EDDIE Howe admitted defeat at Newcastle left Cherries "hugely frustrated and disappointed" after he watched his side squander a first-half lead.

Harry Wilson opened the scoring for Howe's side in the 14th minute when the loanee swept home a slick set-play routine following a sharp exchange between Ryan Fraser and Joshua King.

However, goals either side of half-time from DeAndre Yedlin and Ciaran Clark secured victory for the Magpies.

Asked if he thought Cherries should have gone home with at least a point, Howe said: "Yes, we're hugely frustrated and disappointed with that.

"We started the game so well. We created a number of chances and we looked in a really good place. We scored a good goal but then we made some uncharacteristic errors and just gave Newcastle the encouragement they needed to get back into the match."

He added: "We made some uncharacteristic mistakes with the ball in a time when we were dominating the game and when you give Newcastle transitions with the attacking players that they have, with the pace they have in their team, that is a dangerous thing to do and from that point it just gave them confidence that got the crowd into the game.

"I think that is a huge frustration from our perspective because we were dominant for that opening spell of the half and really we should have been looking to try and get that second goal that maybe we needed."

Howe's charges battled in search of an equaliser but failed to test Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dúbravka.

In second-half stoppage time, King squandered Cherries' best chance to snatch a point.

The Norwegian international was unable to direct his close-range header on target.

Discussing the missed opportunity at the death, Howe said: "It is difficult with the different angles you get.

"I have got a difficult angle but I thought Josh had a really good chance to score there and unfortunately it goes the wrong side of the post."

Defeat left Cherries seventh in the Premier League table, with 16 points from 12 matches.
