Bournemouth ended a seven-game winless run as they edged out Brentford.

The Cherries dominated the first half as Marc Pugh's corner found Steve Cook whose header was cleared off the line by Harry Forrester, while Wes Thomas and Donal McDermott also went close.

Wes Fogden finally broke the deadlock just before the break when he curled in a left-footed shot from 25 yards.

The Bees' best chance came when winger Forrester broke clear but was denied by a superb tackle from Simon Francis.

Neither keeper was called upon much in the second period, while the result lifts Lee Bradbury's side above the visitors into 10th place.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Bournemouth boss Lee Bradbury told BBC Radio Solent:

"We've worked hard over the last couple of weeks to turn things around and I think we've got what we deserved tonight.

"I'm pleased tonight that we've kept a clean sheet, I think we deserved that though. From front to back we worked hard.

"We've performed well of late, the majority of the time, we just need to turn the corner and start getting the results and we've started to do that the last couple of games.

(On Wes Fogden) "I'm really pleased with him because he puts such a shift in for the team and he doesn't always score too many goals."
