Bournemouth 2-1 Notts County

Bournemouth came from behind to see off Notts County in an entertaining game.

Hamza Bencherif put the visitors ahead with a well-worked free kick which he finished with a powerful 25-yard shot.

But the Cherries levelled when Charlie Daniels's left-wing cross found Michael Symes, whose shot was blocked by Magpies keeper Stuart Nelson but Wes Thomas pounced on the rebound.

Jeff Hughes hit the bar for County but Shaun MacDonald's clever dribble set up Wes Fogden to win it for the hosts.


Cherries manager Lee Bradbury told BBC Radio Solent:

"The way we came back showed that we've got a lot of determination and grit about our play. I knew we would have to battle and I thought we mixed the game up well.

"Hopefully everyone will stop asking me about turning the home form around and we can concentrate on winning football matches.

"It's an absolute pleasure for me to be manager of this football club and for the board to put their faith in me is fantastic."

Notts County manager Martin Allen told BBC Radio Nottingham:

"We had some good chances. We played very well and the players were very committed.

"It was always going to be a tough game down here against a team that's just recently spent a lot of money bringing in some good players. They certainly weren't better than us, that's for sure.

"I think the commitment and the energy has been there from the players but in both boxes, these little errors have crept in and we've not taken our chances at the other end."
