THE SOUTH END SAYS
OUR VIEW ON THE LATEST GAME
Eddie Howe – the man is a footballing genius. There can be nothing else to explain the the rocket-fuelled rise in fortunes since his takeover. Four wins and a draw in 5 games in the league and 5 in 6 in all competitions. The win adding more kudos to the Howe brand and giving the Cherries a title-challenging 13 out of 15 points.
“The home side couldn’t muster a shot on target and it was the visitors who took the lead in unspectacular fashion”
The Doncaster game was always going to be a test of the Cherries credentials with Rovers sitting in the play-off zone. The Cherries started the game in the ascendency and forced a few corners and had a few speculative shots. The home side eased their way into the game and came close on a couple of occasions. However, the home side couldn’t muster a shot on target and it was the visitors who took the lead in unspectacular fashion. MacDonald received the ball just outside the centre of the box, a short pass to Arter saw him bustle pass two defenders and hitting a scuffed shot into the bottom corner.
As expected the home side came out looking for the equaliser and came close but never really threatened. The Cherries grew into the second half and started to create chances with Pugh and Pugh almost adding to the visitors tally. The home side had a penalty shout, with Rovers boss Dean Saunders saying, “I’ve seen it again on video and it was a blatant penalty because their lad has just pushed him in the back.”
We’ve seen it on video more than once and we, unsurprisingly, have a slightly different opinion to Mr Saunders. We reckon he should have gone to Specsavers.
The home pushed hard for the equaliser in the last 15 minutes but rarely troubled David James. The Cherries held out for till the final whistle and the three points and their first clean sheet in the League with Howe in charge.
No defender on the bench for #afcb and Cook at right back? You’d think we were plagued with injuries. Where’s Zubar?
Great result for the lads all aboard the Eddie Express!!! #afcb
Boom!!! What a nice feeling that is! Defo makes the 5 hour drive back enjoyable. Great support from the travelling faithful too! #AFCB

The final whistle goes! The Cherries support is rapturous. A fantastic victory and a very disciplined performance. #drfc 0-1 #afcb
Fairly uneventful half until the goal but #afcb been in complete control throughout. Nice finish from Arter to put us deservedly ahead.#drfc
