Camp sees red as Cherries undone by two late Derby goals

Match Description
Derby Co 2 v 0 AFCB 
30 September 2014
Attendance: 26,725
Lee Camp came back into the side
 but was sent off at the iPro stadium last night.
Playing Derby County away was always going to be one of the most difficult games of the season for the Cherries, but their cause was not helped by the sending off of Lee Camp after 67 minutes for handball. The extra outfield player made the difference for Derby who scored two goals in the last 10 minutes to take all the points, but the match had been in the balance before this point with the Cherries putting up a good performance against one of the promotion favourites. 

Artur Boruc had been taken ill with a stomach bug before the match and so it was Lee Camp who had come into the starting 11, but his prevention of Jamie Ward's lob outside the area was enough to see him controversially sent off, when the forward had thought he had gone on to score. It was an up hill battle for AFCB from there, while the ball had indeed ended up in the back of the net, referee Scott Mathieson disallowed the goal and pulled play back for a free kick, while sending Lee Camp off. By the end of the night Darryl Flahavan had taken to the pitch as the Cherries attempted to get something from the game. However, Derby were too strong and goals by Will Hughes on 81 minutes and Chris Martin after 93 minutes ended the Cherries' brave fight. AFCB's best chance had come as early as the 23rd minute when Callum Wilson had been clean through on goal, but saw his shot saved by Lee Grant.

05: #afcb soaking up some early pressure from the Rams. Martin hits one well over the bar from distance.

10: Harte puts an in-swinging corner in but it's straight out of play. Dangerous cross at the other end is dealt with…just!

13: Great pressure from Wilson has Grant scrambling off his goal line to clear. Cherries building momentum.

21: Cyrus Christie puts avery dangerous ball into the Cherries' box but it flies straight through the six yard box & out of play.

23: Massive opportunity for Wilson! Stanislas plays him through but his first time shot is weak and collected by Grant. 

24: Craig Bryson tests Lee Camp's reactions at the other end, but the stopper gets down well to parry and collect the long range effort.

28: Cook clears the ball over his own bar and concedes the corner, which the Cherries clear behind for another.
30: Richard Keogh heads the Rams' third corner in quick succession over the bar.

45: Stanislas wins the corner with a deflected long range effort, but his set piece is straight at Grant.

Harte's free kick is cleared and the half time whistle blows. Entertaining game, but very tough opposition.

53: Harte touches a freekick for Ritchie to smash, but his low drive is collected by Grant easily.

57: Surman hits a half volley from distance and it comes straight off an arm and out for a corner. #afcb players want more.

59: A period of sustained pressure from the Cherries has got the crowd nervy. Need to create a clear cut chance though.

68: Red card for Lee Camp!

68: Grant's long ball is poked home by Ward but not before it's hit Camp's glove. Free kick to the Rams, red card for Camp!

70: Darryl Flahavan is sent on in replace of Callum Wilson.

71: Martin standing over the free kick. Cherries down to ten men. It's off the post!!!

72: For those asking, referee looked to play advantage and award the goal, but elected to bring play back and issue the red card. Strange.

73: An extended break in play sees Howe lecture his troops. The next 20 minutes will be incredibly tough

74: Hendrick and Best are sent on to replace Ward and Eustace.

76: Flahavan was sent on in similar circumstances at Elland Road last season & did well, but conceded. Can he go one better tonight?

90: There will be five minutes added time at the iPro.

90+3: Goal for the Rams. And that spells the end for the Cherries.
