Teddy delighted to net his first Town goal and praises the character of the team following hard-earned point at the Goldsands Stadium

Teddy Bishop praised the character of his teammates, as Town twice came from behind to claim a share of the spoils against Bournemouth.

The midfielder came off the bench to score his first senior goal for the Club, cancelling out Yann Kermorgant’s opener for the Cherries, with Matt Ritchie extending Bournemouth’s lead in the second-half.

However Daryl Murphy grabbed a second goal for Town with a well placed header to see the Blues claim a deserved point, according to Teddy.

“We’ve worked hard today and taken a great point against a very good side,” the Academy graduate told the Club website.

“We showed good character to come back twice and I think we definitely deserved that. We rode out their spells and as the game wore on, we could have even won it.

“It was a special day for me because I scored my first goal, although it seemed to take an age to go in!

“I was waiting for the ball to hit the back of the net and as soon as I saw it had crossed the line, I was buzzing really. It’s a great feeling to score and I have to give credit to [Tyrone] Mingsy for his work in the build up.

“I wasn’t too sure what to do when the ball went it so I just stood around and gave it a little fist-pump! It was a great feeling and hopefully I can score again soon.”
