In-form Chesterfield scored both goals on a rain sodden afternoon.
The Cherries started brightly and were looking effective while not dangerous. A quick counter-attack was well spotted by the Spirites keeper before Jamie Ward skipped round the Bournemouth defence to curl home.A very poor Cooper pass almost saw number two but Jalal blocked well with his body.
The second half saw the same formation but more effort. Rankine had a couple of decent chances but failed to get the ball in the net. The introduction of Pitman, Bartley and Goulding signalled an attacking intent.
The Cherries were desperately looking for a breakthrough which came in the 82nd minute from a deflected Anderton header.
