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.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
