AFC Bournemouth’s journey into the Championship has been an exhilarating ride with a few downs and plenty of ups. We pick our favourite five Championship games of the 2013/14 season so far…
NO. 01 – AFC BOURNEMOUTH 4 LEEDS UTD 1
It couldn’t have happened to a nicer team. It was a long time in the making but it was worth the wait. 3-0 up after half an hour and cruising. Just a shame there wasn’t more goals.
NO. 02 – AFC BOURNEMOUTH 5 MILLWALL 2
Another team that are not particularly popular and they got a proper drubbing with a stunning second-half performance from the Cherries. Great Strike from Harry Arter and celebration from Lewis Grabban.
NO. 03 – AFC BOURNEMOUTH 5 DONCASTER 0
A hat-trick from Yann Kermorgant on his full debut and two great strikes from Harry Arter. Five goals wasn’t flattering in the slightest, could have easily been 8-0.
NO. 04 – AFC BOURNEMOUTH 1 WIGAN 0
In only our second home game of the season we were playing the FA Cup holders and one of the favourites to get promoted the Premiership. One mistake, one goal and one red card all added to the excitement.
NO. 05 – READING 1 AFC BOURNEMOUTH 2
Winning away is always a bonus and doing it against your local rivals, who believe they are better than you is even more sweet. And, obviously, ending their unbeaten home record was an added extra.
