Bournemouth gave their automatic promotion hopes a big boost as they produced one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Jaidon Anthony opened the scoring in the 19th minute before Jefferson Lerma doubled their advantage in the 31st minute. Dominic Solanke sealed the three points a minute after the restart. They extended their lead over the third-place to six points and are eight points behind leaders Fulham with a game in hand.
Huddersfield’s Carlos Corberan: “The worst thing I can say is it’s very easy to explain the game. Individually and collectively, Bournemouth was better than us. There was a big difference between the sides’ performances. I think Bournemouth not starting well maybe made us take risks in the press that left us open. After they scored the goal it was difficult to be compact after halftime. We tried to be aggressive and we conceded the third goal. I think we took risks where if you win the one v one you get rewards but if you don’t it lets them attack open spaces and you’re going to suffer. When the players got fatigued, they started to play worse.”
Bournemouth’s Scott Parker: “It was arguably one of our best performances of the season in every facet. We stuck to the plan and then executed it and were very clinical and fluid. It was a big result but a massive performance from us. Huddersfield is on the good side but we were too good for them, I think that’s fair to say. Today was the first time we got an all-around performance from start to finish. To come here where Huddersfield has done so well and do that is a massive boost for us so we need to take that.”
