Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe praised his players following the narrow 1-0 defeat to Wigan in their FA Cup third-round replay.

A first-half strike from Mauro Boselli was enough to settle the close-fought tie in Wigan's favour, although the Barclays Premier League side had the woodwork to thank for preventing an upset as both Eunan O'Kane and Mark Pugh rattled the crossbar during the 90 minutes.

It is the first time Howe has tasted defeat since he returned as Cherries boss, a run of 18 matches, but the former Burnley manager was pleased with the effort from his side and he said: "I thought it was a really good game and Wigan showed us a lot of respect with the team they picked."
