BOSS Mark Hughes felt Southampton had created the better chances during their 0-0 draw with Cherries yesterday.

Stuart Armstrong and Manolo Gabbiadini were both guilty of bad misses as Saints drew a blank in the Premier League for the fourth game in succession.

Asked if he had been happy with the performance, Hughes said: "Very much so. We were not pleased with the one point because I thought we deserved more than that.

"I thought in terms of clear-cut chances, ours were more clear-cut and we had more potential to convert. But, in the end, it was a good performance.

"We came to Bournemouth, who are absolutely flying at the moment and putting a lot of teams to the sword, with a lot of attacking play.

"They have power and pace but we came here with a plan and really negated their threat all afternoon.

"They never really had any significant periods of momentum. They may have had a little bit of a go towards the end of the game but, for the most part, we dealt with everything that they threw at us and were always a problem going the other way for them.

"I felt the performance deserved three points but we will take the point because it's a difficult place to come."
