Time for some more photos.
Both sides still making the best of it though.

In contrast, Cherries are three unbeaten in the league at Dean Court.
Fixtures against Yeovil (W3-0), Ipswich (D1-1) and Watford (D1-1) along with wins at Reading (2-1) and Sheffield Wednesday (2-1) have seen Eddie Howe's men stabilise in the Championship.
13th-placed Huddersfield are three points and three points ahead of Cherries in the Championship table.
Terriers have failed to win any of their past four away games in the league, their last success coming at Bolton (1-0) at the start of December.
Fixtures at Ipswich (L1-2), Brighton (D0-0), Burnley (L2-3) and QPR (L1-2) have yielded just a solitary point.
