CHERRIES boss Eddie Howe said there would be no onus on Asmir Begovic to bounce back as an individual – and insisted the whole team needed to learn from the 2-2 draw against Newcastle United.

The Bosnian goalkeeper was partially culpable as the Magpies took a 2-0 lead into the break at Vitality Stadium last Saturday courtesy of Dwight Gayle's double.

First the frontman smuggled past Begovic and backheeled into the net after the stopper had attempted to cut out Matt Ritchie's low centre with his feet.

And former Chelsea and Stoke star Begovic then allowed Ayoze Perez's driven cross to flash between him and the near post, allowing Gayle to gleefully tap home.

It took goals inside the final 10 minutes from substitute Adam Smith and Dan Gosling to rescue what could prove a key point for Cherries in their battle to stay in the Premier League.

Asked how Begovic had responded, Howe said: "Asmir is the type of character who is very level headed and very serious with his training work. I've seen no change in him, he's been absolutely fine.

"Any mistake by goalkeepers gets highlighted but he has been a big player for us this season. He has had really good command of his box, has been very good on crosses and has made a number of key saves.

"We know the importance of him and back him 100 per cent.

"We have the type of mentality where we all need to bounce back, not Asmir. It's down to the team. We were disappointed with the first 70 minutes of the game and we all need to take accountability for that.

"We were disappointed with the Huddersfield display and parts of the Newcastle performance but the end was pleasing and I think that's what we had to take from the match.

"The last part of the game was much more like ourselves, much more like we want to be. It's about finding that consistency, finding that level."

Cherries take on Leicester City at King Power Stadium tomorrow (3pm), the Foxes hoping to arrest a run of four league games without a win.

Leicester's only goalscorer in those fixtures was England frontman Jamie Vardy.

Howe added: "You look at the quality of Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and Marc Albrighton. Whoever they play behind Vardy – be that Shinji Okazaki or Demarai Gray – they have some good players so we know it will be a tough game.

"Okazaki is a key player for them, a real 100 per cent player who works incredibly hard for the team.

"We've had some really good games against Leicester and they have always been tight games. There has been a low margin for error and they have been low-scoring encounters.

"We've managed to nick a result here and there and there have been a few draws."
