Dominic Solanke and Jaidon Anthony were on the scoresheet as they helped themselves to a win over Birmingham in the Championship. It was one of the better football results for Bournemouth as they ran out 2-0 winners despite Arnaut Danjuma being the butt of transfer rumors. Dominic Solanke put the visitors ahead in the 77th minute while Anthony sealed the win after his maiden goal on 87 minutes.
Right up to the goal, the match was on an even keel with Birmingham looking to keep their fourth clean sheet in a row. They created the better of the chances but failed to find the back of the net. Bournemouth keeper Mark Travers had a good game making three saves.
Birmingham’s Lee Bowyer: “[Solanke’s goal] was handball, he nudged it with his arm in front of him.” he added. ”It’s disappointing because I think we deserved more than that. From start to finish, we made it difficult for them, they couldn’t break us down – but the first half-chance they got, they scored. In the first half, we did really well, we moved the ball better, created some good chances, we were winning the ball in great areas and everything was going to plan apart from getting a goal.”
Bournemouth’s Scott Parker: “We’re stretched at the moment but this group of young players has been nothing but first class.” he added. ”They have worked tirelessly the last eight to nine weeks and if you work hard, you reap rewards – they deserve to be sitting on seven points and they deserve two wins and a draw.”
