But Bournemouth clear. Not long left now.

Burnley have the ball, in Bournemouth's half.

Five minutes injury time for Burnley to get an equaliser.

GOAL - Bournemouth 2-1 Burnley

Josh King (Bournemouth)

Well, that didn't last long. Substitute Ryan Fraser puts in a low cross, Josh King shows his strength to hold off a challenge and slots the ball past Tom Heaton.

GOAL - Bournemouth 1-1 Burnley

Sam Vokes (Burnley)

It has not looked on the cards, but Burnley have got themselves level, with a lovely, lovely header from Sam Vokes, who flicked the ball from 12 yards out from Johann Berg Gudmundsson's cross.

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

Bournemouth's Harry Arter was struggling in the first half, but managed to get all the way until the 81-minute mark, with Dan Gosling now replacing him.

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

The Burnley corner is swung in, and it finds its way to Sam Vokes, but he gets underneath the ball and heads well over the top.

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

Corner to Burnley. They haven't had much of the ball for the last 15 minutes, so they need to do something with this.

SUBSTITUTION

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

Scott Arfield has been one of Burnley's better players today, but he will watch the rest of the game from the bench as Johann Berg Gudmundsson comes on in his place.

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

Bournemouth are dominating possession at the moment as they look to get the second goal that could kill off this game.

CLOSE!

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

Bournemouth's Josh King bustles his way down the left wing, out-muscles Burnley's Kevin Long and manages to get a shot in from a tight angle, but can only hit the side netting. His work deserved better.

SUBSTITUTION

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

That chance for Lys Mousset is his last involvement. Moments after that opportunity he looks to have picked up an injury as he limps off gingerly, to be replaced by Ryan Fraser, who will go just behind lone frontman Josh King.

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

A chance for Bournemouth to double their lead. A looping cross finds Lys Mousset but his header lacks the power and it is comfortably dealt with by Tom Heaton.

Moments later Josh King shoots well wide as the hosts enjoy a good spell.

CLOSE!

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

Scott Arfield has had Burnley's best chances. He was just off target in the first half, and this time a curling effort from 20 yards has Artur Boruc panicking but it is just wide. Unlucky.

SUBSTITUTION

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

A second change for Burnley as they hope to get back in this one. Robbie Brady is on for George Boyd. Will Brady make the difference for the Clarets?

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

A very quiet start to the second half. Fair to say this one has not been a classic.

Marc Pugh produces a nice step-over to get to the byeline, but he then wastes the chance and can't find Josh King with the pull-back.

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

Back under way at Bournemouth.

SUBSTITUTION

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

A change for Burnley for the start of the second half as Andre Gray comes on for Ashley Barnes.

Elsewhere in the Premier League

These are the scores from elsewhere in the Premier League. It is another miserable day for Sunderland, but Swansea are on their way to a huge win.

If it stays like this, Hull will be relegated if they fail to beat Crystal Palace tomorrow.

HALF-TIME

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

And that is the end of the first half. The hosts lead through Junior Stanislas' goal.

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

A minute's applause has just been held in memory of Bournemouth fan Paul Willis, who died at the age of 40.

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

A chance for Scott Arfield who is able to take a touch and sprint towards goal after Ashley Barnes' deflected effort falls into his path, but Arfield is thwarted by Bournemouth goalkeeper Artur Boruc who is off his line quickly and bravely to smother the danger.

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

We feared for the state of Harry Arter's hamstring earlier on, but he is still out on the pitch, seemingly recovered.

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

2 - Junior Stanislas has scored in consecutive Premier League games for the first time in his career. Opener.

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

Bournemouth's Charlie Daniels links up with Marc Pugh, with Daniels jinking in from the left wing but his shot is well off target, always rising.

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

Straight down the other end we go and a chance for Bournemouth's Marc Pugh, who finds himself free in the penalty area, 15 yards out.

Pugh gets the ball caught under his feet and can muster no power in the shot, which is straight at Tom Heaton. A pass to the free Josh King to Pugh's left would have been a better option.

At the other end, Sam Vokes, under pressure 18 yards out, fires a half volley well over the top.

CLOSE!

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

That's the best chance for Burnley so far and it falls to Scott Arfield, 25 yards out. He is in the middle of the goal but drags his left-footed effort just wide of the post.

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

Bad news for Bournemouth as Harry Arter, with no players around him, pulls up and needs some medical attention for what could well be a hamstring injury. One to monitor.

Into the top half

Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

Bournemouth are level on points with West Brom as it stands now.

GOAL - Bournemouth 1-0 Burnley

Junior Stanislas

It has taken 25 minutes to have a shot on target, but when we do it is in the net.

The ball is played forward by Lewis Cook and Junior Stanislas is skillful enough to take the ball on his chest, outsprint a Burnley defender and, with Clarets goalkeeper Tom Heaton not in the best of positions, he can slot the ball into the bottom corner.

Bournemouth 0-0 Burnley

An end-of-season, job-done feel to this game so far. Twenty minutes in, shots on target none.

At least it is a nice sunny day in Bournemouth. Probably a few people wishing they were on the beach at the moment.

Bournemouth 0-0 Burnley

Burnley have not had a shot on target yet and they have a half chance when Jeff Hendrick has the ball 25 yards out, but he looks for a pass and can only find a home defender and the opportunity is wasted.

Bournemouth 0-0 Burnley

I gave it the big build-up, and not much has happened for five minutes or so.

Burnley are aiming to win their second game away from home this season, following their 2-0 win at Crystal Palace when last on the road.

Bournemouth 0-0 Burnley

Another half chance for Bournemouth.

The Vitality Stadium is not the biggest of grounds, but there is still no excuse for clearing the stand.

That is what Bournemouth captain Simon Francis does, as he leans back and skies his 20-yard effort high, high, high, over the bar. And the stand.

Bournemouth 0-0 Burnley

This is looking like it is going to be a good one.

Bournemouth attack down the right wing and Josh King releases Junior Stanislas and his low cross is aiming for Lys Mousset in the middle, but only an excellent sliding challenge from Kevin Long denies the forward. The ball goes for a corner, but it comes to nothing.

KICK-OFF

Bournemouth 0-0 Burnley

And we are under way. Burnley immediately have the first chance but George Boyd prods one wide from the edge of the penalty area.

The players have walked out on to the pitch and some of the Bournemouth players are accompanied by their children. A nice touch and it will make for some great pictures for the family photo albums.
