Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe: "It was a tight game, a tough game. You wouldn't believe we were at the wrong end of the table early in the game. I was disappointed that we weren't able to recover after they equalised.
"We had a couple of moments but the second goal was a killer blow.
"You are used to these conditions. The pitch played well but we lost momentum as the game went on."
Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder: "We were hanging on at times. We grew into the game and I felt a goal was coming. I was delighted to go into the break on level terms.
"We try to build momentum and create pressure. They controlled the game early on but our reaction was great. We really went for it in the second half and the belief the boys have is amazing.
"I'm sure when we were coming off our fans were singing that we're safe. We're not there yet but there's no let-up from us. There are no comfortable footballers in our changing room - they all have something to prove.
"I'm a bit controversial in that I'd want to carry on - I'd like it if we had a game next week. But we'll come back refreshed for the next part of the season."
