Johann Berg Gudmundsson has admitted that the players were disappointed to not give the travelling fans the result they wanted following the loss to Bournemouth.

Losing the game two one at Dean Court, Berg Gudmundsson hailed the support of the fans in the game and all season long and admitted the players were disappointed not to have taken at least a point from the tie.

Speaking to the Official Site in his own post game press conference, he explained.

‘The fans were great today. They have been unbelievable supporting us across the country and it would have been great to get a point, but it hasn’t happened. It would have been great but that’s the nature of football. You can’t switch off for one minute as we did.’

He went on to say.

‘It was a great header from Vokesy. He`s been great in the last few games but football is a tough sport and they punished us. We should have kept it 1-1. We didn’t play well enough so when you get that goal we should keep hold of that that. We didn’t, so it was a tough thing to take.’

Having secured safety for the year and a second year in the Premier League in 2017/18, he echoed Sean Dyche in terms of the players just running out of steam but he knew that there could be plenty of positives to take from our season and we could still finish in the top ten, depending on other results, if we take victory over West Ham next weekend.

‘We have been unbelievable at home. The fans have been great at home as well and we want to finish off with a great performance and hopefully get the three points. I can’t wait for next season. Injuries haven’t helped me this season. I’ve been away for way too long. Next season I want to stay fit and as I have shown when I have played, I can definitely help the team.’
