76: Fraser passes it in from the right to Smith whose cross is met by Afobe who can’t keep his header down. bouwhu
75: With 15 minutes to go and a huge 3 points in sight, the Cherries just need to hold on to the ball a bit more as they’re giving away possession cheaply too many times. bouwhu

GOAL FOR THE CHERRIES!!!!
And we’re off, Afobe gets us under the way..
HALF TIME: An eventful first half comes to an end. The Cherries will me disappointed not to be out in front after missing two spot kicks, but a Josh King goal cancelled out Antonio’s 9th minute strike. bouwhu
45: 2 minutes added on bouwhu
42: Andy Carroll still seems to be sluggish following time out from an injury. He gives away another cheap foul whilst the away side were in a dangerous position. bouwhu

37: PENALTY MISSED AGAIN!!!!! DEJA VU as Randolph dives to his right and saves a weak strike from Afobe. Howe might be changing next week’s training schedule a bit…..
Pugh appears to be caught by Jose Fonte, Afobe steps up…..
36: PENALTY TO AFC BOURNEMOUTH!
34: King has sprung into live following the goal. He beats his man and was running at the Clarets defence with pace but a nasty challenge from behind results in a yellow card for Obiang. bouwhu
King will feel relieved having missed a penalty earlier but redeemed himself with a wonderful finish. bouwhu
30: On the half hour mark, a lovely piece of skill from King in the area sees the Cherries front man bury a half volley home and bring Howe’s men level!! bouwhu
GOAL!!!! 1-1 – JOSH KING SCORES!!!
28: Quiet period of the game ends with a long shot from Fraser who works Darren Randolph into action. The resultant corner is taken short and the wee man whips one in to Steve Cook who’s header forces Randolph into an acrobatic save. bouwhu

14: Afobe is in behind and dinks one over Clarets keeper Randolph but ref Robert Madley says he used his hand bouwhu
