Bournemouth come from two down to beat Nottingham Forest

Bournemouth came from two goals down to beat Nottingham Forest 3-2 in an entertaining battle between two newly-promoted Premier League clubs at the City Ground this afternoon.

Jaidon Anthony scored a dramatic 87th-minute winner for the Cherries, completing a remarkable turnaround which gives Bournemouth their second win of the season and their first since sacking Scott Parker earlier this week.

With caretaker boss Gary O’Neil in the dugout, it looked as though Bournemouth were heading for a certain defeat when Forest – the most active club during the recent summer transfer window – took a 2-0 lead into half time.

One of Forest’s most notable new arrivals created the first as Morgan Gibbs-White sent a cross into the box which fellow summer signing Cheikhou Kouyate headed home.

It was one of the stars of last season who doubled the advantage just before half time, with Brennan Johnson firing home from the penalty spot after VAR ruled that Lloyd Kelly had handled inside the box.

However, Bournemouth began their comeback six minutes into the second half when Philip Billing fired home a long-range strike to halve the deficit, and parity was restored shortly after the hour mark through Dominic Solanke‘s overhead kick – his 50th goal for the club.

Solanke turned provider for the winner too, stealing the ball off Scott McKenna before laying it on for Anthony to grab the dramatic winner.
