Thank you and goodbye

That is all for our live coverage of Bournemouth v Swansea. Cracking game. I'll see thee.

BBC Sport's Mark Mitchener at Vitality Stadium: "Four additional minutes are done and dusted - three goals mean three precious points for Bournemouth. They're up to 38 points with eight games left and must sense that Premier League football looks set to return to Dorset for a second season. Swansea must wait a little longer to ensure survival. Just as well Eddie Howe's side are not desperately scrabbling around the relegation zone - it's Tottenham and Manchester City up next for the Cherries."  

FULL-TIME

Bournemouth 3-2 Swansea

Game over. Huge cheers from the home crowd. That is three wins on the bounce for the Cherries. And I reckon that is them safe.

Time nearly up. Looks like three more points for Bournemouth.

Neil Taylor fouls Matt Ritchie deep in the Bournemouth half. Precious time ticks away.

Bournemouth 3-2 Swansea

The Bournemouth fans have adopted 'Swing Low Sweet Chariot' to taunt the Swansea fans. They have clearly got word from Twickenham that things are going well for England in the rugby.

There are going to be four additional minutes.

Chris Powell

Former England full-back on Final Score

"It has been a very, very good game - end to end with two teams who like to play attacking football."

Bournemouth 3-2 Swansea

Frantic stuff in and around the Bournemouth box. It requires some cool heads in the home defence to keep out Swansea, who are piling more and more men forward. Might as well go for it now.

Swansea's final change sees Ki Sung-yueng come on for Leroy Fer.

Bournemouth 3-2 Swansea

That third goal looks to have done serious damage to Swansea's belief. Bournemouth look confident and nearly seal the win with a Lewis Grabban chip that Lukasz Fabianski tips over the bar.

BBC Sport's Mark Mitchener at Vitality Stadium: "Having thrown away a 2-0 advantage at the Liberty Stadium in November, and twice allowed Swansea to equalise today, Bournemouth will hope not to surrender a fourth lead to the Welsh side after Steve Cook's second goal in successive home games."

SUBSTITUTION

Bournemouth 3-2 Swansea

Modou Barrow goes off. He has been much quieter this half after his impressive first 45 minutes. On comes striker Marvin Emnes. 10 minutes to go.

GOAL - Bournemouth 3-2 Swansea

Steve Cook

The game takes another twist. After Artur Boruc pulls off a superb save to deny Alberto Paloschi, Bournemouth counter-attack and force a corner, which is swung over by Matt Ritchie and met by Steve Cook, whose header is right into the corner of the net. Can't take your eyes off this for a second.

SUBSTITUTION

Bournemouth 2-2 Swansea

Max Gradel has run himself into the ground. He departs to be replaced by the very able Marc Pugh.

Bournemouth 2-2 Swansea

This game is there for the taking. Twice the home side have to be disciplined to keep out crosses from the left as Swansea aim for a third sucker punch. 

BBC Sport's Mark Mitchener at Vitality Stadium: "Swansea are finding space down the right, where some slick passing created Sigurdsson's goal - and Paloschi's chance which followed. Bournemouth left-back Charlie Daniels has won some rave reviews this season as an attacking outlet, but he's got his work cut out defending at the moment. The Swans fans are finding their voice and it's their side in the ascendancy at the moment."

Bournemouth 2-2 Swansea

Eddie Howe twists again, sending on Lewis Grabban for the ineffective Benik Afobe. One January signing for another. Grabban hasn't scored in seven appearances since returning to the Cherries.

Bournemouth 2-2 Swansea

7 - Sergio Agüero (9) is the only player to have scored more Premier League goals in 2016 than Gylfi Sigurdsson (7). Form.

Bournemouth 2-2 Swansea

Swansea pile forward again and almost take the lead for the first time as Modou Barrow's low cross is palmed away from Alberto Paloschi by the diving Artur Boruc. From the resulting corner, Leroy Fer heads down and Bafetimbi Gomis pokes an effort wide.

GOAL - Bournemouth 2-2 Swansea

Gylfi Sigurdsson

Swansea have done it again! Like Gradel before him, Modou Barrow goes from scorer to provider with a low cross into the box that Gylfi Sigurdsson collects before turning and firing in to the top corner. That's seven goals in his past 11 games. Cracking game.

SUBSTITUTION

Bournemouth 2-1 Swansea

Swansea look for extra punch up front, sending on Bafetimbi Gomis for Wayne Routledge. Gomis scored in each of his first four games this season, but has just two since.

Bournemouth 2-1 Swansea

Joshua King with a chance for his second as he drops to the back of the box to collect a low corner but fluffs his shot wide of goal.

Bournemouth 2-1 Swansea

Modou Barrow hasn't seen as much of the ball this half, but he gets a chance to create something here from a pass down the right. He cuts back, takes a look up and chips a cross to... nobody. Bournemouth clear.

BBC Sport's Mark Mitchener at Vitality Stadium: "Joshua King haunts Swansea for the second time this season, having scored his first Bournemouth goal at the Liberty Stadium in November. Since becoming a father on 1 March, he has two goals and an assist to his name this month. And his fifth goal in all competitions means he joins injured pair Callum Wilson and Junior Stanislas at the top of the Cherries' goalscoring charts for 2015-16."

Bournemouth 2-1 Swansea

Swansea look to hit back immediately again as Gylfi Sigurdsson tees up Angel Rangel on the edge of the box but the defender pulls his shot well wide.

"King hit it with real power in off the post. It is a bit harsh if you blame the goalkeeper there."

GOAL - Bournemouth 2-1 Swansea

Joshua King

The Cherries retake the lead! Max Gradel goes from scorer to supplier as drives forward before passing right for Joshua King, who takes a touch to move into the box before driving a shot that beats Lukasz Fabianski at his near post. That is two goals in two games for King, who has five for the season.

Bournemouth 1-1 Swansea

Good news Swans fans. Barrow is back on following a bit of treatment on the sidelines.

Bournemouth 1-1 Swansea

This is a bit of a worry for Swansea. Scorer Modou Barrow is down after taking a clattering in his own half. 

KICK-OFF

Bournemouth 1-1 Swansea

The game is back under way and we have also had a change. Bournemouth have taken off Dan Gosling - who was on a booking - and sent on Eunan O'Kane.

Possession stats

Bournemouth 1-1 Swansea

The away side have had plenty of the ball in that first 45 minutes. They will perhaps feel they could have done more with it. It was only after they had levelled that they starting to exert any control on the game.

BBC Sport's Mark Mitchener at Vitality Stadium: "Part of the half-time entertainment here at Bournemouth involves fans having to bend down and turn round 12 times while keeping their hand on the ball, before taking a shot at the crossbar. Normally, they are so dizzy that they skew the ball miles wide, or take an air shot and fall over in a heap. However, some of today's efforts finished closer to the goal than certain shots at goal from the professionals during that first half..."

Barrow strikes

Bournemouth 1-1 Swansea

Barrow's goal was the pick of the two, coming at the end of a well-worked move and from a cracking low finish...

A first for Max

Bournemouth 1-1 Swansea

Of course, Max Gradel's goal is also his first in the Premier League. It is also a nice reward for all the patience he has shown and hard work he has put in to get back from injury. He has been excellent since his return and was the Cherries' most lively player in that half.

95 nations and counting

Bournemouth 1-1 Swansea

95 - Modou Barrow is the first Gambian to score a Premier League goal, meaning 95 different nationalities have now scored in the PL. Spread.

BBC Sport's Mark Mitchener at Vitality Stadium: "The end of an entertaining - and rather frenetic - first half. As Chris Powell hinted at on Final Score earlier... expect more goals!"

HALF-TIME

Bournemouth 1-1 Swansea

That was an entertaining half. Plenty of chances, two sides looking to attack and a mad couple of minutes. More of the same please.

Bournemouth 1-1 Swansea

Swansea's quick response has put them very much in the ascendancy. Wayne Routledge fires a low shot from distance just past the post. Bournemouth look a bit shell-shocked after Barrow's equaliser.

BBC Sport's Mark Mitchener at Vitality Stadium: "Two rapid goals, two sprints to the touchline and two celebratory bear hugs. Max Gradel goes straight to his manager Eddie Howe, who he described in a BBC World Service interview as being like a father to him during his injury problems, after netting his first Bournemouth goal since a brace against Milllwall in March 2008 when he was on loan here. Modou Barrow's target for a similarly joyous hug after equalising is Swans substitute Bafetimbi Gomis."

John Hartson

"Great response from Swansea, neither goalkeeper has a lot to do but now they have both conceded a goal."
