  1. 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."

    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.

  6. Post update

    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.

    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.

    Bournemouth 3-2 Swansea

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

  10. Post update

    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.

  11. Post update

    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."


    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.

  13. 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.

    Bournemouth celebrate

    Bournemouth 2-2 Swansea

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

  15. Post update

    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. 

  16. Post update

    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."

  17. Post update

    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.

  19. Post update

    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.

  20. 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.
