DOMINIC Solanke admitted Cherries "can't really concede late goals" like they did at Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Solanke's deflected first-half strike looked like it would be enough for Cherries to take all three points at the Riverside, until Marcus Browne headed in from close range nine minutes from time to earn the hosts a 1-1 draw.

"I wouldn't say it was the most enjoyable game, quite scrappy," Solanke told the Daily Echo.

"But sometimes they're the sort of games you have to be involved in and you have to try and match them physically and I think for the majority of the game we did that. But we can't really concede late goals like that.

"Especially when I think we fought so well for the majority of the game and I think they're the sort of games you just have to see out."

Solanke's first goal of the campaign came when he neatly flicked a low Arnaut Danjuma corner goalwards.

Defender Marvin Johnson then inadvertently turned it in at the near post, but the Cherries striker insists it was not an own goal.

"No, mine of course! I think it was going on target," Solanke said.

"I saw a big space at the front post and I kind of gave Arnie the shout and he realised that, so it was good ball from him and a nice flick.

"It wasn't something we worked on to be honest. I think the way they set up for the corners, there was a big space at the front post and credit to him for seeing that but it was a good ball and a good flick from me."
