Brighton & Hove Albion manager Oscar Garcia content with point at Bournemouth

Brighton manager Oscar Garcia says that he is content with today's point at Bournemouth.

Oscar Garcia has said that he is happy with Brighton & Hove Albion's point against Bournemouth today.

The Seagulls travelled along the South Coast on a three-game winning streak but had to settle for a point as Ashley Barnes's classy half-volley cancelled out Matt Ritchie's first-half free kick.

Speaking afterwards, Albion manager Garcia told the club website: "I feel it was a good point for us, we wanted to pick up all three but it wasn't possible.

"We have to give Bournemouth credit because they played very well. It was a balanced game and a point was the correct result.

"It was one half to them and a half to us. The first half they played better but in the second we played much better than them."

A point kept Brighton in ninth place, two shy of the playoff places in the Championship. They next host struggling Barnsley on Tuesday night.
