Following yesterday’s clash between Bournemouth and Huddersfield Town, here are the instant reactions from both managers.

Bournemouth hosted Huddersfield Town at Dean Court for a 3pm kick off on Saturday November 18, with the hosts taking a comprehensive four nil victory following a Callum Wilson hattrick and a further strike from Harry Arter.

Victory was secured despite the sending off of Simon Francis for a second yellow card.

Speaking to the BBC’s cameras a short time after match day referee Lee Probert blew the final whistle, Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe explained of Wilson.

‘Football is a difficult game to read and predict futures. When he scored a hat-trick against West Ham in August 2015 he looked like he had the world at his feet. But all the way through his injury process he has been positive.’

He added.

‘We realised the importance of backing up the win we got before the break. We need as many points as we can. The fixture list changes in December and it will be a difficult run for us.’

Huddersfield manager David Wagner in his comparitive interview explained.

‘It would be 0-0 if we had them (video assistant referees). But we don’t have them. Today he made big mistakes. For the first goal there was a clear foul, a harsh tackle and we concede a corner. The second was clear offside. Goals change games and these after wrong decisions changed the game.’
