Iraola rues missed opportunity in Villa draw
Andoni Iraola regretted a missed opportunity for his Bournemouth side as they drew 2-2 with Aston Villa.
The Cherries surrendered two leads to Unai Emery's side at the Vitality Stadium, with the second equaliser scored by Ollie Watkins in the 90th minute.
And their boss was not pleased with his side's inability to see out the game.
He said: "We deserved to win the game but against this type of opposition this can happen.
"One point is not enough for us today.
"Both sides are good in transition so every time we lost the ball it was dangerous, their goalkeeper was excellent and that's the reason why we didn't win.
"You have to accept that they scored a very good goal. We continue to do the same things but the understanding is better and our players are physically in a good spot.
"If we are not at 100% it is not good enough."
Iraola's opposite number Emery was relieved to have emerged with a draw from their third match in a week.
He said: "It's a good point.
"We were aware it would be difficult to get a victory today. The point is good for us when you are losing a match.
"We will try to use this point. We prefer to control the game but it was not easy."
The result leaves Villa in fourth prior to Tottenham's clash at Manchester City.
They take on Manchester City in the Premier League on Wednesday evening while Bournemouth travel to Selhurst Park to play Crystal Palace on the same evening.
