Record signing Matt Tubbs came off the substitutes' bench to salvage a draw for Bournemouth with a stoppage-time equaliser against Hartlepool.

Hartlepool had been set to nick a rare win on the strength of James Walton's second-half penalty.

Tubbs spurned a great chance to equalise when he headed wide.

But with time running out keeper Shwan Jalal sent a desperate clearance almost the length of the field and Wes Fogden created an opening for Tubbs to level.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Bournemouth manager Paul Groves told BBC Radio Solent:

"That's part of the learning curve - the fact that a team comes here, parks the bus and puts the men behind the ball. You've got to break it down and that's not easy.

"You've got about eight or nine new players and you're expected to turn things around or to win games constantly. Sometimes you are going to face difficult tasks against opposition that get behind the ball.

"There's no doubt it [the booing] affected the players because in the end they get frustrated, edgy and nervous. As a young group of players, that's where it's tough for them."
