or say goodbye to the play offs.

I will be there on Saturday, with 1400 other AFCB but if its more of the same then I am not blind like others on here, if itsa loss then the season is over of us. At least I wont have to struggle to buy a ticket anymore

Not too impressed last night thought we were a bit lightweight Lets not panic but i think a few questions need answering. Why wasnt MacDonald playing is he not fit.Why havent we a got a big mobile target man somewhere in the squad.Whats the latest on all our injuries will some of them be back soon? Couldnt someone at the Echo give Eddie a ring and ask him.I know its only dreaming but oh to have Willo at the back for the rest of the season in his prime of course.Still lets have 3pts at Orient on Saturday stranger things have happened

It was 100 times better than Saturday, but...... We just don't get men forward. Often we only had one or two players in the box when attacking. We are painfully slow to get up the pitch. There was some excellent football..... But we often don't stand up in challenges, far too easily brushed aside. Playing with wingers is fine but we don't have any players that are dominant in the air when we attack. We only won it in the air when Fletch came on.

Positives from last night were Fogden, Ritchie (he really is a class above) and yes I will say Tubbs. He looked a lot sharper and held the ball up really well, unlike Brett when he came on.

We at least had some shots which is a bonus compared to Saturday, but too many times the final ball was wrong, just hit rather than looking for a player.

Negatives were obviously no points, no goals and no clean sheet. We need to get the defence sorted again and build from there.

McQuoid had a mare as far as I am concerned as well. No passion, lack of effort and not strong enough.

Coventry although dangerous up front, were pretty ordinary and a couple of months ago we would have hammered them.

All teams are now going to play like this at DC so we must take chances when they arise and play more intelligently.

We must get at least a point on Saturday to stop the rot and get things going again.

Although we don't always see eye to eye, you are right in this case.

We are really missing Elphick in the centre.

Daniels as well to some extent but in Ritchie we have a worthy replacement, but would obviously be preferred on the wing.

The next couple of games are massive and we need to start getting back to basics, especially at the back. A clean sheet for starters would be good.

Hey Frankie please don't encourage him he is just protecting his true feelings by suppressing them behind the facade that appears he doesn't care, classic only child syndrome there is a whole case book with this individual.
I doubt very much whether he braved the cold air last night either ?

It is quite sad actually but nevertheless entertaining for most of us.

Sorry Eddie but the midfield selection was poor from the start last night. Three light weights (Eunan, Harry & Wes), when we clearly need a battler such as MacDonald or Hughes.
Having hit the top of the league all clubs coming to DC are shutting up shop with 8 in the penalty box and trying to rough us up.
I'm tired of all Josh knocking. He is doing well and just lacks that confidence to shoot when he has a chance, then we'll see him back to the form he was in before Millwall ruined him. Eddie will get him back to his best.
As for the strikers....for heavens sake, someone try a shot!!!
We really miss Tommy and Charlie. As for Simon Francis - put the ball IN FRONT of the forwards not behind - jeez man, can't you understand? Ask Matt Ritchie how to do it....!

when a team goes of the boil, losing becomes as much a habit as winning, the players have to step up to the mark and prove they have the strength and desire to win these games, they do not help themselves by the endless stream of penalties we have conceded this season, and I would question why with 6 minutes to go needing a goal to gain apoint our main striker was in our own penalty area, and how much longer is Eddie Howe going to acept the diciplinary record of Harry Arter, good players are of little use if sat in the stands on suspension, Management and players have to improve or they run the risk of becoming yet another Bournemouth team who have bottled it at the last moment, I am sure you have the ability, you do not need to come into the press and tell us what you are going to do, just do it and all will be fine

We are very fickle supporters, Pompy fans have nothing to shout about at all, and put us to shame when they came to us, we should be getting behind the boys even more.
It hasnt been easy on the eye the last few games, in fact I think last game we played really well was against Wigan.
And when the injured players return that will help.
But we must encourage, and cheer more at home games.

As I've said many times before we are missing a goalscorer or 2. The current choices are simply not good enough.

If we got into the playoffs we don't have the cutting edge to break down the other top teams, it's as simple as that..

Have to agree with several posts here. McQuoid, was scared to win the ball in the challenge and showed no passion. Why were the midfielders not busting a gut to get into the box when going forward?
We need another option up front, big strong lad, with a bit of pace, sadly not Fletch.
The one thing that amazed me most was when we brought Fraser on why did we not give him the ball? The one time he got the ball in the box he produced a quick snapshot. What can he do when we give him the ball?
Things could have been much worse and there still is a long way to go.
I'm on at 16/1 for promotion and looking forward to my pay out in May.

We need another option up front, big strong lad, with a bit of pace, sadly not Fletch. The one thing that amazed me most was when we brought Fraser on why did we not give him the ball? The one time he got the ball in the box he produced a quick snapshot. What can he do when we give him the ball? Things could have been much worse and there still is a long way to go. I'm on at 16/1 for promotion and looking forward to my pay out in May. Judaas

Thanks for the offer but Matt Ritchie is really quite good so the price is a cool £2m! Does that sound familiar???
Hope our wobble stops before yours ;-) UTC!
Ritchie looks a possible premiership player , but at times there were 3 players messing about crossing to 1 or 2 players in the middle . with Richies quality those players should be in the middle ready for the cross / same at the corners !

I left early last night, it was obvious we would lose. Several on here seem to think if we had Daniels and Elphick back we would still be winning?
We might be letting less goals in but last night our problem was up front.!

Tubbs is League 2 and he showed it last night. Eddie Howe was right about him a few years ago.

Whats wrong with people crying for Demouge to come back when he wasnt good enough when he was here?

Whats happened to Grabbin cos lately he s rubbish!

Who mentioned Wes ( barn door) Thomas, Were you at the Wigan match cos he was worse than Tubbs!

Richie was man of the match for me.
I think Frazer will be quite special in the future.

We need a Striker on loan and we need one fast or say goodbye to the play offs.

I will be there on Saturday, with 1400 other AFCB but if its more of the same then I am not blind like others on here, if itsa loss then the season is over of us. At least I wont have to struggle to buy a ticket anymore
Think our challenge was made harder by letting Sheffield and Coventry take a first half lead, thereafter they sat back to hit us on the break. Also the value of Daniels is pace down the wing. I do believe a kitson/Clarke type player is needed upfront though

As mentioned before a few more shots from the strikers would not go amiss, we can't walk it into the net all the time.
Good points: some quick pass and move play/our speed and mobility/Matt Ritchie/Ryan Fraser (who look like he doesn't mind taking a shot!!!). Disapointed with the final result but still looking forward to Orient where we pick it up again. UTC!

lockandload (whoever he/she is) writes "I left early last night, it was obvious we would lose". What an appalling, spoilt-brat attitude. At the moment we're neither clicking into top gear nor getting the rub of the green, but it's at times like these that true supporters stick with it and give the team a bit of encouragement; you have to experience the lows to appreciate the highs. The players gave it everything last night, which is really all you can ask; the true disappointment for me was not the result (these things happen, get over it) but the mass exodus from the exec seats in particular as soon as the penalty went in. If getting the early bus or avoiding the car park queues is more important than staying on for a few minutes to applaud 90 minutes of honest endeavour and no little skill, then I'm not sure the kneejerk reactors even deserve Championship football.

Overall not a bad performance. Why do they persist with the short corner? Admittedly a high cross won't be met but put it in low one and there is a chance of one of ours or theirs knocking it in. Need to be a bit more direct at times, too much passing ball backwards and sidewards instead of forward. too many passes going astray, look up before passing.

I am a He by the way. I left early like the other 2000+. I am not going to get in a slagging match about whose the biggest supporter here because we are all supporters. I have never being called a spoilt brat before. lol , but after watching us lose against Sheffield and then watch an inferior Coventry run all over us last night I walked instead of winding myself up anymore. If only Fletcher was a few years younger cos when he came on he broke them up a little.
P.S this spoilt brat has his tickets for Leyton Orient ..have you or doesnt your support go that far?
lol

I go for my own entertainment. If I'm not being entertained, I leave early. If I find myself consistently leaving early, I stop going for a bit. In particular in the early and late season, when there is so much more you can be doing on a Saturday, or Tuesday evening after work. I have been to every home game this year and many away, and bar the second half performance against Franchise (against 10 men), I haven't been enjoying what I have been seeing. So. I've stopped going. I only want the good times. Life is depressing enough without watching your team peform badly. Regards.

Got to agree with this, what must the players feel like when they see loads of people leaving in their peripheral vision when trying to get something out of the back-end of a game. Had we only have been one goal down it really could have made a difference.
Good to see Eddie come over and applaud the supporters that remained after the whistle.

Perfectly summarises the 'plastic fan' attitude.

Now I welcome the plastics as I would rather see a full stadium than a half empty one, but...... could we maybe have a 'plastic fans' only stand so the 4500-5000 loyal fans who go and support come what may can watch the whole game without being disturbed by those that want to leave early and not see the game out until the bitter end?

'Is there a fire alarm?' and 'We can see you sneaking out' could then be sang at each home game to the plastic stand between 80 minutes and full time.

First I was a spoilt brat and now I am a plastic because I left 3 minutes before the end. I love it.

Theres a lot of teenagers on here today

I left because I was **** off with Tubbs/Grabbin and their complete lack of success. I was **** off with the dream of going up is starting to fade.
I was **** off that Eddie Howe didnt seem to have a plan B.
I was **** off that Fletcher could have really broken them up if he was 5 years younger.

Finally I was **** off that I had a fat smelly bloke overlapping onto my seat.

But Hey, I will be there for the next home match as well as Leyton away on Saturday.

P.S I was there when we went down to 4000 home supporters watching the disaster called Groves/Brookes but I am a plastic

If getting the early bus or avoiding the car park queues is more important than staying on for a few minutes to applaud 90 minutes of honest endeavour and no little skill, then I'm not sure the kneejerk reactors even deserve Championship football.
I go for my own entertainment. If I'm not being entertained, I leave early. If I find myself consistently leaving early, I stop going for a bit. In particular in the early and late season, when there is so much more you can be doing on a Saturday, or Tuesday evening after work. I have been to every home game this year and many away, and bar the second half performance against Franchise (against 10 men), I haven't been enjoying what I have been seeing. So. I've stopped going. I only want the good times. Life is depressing enough without watching your team peform badly. Regards.
Perfectly summarises the 'plastic fan' attitude.

Now I welcome the plastics as I would rather see a full stadium than a half empty one, but...... could we maybe have a 'plastic fans' only stand so the 4500-5000 loyal fans who go and support come what may can watch the whole game without being disturbed by those that want to leave early and not see the game out until the bitter end?

'Is there a fire alarm?' and 'We can see you sneaking out' could then be sang at each home game to the plastic stand between 80 minutes and full time.
get real every club has plastic fans and tell me which club would see all the fans stay to the very end when 2-0 down with 5 mins left?

Chill out lockandload, just a bit of banter.

Not aimed at you anyhow, but the User with the hilarious User name.

I was tempted to leave early as well but my mate was driving and he wouldn't leave, even though he had the hump as well.

So we stayed to the bitter end and gave the players some appaluse for their efforts.

yes i remember those games we were useless, Macdonald is back now but we dont use him in midfield in front of the back four, he was the machine of the side, when he got injured we went down a gear, and Howe has a short memory it seems. change back to the old set up we have a lot of better players now.

The Renegade Master says...

The downturn in form has corresponded with Daniels and Elphick missing from the defence. It's affected the confidence of the whole side and boy has it shown in the last three games. Three defeats and no goals scored has taken us from top of the league to seventh place.
This blip will hopefully come to an end against Orient on Saturday where nothing but a convincing win is going to put our season back on track. Another poor performance and defeat will turn a blip into a full blown crisis which if not dealt with quickly could see the good work after Groves' exit count for nothing. Not even a play off place.

HEIGHT,STRENGTH AND MUSCLE are all the characteristics missing from Eddie's team that we desperatley need in attack and midfield. Our finishing of late is poor and goals from corners non existant more effort needed on the training ground and get a big target man and hard tackling midfielder in on loan we will not make playoffs else.

I think Smhinto and Jontee are one and the same. How many times does a Jontee comment follow a Smhinto comment.....typing styles similar too.

I have a hunch that Smhinto does not write for Stoke Sentinel.....more likely Manic Depressives Weekly!!!

McDonald needs to replace the very average Arter. McDonald is quality and allows O'Kane to flourish. Tubbs linked well with Grabbon and with a run of games we will see the goals flow. All is not lost, last night was miles better than Saturday. Hope Elphrick gets back soon, we need his leadership. Up the cherries!

It hasnt been easy on the eye the last few games, in fact I think last game we played really well was against Wigan.
And when the injured players return that will help.
But we must encourage, and cheer more at home games.
Not enough passion inside the ground but don't help wen stewards chuck fans out for nothing!!!

We might be letting less goals in but last night our problem was up front.!

Tubbs is League 2 and he showed it last night. Eddie Howe was right about him a few years ago.

Whats wrong with people crying for Demouge to come back when he wasnt good enough when he was here?

Whats happened to Grabbin cos lately he s rubbish!

Who mentioned Wes ( barn door) Thomas, Were you at the Wigan match cos he was worse than Tubbs!

Richie was man of the match for me.
I think Frazer will be quite special in the future.

We need a Striker on loan and we need one fast or say goodbye to the play offs.

I will be there on Saturday, with 1400 other AFCB but if its more of the same then I am not blind like others on here, if itsa loss then the season is over of us. At least I wont have to struggle to buy a ticket anymore
Big difference in last nights game, Clarke just patroled a 20 meter area up front until he took his gifted chance, our strikers are running all over the place, out wide down the middle, all back for corners, just burn up energy stuff, we need a big man like that Clark/kitson sort, Fletch is not the answer, too much fouling in the time he was on the pitch,

Well no Harry Arter for two games due to his ten yellows, half of them for gobbing off at referees, so I would like to see Mac back up at Orient on Sat, but guess it will be ol pal Hughes ? hear Grabbs has damaged his shoulder too, Desperate for three points now just to get some confidence back, Only seven thousand plus last night, the fickle fans are drifting away again, guess theyve seen it all too often in the past !!!
