Bournemouth owner Eddie Mitchell has played down his on-pitch antics after the 3-0 home defeat to Chesterfield on Saturday.

Mitchell, who has incensed some Cherries fans by selling the majority of the side which made the League One play-offs last term, took to the field to talk to disgruntled supporters at Dean Court.

Some reports have suggested the 57-year-old incited the angry pockets of fans, but he insists that is not the case.

"I think it has been overcooked a bit. The supporters had their say and I had mine," he told the Bournemouth Echo.

"What happened, happened. If I can't walk on to the pitch and clap the supporters after all I have done for the club then there is something wrong, isn't there?

"To me, it was nothing. I have forgotten all about it."
