A modest Dean Court crowd saw plenty of football played on the deck but Eddie Howe's 4-3-3 formation did not yield a breakthrough against a side that will replace his in League One next season.

City forward Bobby Reid looked lively in the early stages, going close with a free-kick from 25 yards, before guiding a header just wide.

Mohamed Coulibaly and Marc Pugh responded for the hosts but both saw their efforts blocked by a determined City defence.

Pugh had the Cherries' best chance of the second-half but drilled his shot straight at goalkeeper Frank Fielding, while Ryan Fraser could only fire into the side-netting late on as time got the better of both sides.

m a big Rafa fan, but when he substitutes Ronaldo after 60 minutes of his first game, which Real draw 1-1, I don't see the Real fans being patient. He'll be gone before October is out.
