JASON Tindall was pleased with the way his side responded to see off Oldham Athletic, but admitted the first-half performance fell "way below the expectations we set ourselves."

Cherries were fortunate to come in at half-time level at 1-1 in the FA Cup third-round tie with goals from David Brooks and Latics frontman Dylan Bahamboula.

The hosts showed a marked improvement after the restart with a Joshua King brace and Rodrigo Riquelme strike securing a 4-1 victory against the League Two outfit.

"We weren't good enough in the first half," admitted Tindall.

"I felt we were way below our standards, way below the expectations we set ourselves, hence the tactical change at half-time.

"I felt we came out second half and we were much, much better. Controlled the second half, scored three good goals in the second half and should've scored probably another two or three more goals.

"Certainly way below my expectations as a team and I'm sure from the expectations of the individuals in the first half. But much better second half."
