FULL-TIME

Bournemouth 2-2 Stoke

That's it.

Both clubs are safe following Hull's 2-0 defeat against Sunderland.

Smiles all around at the Vitality.

CLOSE!

Bournemouth 2-2 Stoke

Steve Cook almost nods into his own net for a second Cherries own goal. But instead his header goes out for corner.

The corner comes to nothing.

Joshua King is in an offside position, something the linesman hasn't seen. He scuffed the ball off the outside of his boot and it's somehow ended up in the back of the net.

King levels for Cherries

Bournemouth 2-2 Stoke

You cannot keep this man off the scoresheet.

Joshua King grabs his 16th of the season - although his effort went in off Ryan Shawcross.

Adam Smith, once again, delivers a great ball from the right. Substitute Max Gradel's header comes off King's foot and in off the Stoke defender.

A point will be enough for Bournemouth to secure their Premier League status.

SUBSTITUTION

Bournemouth 1-2 Stoke

Mame Biram Diouf, who was going to come off before he scored his goal, is replaced by Jon Walters.

Diouf scores his first since May

Bournemouth 1-2 Stoke

Well now. The Cherries had looked more likely to score next.

Geoff Cameron loops in a cross from the right. His team-mate Marko Arnautovic tries to get his head on it under pressure from two defenders, but instead the ball falls to Mame Biram Diouf, who fires in his first league goal since May, from about five yards.

What now Cherries?

SUBSTITUTION

No he's not. It could be a problem with his hamstring.

He's off.

Max Gradel replaces Stanislas.

Bournemouth 1-1 Stoke

Cherries goalscorer Junior Stanislas is on the deck for some reason or another. He seems OK.

Bournemouth 0-1 Stoke

Stoke's Glen Johnson goes for glory.

He goes past one...

He's stopped.

Stanislas sweeps in equaliser

Bournemouth 1-1 Stoke

Bournemouth's best move of the match results in the equaliser.

Adam Smith, who has been brilliant as a defensive attacking player, drifts down the right and fires a low ball into the area which Joshua King allows to go between his legs in order for Junior Stanislas to sweep home.

A lovely move, and a lovely finish.

WHAT A MISS!

Oh Marko!!!

Arnautovic heads over from FOUR yards from Joe Allen's cross from the right.  That should have been 2-0.

Hang your head in shame big man.

SUBSTITUTION

Bournemouth 0-1 Stoke

Lys Mousset - forever known as the player who scored an own goal playing against Stoke - is replaced by Ryan Fraser.

Bournemouth 0-1 Stoke

Xherdan Shaqiri's shot from 20 yards out takes a deflection and goes out for a corner.

The set-piece results in zilch for the Potters. But the visitors are applying the pressure yet again...

Bournemouth 0-1 Stoke

Junior Stanislas tries to find a team-mate with a delicate chip into the area from his free-kick, but he doesn't.

Ah well...

"Lys Mousset, BBC News..."

Bournemouth 0-1 Stoke

Lyce Doucet
BBC
Not Lys Mousset

Have you noticed how "Lys Mousset" sounds a lot like BBC news correspondent "Lyce Doucet"?

No?

Anyway, it's a free-kick for Bournemouth just outside the Stoke area.

Bournemouth 0-1 Stoke

Stoke are holding a very disciplined line in front of their defence which Bournemouth are finding hard to penetrate.

The Cherries are probing in these early minutes of the half, but nothing more than that.

KICK-OFF

We are back under way.

HALF-TIME

Bournemouth 0-1 Stoke

... but it breaks down. And it's half-time. 

Ref Paul Tierney appeared not to want this half to end.

Some of us did. 

STOPPAGE TIME

The Cherries mount one last pre-break attack...

Bournemouth 0-1 Stoke

Bournemouth are doing their utmost to grab an equaliser before the break. However, the final ball has been lacking today, so far.

At least their 21-year-old striker Lys Mousset has got on the scoreshee... ahhh..

Bournemouth 0-1 Stoke

Junior Stanislas surges down the right, into the area and plays a low ball intended for the six-yard area.

However, the cross eludes Lys Mousset, and Joshua King smashes the partially cleared ball over the bar.

Fact

Bournemouth 0-1 Stoke

629 - Stoke City have scored their first goal away from home in the Premier League in 629 minutes of action. Fortunate.

French striker's OG gives Stoke the lead

Bournemouth 0-1 Stoke

It was coming, to be fair.

Stoke had twice gone close moments earlier, and from a corner it was third time lucky.

Xherdan Shaqiri's set-piece from the left is swung in. Lys Mousset, making his first league start for the Cherries this season, heads in under pressure from Geoff Cameron.

Keeper Artur Boruc had little chance.

GREAT SAVE!

Bournemouth 0-0 Stoke

Two great efforts by Stoke!

First Xherdan Shaqiri's low goalbound drive in deflected out for a corner by Steve Cook and then Marc Muniesa's low drive is pushed away by Artur Boruc.

The Potters are looking strong.

Stoke have another corner.

OUCH AND YELLOW CARD!

Bournemouth 0-0 Stoke

Harry Arter loves a challenge - he goes in two footed on Stoke's Joe Allen.

The ref Is Paul Tierney... the card is... yellow.

That's Arter's 11th booking of the season.

Some would deem him very lucky to still be on the pitch.

So so much X-rated, as banned by the British Board of Film Classification.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Bournemouth 0-0 Stoke

The closest we've come to a goal.

Adam Smith thunders an effort from 18 yards against the crossbar. The loose ball arrives at the feet of Cherries striker Lys Mousset, but he sends his follow-up over the bar from eight yards.

The ball did come at him at pace - in his defence.

Bournemouth 0-0 Stoke

Lys Mousset - worth giving him a mention now.

Bournemouth's French striker has just had a ball played in his direction, but it had a little bit too much on it and goes out for a throw-in.

Anyway, that's the mention.

Bournemouth 0-0 Stoke

Cherries defender Adam Smith darts into the area and tries to cut the ball back for Joshua King, but Stoke manage to clear.

The game hasn't quite exploded, nay, spurted into life, but...

Bournemouth 0-0 Stoke

Stoke have a sniff... well... a bit of a sniff.

Marko Arnautovic has a pop from the edge of the area but it's scuffed and easily collected by Artur Boruc. Very easily.

Joshua King, on a ridiculous goalscoring streak - 12 in 14 games, jinks past two defenders on the right of the box and plays the ball into the six-yard area.

But it's a tad bit too high and too close to Jack Butland, who collects under little pressure.

Congratulations!

Bournemouth 0-0 Stoke

It's exactly 10 hours since Stoke scored their last away goal in the league.

Decent hit

Bournemouth 0-0 Stoke

An early firm strike by Junior Stanislas from 18 yards after collecting a long raking ball from Steve Cook - but the English winger is flagged offside.

It was a good hit though.
