The Swans were narrowly beaten 3-2 at the Vitality Stadium despite twice coming from behind thanks to goals from midfielders Modou Barrow and Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Swansea thought they had rescued a point but defender Steve Cook scored late on to keep the Welsh outfit in the relegation fight.

Ahead of next week’s tie against Aston Villa, Emnes has now demanded more from his side as they bid to confirm their place in the top flight for next year.

He told the club’s official website: “We had two wins on-the-bounce, so to be beaten like that is disappointing.

“We win together and lose together, so everyone is a little bit down, but we will bounce back.

“I felt we were unfortunate to come away from the game (against Bournemouth) with nothing. We reacted well after going behind twice and showed character, which is a positive.

“We must now focus on next week and prepare well for Aston Villa. We need the three points to start climbing the table, and we want to secure victory in front of our fans.”
