10-man Bournemouth run out of saviours at Sheffield Wednesday

The Cherries failed to excite in this game and went down to 10-men when Steve Cook misjudged an attempt to get back to Josh Windass and put him off from putting Sheffield Wednesday ahead. With Barry Bannan scoring from the penalty Bournemouth tried reshuffling the deck, but this time there were no late saviours. Sheffield Wednesday also went down to 10-men as well in the last few minutes, but Bournemouth couldn't find a leveller for the scorebaord.

Steve Cook gets his marching orders.

Bournemouth were at full strength to take on Sheffield Wednesday. In came Josh King, Dan Gosling, David Brooks and Jefferson Lerma. Dominic Solanke, Lewis Cook and Junior Stanislas moved to the bench, while Philip Billing didn't make the squad.

Begovic concedes another corner. Rico is fouled by Kachunga who receives a yellow card. Adam Smith concedes a corner. Bannan crosses but BΓΆrner heads wide.

Plenty of early pressure from the home side. Bournemouth need to get more control. Gosling fouls Odubajo on the right-wing. It's pretty even in terms of possession so far. Bannan takes the free kick and Begovic just does enough as Liam Palmer heads wide.

Pelupessy has fouled David Brooks. Josh Windass shoots inside the box and Begovic saves. Danjuma is fouled before Bournemouth win a corner. Adam Smith fouls Windass.

Kachunga, already on a yellow, is living dangerously fouling Lerma. Lerma does well in midfield but can't get the ball to King.

Brooks does well to find Danjuma, but the Dutchman slips when he was just about to put Gosling through. Kachunga misses a header near the centre of the box. Gosling has won a free kick.

Sheffield Wednesday break but Windass is offside. Kelly fouls Kachunga. Lerma has fouled Pelupessy and is booked. Windass shoots from the direct free kick and misses the goal. Bournemouth win a corner off of Iorfa. Five minutes to half-time. Another poof first 45-minutes by AFCB. Mepham has put his headed effort wide from the corner. A shot of any kind is a rarity from AFCB this half.

Pelupessy is carded for a foul on Lerma. Plamer has now got a yellow card as he takes out Brooks who was heading to goal. Two minutes of added time. Rico shoots wide from outside the box.

Danjuma takes aim and his dipping shot is tipped over for a corner.

AFCB possession 60%, shots 7, shots on target 1, corner 4, fouls 6
Sheffield Weds possession 40%, shots 6, shots on target 0, corners 3, fouls 11.


Second half
Kachunga still hasn't stopped his fouling as he catches Mepham. Brooks and Danjuma are linking well. Smith gets the ball to King in the box, the cross is hit hard and Rico can't quite get to it at the far post.

Josh King is getting on the ball. He finds Brooks but the shot is blocked. BΓΆrner concedes a corner. Lerma heads it past the left post. Bournemouth are gettng closer.

Sheffield Wednesday's corner and Kachinga heads across the box but there's no Wednesday player around. Palmer goes close with a shot in the box but it goes wide.

Adam Smith crosses and Josh King heads wide. Rico is fouled by Odubajo. BΓΆrner is carded for a foul on King. Lerma fouls Palmer.


Adam Smith wins a free kick and Danjuma's shot is deflected for a corner. Bournemouth have most of the possession but this game is in the balance.

Bournemouth substitute Brooks and on comes Solanke on 67 minutes. Windass is in the box against Begovic and should score but Steve Cook intervenes, Windass is down and Sheffield Wednesday have a penalty. Steve Cook has been sent off. Wednesday go 1-0 up after Barry Bannan scores from the spot on 71 minutes.

Lewis Cook comes on for Danjuma and fouls Kachunga. King almost gets through but Palmer defends well. Wildsmith parries the corner and Gosling misses the chance to stick it home in the six yard box.

Paterson replaces Kachunga and Stacey replaces Rico on 80 minutes. Brown replaces Reach on 84 minutes. Adam Smith has fouled Pelupessy. Paterson's shot is saved. Bournemouth break and Kelly wins a free kick. Mepham misses with a header.

Marriott comes on for Windass. Six minutes of added time. Kadeem Harris is red carded for a foul on Lerma. It's 10 v 10 but times has almost run out.

Lewis Cook crosses and Gosling heads well but it's saved. Lerma fouls Paterson. 


Well the unbeaten record goes which was perhaps becoming a burden. Bournemouth didn't start well again and the flat first half wasn't so easy for Tindall to turnaround this time. Bournemouth held most of the possession, but the shooting was wayward and with Steve Cook unlucky to be sent off Begovic couldn't save the penalty. It was a poor night and many of the players will be disappointed with their performances.
