SCOTT Parker explained how his side's reaction to falling behind was what "pleases me most" about beating Sheffield United.

Prior to Saturday's contest at Vitality Stadium, Cherries had not been behind for a single minute in the Championship this season.

However, that changed when Morgan Gibbs-White converted Billy Sharp's low cross little over 10 minutes into the second half.

Cherries immediately stormed back. Dominic Solanke chased onto Lloyd Kelly's long ball and cut inside the defence before being taken down by Enda Stevens.

A penalty was awarded, which Solanke stuck away, meaning Cherries trailed for just six minutes of the contest.

Philip Billing then quickly completed the turnaround as Cherries triumphed 2-1 to go back top of the table, still unbeaten.

Discussing the win over the Blades, boss Parker told the Daily Echo: "I think what pleases me most is I’ve experienced a group of players that have gone behind for the first time this season really. The reaction I see in this group of players, when they did go a goal behind, was what pleases me the most.

"As quickly as we go a goal behind, within eight minutes or something like that, before you know it we’re 2-1 up.

"So the real massive factor in my head, the penalty goes in the back of the net and I see a group of men grab the ball, put it back on the centre circle, get back in and think ‘we can win this game’. That pleases me most."

Parker added: "I’ve been in here now for three months and every day I’m learning something different. Every game I’m always learning different things.

"Saturday was a big learn for me and I knew this day would come. I knew the day would come when we would go behind and what’s the reaction of my team?

"How do they cope in those situations, what’s our mentality? Have I got a group of players here that believe one goal down is not the end of us and we can come back and get back and get back in this game?

"They ticked that box on Saturday, definitely. We’re going to need that mindset and need that mentality throughout this year.

"There will be many more times we go a goal down, we’re 11 games into a 46 game season. That’s going to happen many a time this season."
