ATT: 6150 | REF: Tanner| HALF-TIME: 0-0


55 mins | DANNY INGS | AFC Bournemouth

Adam Smith turned and headed for the home goal before he tangled with Nathan Smith who made a poor challenge from behind. PENALTY – Danny Ings cooly stepped up and sent the goalkeeper the wrong way to put the Cherries in front. Yeovil 0-1 AFC Bournemouth

68 mins | DANNY INGS | AFC Bournemouth

Liam Feeney got away done the wing before evading the attention of two Yeovil players before waiting for Ings to arrive and slot a perfectly weighted pass to the striker. Ings shot first time across the goal to give the visitors a two goal lead.  Yeovil 0-2 AFC Bournemouth

86 mins | ADAM VIRGO | Yeovil

The ball dropped to a Yeovil player who looked to volley the ball goalwards, but Harry Arter inexplicably put his hands in the air to give the home side an undisputed penalty that was neatly dispatched by Adam Virgo .  Yeovil 1-2 AFC Bournemouth

93 mins | SHAUN MACDONALD | Yeovil

With the clock ticking down, (a much used phrase) the Cherries showed how not to defend a corner as Shaun McDonald headed home unchallenged to give Yeovil an undeserved share of the points. Yeovil 2-2 AFC Bournemouth

LEE BRADBURY gives his reaction:

When they went down to 10 men, we took a backwards step and we need to grab the game by the scruff of the neck and see games out.
“That’s 24 points we’ve lost now going in front and then giving away leads – it’s something that we have got to address.
“There were some good individual performances but as a team we need to mature and grow up very quickly.

It was all very frustrating. We should have had another two points

“We were in control of the match at 2-0 but we didn’t see it out. It was all very frustrating. We should have had another two points, but it is another game closer to where we want to be.” He added: “I said to our lads we have got to grow up quickly. If we went up next year we would get punished every week if we are that naive.


“Our penalty was certainly handball,” said Skiverton. “His (Harry Arter) hands were above his head and he jumped. That made it 2-1 and then a great delivery from a corner laid on the equaliser for Shaun MacDonald. For him to climb up and get that goal was brilliant.”


Once again the last five minutes of the game defined the outcome and will probably define the Cherries season. Another opportunity for three points went out the window when Harry Arter decided to stick his hands in the air for no apparent reason. On the plus side Danny Ings looks to be getting better and better and as long we have someone scoring there’s a good chance of getting maximum points. Let’s look forward to three points and revenge against Rovers. Dodgy penalty would be good.
