BOSS Scott Parker hailed Cherries’ attitude to avoid any FA Cup banana skins at Yeovil and added: “I knew we would approach the game in the right way.”

A hat-trick from Danish star Emiliano Marcondes paved the way for a 3-1 victory over the non-league Glovers and book the Dorset club’s place in the fourth round.

Former Cherries youngster Joe Quigley was able to tap home early in the second half for the hosts after keeper Orjan Nyland dwelled on the ball.

But despite that blip, Parker was happy to see his side progress with relative comfort.

He told the Daily Echo: “Professionally a very good job well done. I thought first half we were very good, we understood the atmosphere of the game and what it would have been.

“It was a full house here and a committed team we were going to come up against. A team that was going to try to cause us problems in certain areas – set plays, counter-attacks and I thought we dealt with that first half very, very well.

“We showed our quality in our moments to get two goals.

“Second half we gave them a goal really and it was poor on their behalf. We had to weather a little something. They got their noses up, the fans from that point then got a second gear as well and they really go.

“But game control again – we got the third and then really saw out the game well.”

Victory for Cherries, who were 82 places above the Glovers in the football pyramid, came after Parker had made 10 changes to his starting XI.

He added: “I was really pleased with the way we went about it. Full credit to the team and the players, I trust these players 100 per cent.

“They earned the right to be out there. I had no doubt in terms of commitment, attitude, I knew we would approach the game in the right way.

“We needed to do that in an FA Cup tie against Yeovil. The most important thing was attitude, humility at times - understanding what were going to need to bring to this game to get through to the next round.

“We always know we have quality, of course. But like us all, we’ve seen upsets along the way. Normally you see upsets through sometimes a lack of a desire or a real understanding of what the game is going to need to bring.

“I thought my team brought everything.”

The draw for the fourth round takes place on Sunday evening, at approximately 4.50pm.
