JASON Tindall admitted he was disappointed with the lack of chances Cherries created against Luton.

The contest at Kenilworth Road finished goalless with the home keeper James Shea not seriously worked until a late Rodrigo Riquelme shot, which he got down to comfortably.

At the other end Asmir Begovic produced two vital stops, one in each half from Danny Hylton and Sam Nombe.

Asked if he was satisfied with the point, boss Tindall said: "Obviously we came here to get three points. That was our aim before the game and it’s a difficult place to come.

"The pitch is probably the worst we’ve played on this season and it wasn’t ideal and they make it very difficult for the opposition.

"As we’ve seen, they’re a good side at home. They’ve had some really good results against some strong sides so to come here and keep another clean sheet, that’s five on the bounce. I’m delighted with that.

"Although we wanted more, we’ll take the point, we dust ourselves down and we move on."

Tindall added: "Would I have liked to have created more chances and scored goals and been more of an attacking threat here today? Yeah, for sure, most definitely.

"But they changed their system, they went five at the back which is quite unusual for them to do, especially at home and you could see they put a lot of balls in the channels. Every time it dropped down they kept it as far away from their goal as possible which makes it a lot more difficult.

"Full credit to them for that and for the way they lined up, but the flip side of it I would’ve liked to have been better in the attacking third and created more chances and at least tested their keeper a little bit more than what we did."
