AFC Bournemouth: Rantie comes good to see off Terriers

Bournemouth Echo: WINNER: Tokelo Rantie WINNER: Tokelo Rantie

TOKELO Rantie was the toast of Dean Court after bagging his first goal in front of home supporters to settle in Cherries’ favour a tight encounter with Championship rivals Huddersfield.

Rantie, the club’s record signing, came off the bench to net the winner as Eddie Howe’s men recorded a deserved victory – their second home win in eight attempts.

The South Africa international latched on to Eunan O’Kane’s incisive pass before firing past Huddersfield’s inspired goalkeeper Alex Smithies.

But for Smithies, Cherries could have been out of sight by half-time, the stopper pulling off three superb saves to keep the score at 0-0.

In a contest played in atrocious conditions, Lewis Grabban’s 55th-minute penalty had given Cherries the lead, only for Calum Woods to level with a finely-taken strike just four minutes later.

However, Rantie, on as a 69th-minute replacement for Andrew Surman, restored Cherries’ lead just three minutes after coming off the bench with a fine finish.

Manager Howe kept faith with the team which had performed so admirably against Liverpool in Saturday’s FA Cup clash with the only change coming on the bench.

Ryan Fraser, ruled out due to a minor hamstring problem, was replaced by Josh McQuoid, while Marc Pugh made his 150th league appearance for Cherries.

The Terriers were without Adam Hammill and James Vaughan, two of the chief protagonists when Cherries suffered a 5-1 defeat at the John Smith’s Stadium in August.

Striker Vaughan, who had bagged a hat-trick, and roving right-back Hammill, who had opened the scoring, were both sidelined by knee injuries.

Huddersfield’s new signing Nahki Wells tried his luck with a left-foot strike inside the opening two minutes, his effort pouched by Cherries goalkeeper Lee Camp low at his near post.

Cherries had an early penalty appeal waved away by referee Graham Horwood after Grabban had gone to ground under a clumsy challenge by Anthony Gerrard.

From the resultant corner, whipped in by Matt Ritchie, Cherries were thwarted by a top-drawer double save from Terriers keeper and captain Smithies.

The former England under-21 stopper parried from Elliott Ward after the defender had let fly through a crowd of players before Smithies then reacted quickly to beat away Harry Arter’s follow up.

Huddersfield fashioned a presentable chance following a move down the right with Woods glancing a cross from Danny Ward past Camp’s right-hand post.

Cherries were forced into an early reshuffle when Charlie Daniels limped off after just 14 minutes.

He was replaced by Ian Harte, who made his first appearance for more than three months.

Smithies again distinguished himself when he made another stunning stop after 19 minutes, diving full length to push Ritchie’s thunderous drive around the post with his outstretched left hand.

Although Cherries enjoyed a sustained spell of possession, Camp had to be on his toes to keep out Paul Dixon’s pot-shot midway through the first half.

Ollie Norwood wasted a free kick from a good position when he lifted his effort from 20 yards over the crossbar before Smithies scooped away a low drive from Simon Francis.

Pugh went close to breaking the deadlock following an extended half-time interval, the winger’s shot from a tight angle flashing narrowly past the upright just seconds into the second period.

Grabban, who had seen his previous penalty saved, made no mistake from the spot after Tom Smith had been judged by referee Horwood to have felled Pugh.

And Smithies was finally beaten, with Grabban sending the goalkeeper the wrong way and firing into the bottom corner to register his 12th goal of the season.

However, Cherries’ joy was short-lived as the Terriers restored parity just four minutes later through Woods, who netted a memorable maiden goal for the west Yorkshire club on his 72nd appearance.

Woods finished with aplomb when he rifled an unstoppable left-foot strike past Camp after creating the opening following a neat one-two with Wells.

Rantie, on as a 69th-minute substitute for Surman, struck just three minutes after coming off the bench, the South Africa international notching his first goal at Dean Court since his big-money move in August.

The 23-year-old, whose first goal for the club came in a 1-1 draw at Burnley, timed his run to perfection and fastened on to a slide-rule pass from O’Kane before squeezing his shot into the back of the net off the post.

Camp guided a Wells effort past the post before clutching at his near post a ferocious strike from the same player seven minutes from time, while Danny Ward skied a great chance in stoppage time.

Rantie should have added Cherries’ third and his second with virtually the last kick of the game, only for Smithies to deny him by diving at his feet after the striker had raced clear.

Excellent result for the team. Listening on Cherries Player sounded like we finally got the rub of the green, sounds like they should have equalised near the end but the glass half full people will say only the conditions stopped Rantie getting a 2nd in the last minute.
From the commentary suspect Daniels is out with a hamstring so the Wiggins story might have further to run but I notice he wasn't in the Charlton squad tonight. Injured?

P.S. Oxbog keep quiet!

No comment from me yet, as I've just returned home. Game changed when Howe dared to change his tactics and went 442. I think Rantie scored with his first touch. I have to say, that the boy has speed. Richie had another off day. He had a row with Elphick in the first half. Seems not all well with him at the moment. O'Kane was trying his heart out. Not very convincing, but a welcome three points.

Good performance in awful conditions. We never stopped working.
Not enough shots on goal to test the keeper but other than that a very hardworking effort and hopefully ranties confidence returns.

Great endeavour from the lads tonight on a quagmire of a pitch. Very difficult conditions for both teams but some of our football especially first half was immense. Three great saves from their keeper in the first half , having said that Camp made some crucial saves for us. Well done TK and well done Eunan for a slide rule pass to set TK up. That is exactly the pass he will thrive on. Great 3 points for the boys on the back of a massive performance last Saturday. Bring on the Foxes.UTCIAD

When did it ever go to 442, when Rantie came on Grabbs was sat in mid field, was he not?, I'm glad TK has finally scored but I have to say he positioning is absolutely terrible, why does he refuse to stay on the half way line or last man, the dance at the end let him down should have been a goal or at the very least a shot on target, Ritchie was good tonight, Pugh done well but you can't play the fancy footwork in those conditions,
Glad of the points and happy the game actually played the full 90,

Have always thought Rantie has great skill and lightening speed and his time would come. Hopefully his goal will give him the confidence to do what he's good at.

Why is Cook on the bench? Before his injury he was MOM on quite a few occasions and now doesn't get a look in. If it is between Cook and Elphick it would be Cook every time for me and in my honest opinion Harte is not good enough.

Great win, so chuffed for tk.

For those of us that braved it (cos we weren't playing Liverpool) it wasn't a great spectacle but hugely enjoyable. Difficult to be negative but Ritchie needs to get back to his best, Arter needs to show some composure if he wants to be centre midfield and Pugh - you can't just do your one trick on a lake !

Part from that it was great. UTC.......

Well done TK a very good goal, I have said several times on here that I think we should judge TK next season when he has had a pre season and settled in a bit more, if he can play how he did last night coming off the bench then he will be a threat for the rest of the season from the bench, let's not get carried away as he scored that fantastic goal at Burnley and there has not been much from him since, weather that's his fault, the system we play or anything else, last night will do him the world of good with a good goal the crowd singing his name, I think he will do it for us but more patience needed I reckon. Well done TK you've given us a glimpse of what we can look forward to seeing from you

I understand your comment, many will feel the same, and your pretty much right. but there were ST holders missing, plus, that's four home games on the trot, people can't always afford to go, and that's without mentioning the weather... Oh, I just did!!
Afcbpete: I understand that it is difficult for many people to afford 4 home games on the trot but that isn't really the issue. There were many people moaning about not being able to get a ticket for the Liverpool match, they could have gone to the game last night.
Most season ticket holders I know lend their tickets to others when they can't make a game for what ever reason. So that's not really an excuse.
'Fair weather' supporters rank alongside the 'glory hunters' in my opinion. However, for me, the main issue is that Bournemouth is a large town with a population of over 250,000 people, even more when you bring in Christchurch, Poole, Wimborne etc. I would guess that there are in the region of 80,000 people in the area who like, love, watch and play football. They have Sky Contracts to be armchair supporters or buy their kids Chelsea/ManUre/Liver
pool kits etc. Where are the majority of them week in week out? We will never be able to justify a bigger ground on the basis of the occasional 'one off' tie against so called 'big clubs'.
To justify a bigger ground, and thus reducing the disappointment many felt trying to get Liverpool tickets, we need sustained support week in week out. The club and team are not there just for when it suits people. The football loving people of Bournemouth need to be there for the club.

Rant over and now onto Rantie. For the likes of Nat and those who have constantly whinged about how much the club paid for him etc may I suggest you watch(or listen) to the post match interview TK had with Kris Temple. It is available on the club's website or through YouTube. You may lear to realise what a quality bloke he really is.

Difficult conditions last night so the team dug out a great result. The type of result that indicates we'll do just fine this season.

I enjoyed the game and admired the players ability to control the ball in the rain and mud. It was played in a great sporting spirit with a surprising number of away supporters from 250 miles away on a Tuesday evening adding to the atmosphere. Rante is an exciting player and was so close to a second goal, his speed is awesome and he can get round a number of defenders. Its been said he needs to adapt to the English game and I think under Eddie's guidance he is doing that as last night proved. I hope he now goes on a scoring run and then he will be big news. Bring on Leicester, hope the rain holds off from now. I shall definitely renew my season ticket as I have done for many years, win or lose Dean Court is a great place to be ... great football in great company ... UTCIAD!

Hardly a rant, more a question of the truth. I was more making a case for the usual 9,000 or so who have been coming along. Those complaining about lack of a Liverpool ticket, were never likely to turn out on a filthy Tuesday evening to watch Huddersfield, and add that to my previous post, and you have a low gate, but I was surprised quite how low it was certainly. I also agree with what you say about season tickets, but there were spare seats near me, that were unused season ticket holders, they're not always taken up, and as I said, some may well of decided against it because of the weather for whatever the reasons, their's to know I suppose. But yes, we do need a bigger stadium if we're to progress, but that's a post for another time :)

A good game in terrible conditions last night, we dug in well against a very good Huddersfield team. So pleased for TK getting his first home goal I still think the midfield needs to give him better service so often you see him pointing and start to make a run for the midfield to stop and pass sideways or backwards. On the attendance note yes it was a miserable night yes we have had a lot of home games but with a area population (Poole to Christchurch) of 400,000 and we struggle to get 10,000 I'm surprised the place is not made of plastic. To all the armchair fans try watching football on a 110yrd screen instead of a 50" one you might just be surprised haw good it is. To the fans that made it last night respect to you.

Good to see rantie get off the mark at home, you could see his confidence shot up straight after. Great pass from o'kane and about time we slotted one of those types of passes in. I fear o'kane may be bought either this window or in the summer, a mate of mine went to his first match last night with me and put him a class above the rest in his assessment. Rumour has it Simeon Jackson keen to return to English football, a loan move or permanent deal would be good to sneak in.......? Millwall are interested though.

Why is Cook on the bench? Before his injury he was MOM on quite a few occasions and now doesn't get a look in. If it is between Cook and Elphick it would be Cook every time for me and in my honest opinion Harte is not good enough.
In my opinion Cook could be on the bench until the January window closes, there was huge interest from Premier clubs prior to his injury, I wonder by keeping him out of the action curbs the interest, a coy move by EH if this is the case

not sure why he gets picked week in week out,

Last night's results put Saturday's performance into some perspective. Pretty much the same Liverpool team swept aside Everton with Sturridge and Suarez rampant. They were not able to do that last Saturday and had to work harder by all accounts to beat us than to beat Everton, who managed only 5 corners and were by the BBC described as having been thrashed. Furthermore on Saturday our defence made a better job of policing Suarez, Sturridge and Gerrard plus the rest of the Liverpool players, many of whom will be turning out for their countries in the World Cup Finals, whilst the midfield and forwards ran Liverpool ragged for the first half and some of the second.
Meanwhile in terrible conditions lst night we managed a 2-1 home win on a pitch which looked sodden and difficult to play on, altough nothing like the Dean Court pitches I can remember seeing in the 1960s, when the only grass to be seen by this time in the season was out on the wings, the penalty area was beaten mud and Billy Coxon, built like a tank at left back almost literally ploughed up and down the pitch!! How times change....

Meanwhile in terrible conditions lst night we managed a 2-1 home win on a pitch which looked sodden and difficult to play on, altough nothing like the Dean Court pitches I can remember seeing in the 1960s, when the only grass to be seen by this time in the season was out on the wings, the penalty area was beaten mud and Billy Coxon, built like a tank at left back almost literally ploughed up and down the pitch!!

Great win, so chuffed for tk.

For those of us that braved it (cos we weren't playing Liverpool) it wasn't a great spectacle but hugely enjoyable. Difficult to be negative but Ritchie needs to get back to his best, Arter needs to show some composure if he wants to be centre midfield and Pugh - you can't just do your one trick on a lake !

Part from that it was great. UTC.......
aiways said Pugh is a weak link.
not sure why he gets picked week in week out,
no speed, cant tackle, cant cross, cant shoot, cant head the ball.
all he can do, is cover for Daniels and beat a man 3 times
Oh come on... Credit where credit is due..... Pugh is pretty good at diving to win a penalty too....
