Groves: Second half was much better
Bournemouth caretaker manager Paul Groves was pleased with his side's vastly improved second-half display at Sheffield United.
The Cherries slipped to a 2-1 defeat, with Zavon Hines pulling a bizarre goal back.
Groves said: "I felt that we didn't play with enough purpose and intent really in the first half and it put us on the back foot a little bit.
"I felt in the second we were a lot more positive. We played much better and got a fortunate goal. I don't think Zavon knew too much about it. The ball hit him on the back so I don't think he did a great deal wrong.
"We got ourselves in better situations and put them under pressure. Right at the death we had a decent chance, but it wasn't meant to be.
"We made one or two changes to try and freshen it up and the changes gave us an impetus to go and put them on the back foot. I think the players have been very good but it takes time to try and build a structure and a little bit of belief and confidence."
