SCOTT Parker praised the reaction of Zeno Ibsen Rossi to a shaky start to the second half against Blackpool.

The 20-year-old, making just his fourth senior appearance for Cherries, had just escaped without caution for a sliding challenge on Tangerines striker Tyreece John-Jules, before soon conceding a penalty.

Winger Keshi Anderson broke in beyond Ibsen Rossi, who tripped him from behind, allowing Jerry Yates in to score and earn Blackpool a 2-2 draw.

Ibsen Rossi remained on for the final half an hour and looked assured as the hosts took a point.

Asked if he agreed with the decision to award Blackpool a penalty, Parker told the Daily Echo: "I’ve not seen it again. At real time it looked a bit of a penalty to me, it looked like the centre-half, Zeno has got the wrong side and he’s tripped him up.

"No real complaints there."

Discussing Ibsen Rossi's foul, Parker added: "That’s what happens to every single player that plays the game. What brings you through those moments is experiences of having those moments and understanding what you need to put in place and understand what you need to do in those moments.

"Zeno has not had them really. In those moments he’s working on just instinct.

"Sometimes there’s going to be falls in that and that’s down to me and my staff to go over that with him and explain in this moment, what do we need to do, in this moment what are you feeling, okay how do we approach that.

"That goes for a lot of the boys out there today and we will do that."

On Ibsen Rossi's good reaction in the final half an hour, Parker said: "The boy’s got character, the boy’s got a lot in terms of that.

"That’s why he’s playing in the team and that’s why he’s done very, very well.

"But like anything, young players at certain moments, you need to help and I’ll help him in those moments."
