BOSS Eddie Howe credited assistant Jason Tindall after Cherries’ innovative set piece routine paid dividends – despite his side falling to a 2-1 defeat at Newcastle.

A slick move from a corner saw Ryan Fraser play the ball to Joshua King, with the Norwegian offering a return pass.

Scotland international Fraser then slid in Harry Wilson to slot home and ensure the training ground routine paid off in the 14th minute.

But goals from Newcastle's DeAndre Yedlin and Ciaran Clark turned the game on its head to condemn Cherries to their fourth league loss of the campaign.

Asked about his side’s opener, Howe said: "I have to give Jason Tindall a lot of credit for the work he does with set plays, the players and the routines we have.

“We have always prided ourselves on being innovate from those positions and it was really, really well planned but brilliantly executed by the players and a great finish from Harry.”

Wilson now has four goals in 11 games for Cherries, having joined on a season-long loan from Liverpool in the summer.

Howe’s men have taken 16 points from 12 league fixtures heading into the November international break.

The Dorset club’s next game is at home to Wolves on Saturday, November 23.
