Newcastle's only league defeats since mid-December have been against Manchester City, and although their problem in general this term has been taking chances and scoring goals, it's worth noting that they have only failed to score in two of their last nine outings.
Eddie Howe's side came from two goals down to claim a point at the Vitality Stadium.
Shelvey's shocking miss came moments before Cherries substitute Adam Smith halved the deficit and ex-Newcastle midfielder Dan Gosling ensured his former side would pay for their profligacy by levelling a minute from time.
Cherries boss Eddie Howe said: "I think my heart this season is being tested, despite my age". I'm not saying that Bournemouth aren't playing well or aren't a good side, but just that [2.2] seems short, especially against a Newcastle team that's quite tough to beat. You need everyone to be focused and not feel sorry for themselves or sulk before the game has ended. "The good thing is that we don't have too many injuries, so someone had to stay out".
"He could give us something different, but we think we have enough quality to cope".
"But credit to the players, we found something, changed the system, changed players and for 20 minutes, we looked like the team we want to be on a more consistent basis".
"We have a lot of work to do and I am under no illusions that we have to deliver". "Hopefully he will still help us in the next games".
"The first goal was very easy for them, and for the second goal, it was another cross and they had two players free in the box".
"They played on the counter-attack and played behind us, and then the second goal changed things again and made for a hard atmosphere at half time". Thus, any efforts that net three points for either Bournemouth or Newcastle will be huge to create some breathing room from the clubs trying to stave off a relegation battle.
