Distin calls for clean sheets, after ‘average’ start to season
“Today is not about being man of the match, it is about being a defender.  As a defender I want to keep clean sheets, we only have one under our belt and we have to do better," he said.
“I would say the season has been average so far, it could have gone a lot better, we need more clean sheets but it is not important how you start or how you go through a season it is how you finish at the end of the season.

“There is no point in focusing on how we started. That is behind us – now we have to look ahead.”
Francis says luck isn’t going the Cherries’ way at the moment, but removes any blame from goalkeeper Artur Boruc.
“Obviously we are disappointed to concede any goal but in the manner that it happened probably even more disappointed", he said.
“We had the chance to win the game in the second half. Unfortunately our luck wasn’t in with the penalty, that is just the way things seem to be going for us at the moment.
“I thought we did enough to win the game today but a couple of unlucky moments have gone against us.
“It’s not like him (Boruc), he has bailed us out of many games this season and last season in the Championship.
“Since he has been here so you can’t really legislate for it, it is just a mistake that has been made and we move on.”
The season has been frustrating so far but we have a lot to build on, says Surman.
“I think it has gone well, we are probably more frustrated really," he said.
“I think in games where we either should have won or we have dropped points in it’s been a bit frustrating, but I feel we should have more points on the board so far this season.
“I don’t think we’ve really played anyone this season where we have felt that we were totally out of the game but seven points is a decent total, we just have to build on that now.
“Today is another one, we dominated the first half and found ourselves at 1-1 so it is frustrating.”
