JUBILANT boss Eddie Howe was delighted to have rewarded travelling supporters by ending Cherries’ barren run on the road.

The Dorset club recorded their first away win since October when they eased to a 2-0 success against Huddersfield on Saturday.

Some 788 Cherries fans were present to see Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser find the net against the bottom-of-the-table Terriers.

Reflecting on victory, Howe said: “We needed it. Our away form has not been very good. I really felt for our supporters at times during the run we were on.

“That’s why I’m so pleased for them today. They have made a long journey up and no doubt left at a very early time but they have been rewarded with a really good performance.

“We were very clinical and looked good in attack and solid in defence, so it’s been a good day.”

On his return from injury, Wilson opened the scoring following a terrific counter-attacking move which involved David Brooks and Fraser.

“That is the kind of goal we were scoring on a regular basis early in the season,” said Howe.

“Of course, the team has been hit a bit with injuries and we have missed that fluency. But it was great to see it back today."
