AFCB claim another tremendous comeback win against Burnley

Match Report
Burnley 1 v 2 AFCB
13 May 2018
Attendance: 20,720
Burnley fans may be in Europe but a first win for AFCB at
Turf Moor is a great way for the Cherries to end the season.
Bournemouth salvaged a last minute winner to end their season with a flourish. In a pretty uneventful game, Bournemouth had much of the ball in the first half, but fell one-nil down to a Chris Wood goal that came from a deflection off a wayward shot from Jeff Hendricks. The second half brought a response from the Cherries, when Josh King finished neatly from close range and a draw seemed a fair outcome for a game that never really ignited. But Defoe made the most of a Burnley mistake and squared the ball to Callum Wilson who so needed a goal to finish the season as joint top scorer with Josh King.

AFCB made four changes with Tyrone Mings, Lys Mousset, Jordan Ibe and Emrson Hyndman getting starts and Simon Francis and Lewis Cook not in the squad, while Pugh and Wilson moved to the bench. It would be Hyndman's debut start for AFCB in a Premier League game. Simon Francis was ill, while Lewis Cook was rested presumably ahead of potential inclusion in the England World Cup squad.

Chris Wood starts instead of Ashley Barnes for Burnley in their only change.
Match Description

Gudmundsson puts in a free kick. The ball comes off Mousset for a corner. Begovic holds on to a header from Tarkowski.

One minute of added time. That's half time 1-0.

Second Half

Ibe and Wilson and Ibe on the byline puts the ball across but there is no one to finish. Chris Wood is off and Sam Vokes is on for Burnley.

Aké has moved into midfield. 17 minutes of the second half have gone. Fraser and Daniels have gone to full backs and Steve Cook and Mings are playing centre-backs.

Hendrick in front of goal and Gudmundsson and Lowton has put it over. Mings is down holding his left knee. Ibe is also down on the half way line.

Jermain Defoe is coming on. Mings is all right but is coming off. King in the box is down after Lennon's challenge, but it's no penalty only a corner. Could well have been a penalty.

Burnley now and Fraser makes a block with Gudmundsson coming on from behind. Begovic makes a catch. 70 minutes gone. Lennon into Hendrick and a corner to Burnley.

Hendrick and Surman and Gosling clear. Westwood and Vokes and Steve Cook clears. The Cherries are not putting pressure on Burnley yet and they have made all three of their subs.

King fond Defoe, turned away by Pope. King has equalised for Bournemouth! Curls it into the top corner from the six yards. King is going to end up AFCB's top scorer by the looks of it. 74 minutes gone.

Surman breaks with King a chance for Defoe but he has lost his footing. Ibe to King and Wilson but Tarkowski clears. Gosling now and Wilson, Ibe is closed down. Gosling is off side.

Hendrick and Wells cross is cleared by Aké. Cook and Wells in a race and Cook wanted Begovic to come for it but was slow out. Ward and Surman clears.

Fraser to Wilson who an't control it. Defoe is through Wilson and he's scored! The 95th minute and Wilson gets a goal. Can't believe it! unselfish of Defoe. That give Howe his 100th league wins.

Surman gives the ball away. Cork into the back post and Lowton couldn't quite make it.

That's it an away win for AFCB.

Bournemouth's first ever win at Turf Moor gives the Cherries a 12th place finish and 44 points. Burnley will have been disappointed to not finish stronger, but the Cherries have been a team that come from behind this season. It was especially pleasing for the away fans to see a win as they have seen some poor games over recent months, but this result made up for it a bit when you consider Burnley will be playing in Europe next season. It should also be remembered that this is the first Premier League match that AFCB have won without Simon Francis being involved!
