Hodges said: "Ed came in and played really well and later on Cody Cooke got a run-out from the bench, played for half-an-hour, and also impressed. I was really pleased with his contribution."
The closest City came to breaking the deadlock was late on, when Poppies visibly tired in the wilting heat.
Dan Smith hit the top of the crossbar and Les Afful had an effort cleared off the goal-line.
Hodges said: "In fairness, there were not that many chances at either end but we came good in the last ten minutes when our fitness showed, and you were kind of hoping we may get the breakthrough. We hit the bar and went close but it would have been tough on Bournemouth because they fought hard throughout.
"It was really hot out there – the pitch was dry and hard and it was not ideal for playing any flowing football and the ball ended up spending most of the time in the middle of the park.
"I guess they maybe had two shots the whole game but we didn't have many more, although we did create more chances than them."
