Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe praises his team's second-half performance after the Cherries came from behind to beat Stoke City 2-1 on Saturday.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has praised his team's second-half performance after the Cherries came from behind to beat Stoke City 2-1 on Saturday.

Howe's team suffered the worst possible start after Xherdan Shaqiri netted for Stoke five minutes in, but the hosts responded with two goals in eight minutes to snatch all three points.

The result has extended Bournemouth's unbeaten run in the Premier League to seven games, and Howe told Sky Sports News that he was delighted with his team's character in the second period.

"I think any win in the Premier League you take great satisfaction from," he said. "I don't think you can judge them really, they're all as special as each other and today was a totally different feel from the Chelsea game.

"We weren't great in the first period, we had to dig in and make sure we didn't concede a second goal. We always back ourselves to finish strong here at home and get the crowd involved and that happened in the second half when we scored some good goals.

"It is difficult in this division when you go behind with the quality of the players you're playing against, breaking a team down, it is tough and we knew it was going to be difficult. But we grew into the game as we proved and I thought we finished very strongly."

Bournemouth will be looking to make it eight games without loss next Sunday when they play lowly Huddersfield Town.
