RYAN Fraser’s fortuitous second-half goal saw Cherries battle back to earn a share of the spoils from a 1-1 draw against Championship strugglers Yeovil Town today.

Fraser cancelled out Kieffer Moore’s first-half opener for the Glovers when Byron Webster’s clearance struck him and looped over Yeovil goalkeeper Marek Stech.

The point kept alive Cherries’ play-off hopes with four games of the season remaining, starting with an Easter double-header against Sheffield Wednesday and Ipswich.

Matt Ritchie squandered a presentable chance to fire Cherries ahead after just two minutes when he skied a shot high over the crossbar following a Lewis Grabban cross.

And James Hayter did likewise for the Glovers just two minutes later when he completely missed his kick with the goal gaping after Joe Edwards had centred from the right.

Fraser’s low shot was saved comfortably by Yeovil goalkeeper Marek Stech before Lee Camp clutched at the second attempt a thunderous drive from Moore.

However, Camp was powerless to prevent Moore from opening the scoring midway through the first half after Cherries had failed to clear a Jamie McAllister free kick.

The big striker, signed in the summer from Dorchester Town, seized on the loose ball and despatched a venomous right-foot drive into the top corner from 20 yards.

Grabban screwed wide from close range following a sharp turn inside the 18-yard box after Yann Kermorgant’s neat flick had picked him out. A speculative strike by Grabban at the start of the second half failed to trouble Stech before Moore fired a right-foot effort straight into Camp’s hands.

Shane Duffy’s glancing header from a Luke Ayling cross flew inches past the upright before Cherries’ appeals for a penalty fell on deaf ears following Duffy’s handball.

Cherries levelled after 59 minutes through Fraser, although there was more than an element of good fortune as the Scotsman restored parity with a fluke goal.

Stech was caught off his line and watched the ball loop over his head after Byron Webster’s clearance had struck Fraser before landing in the back of the net.

Cherries then survived a penalty appeal after Moore had gone to ground and were thankful to Camp for saving with his legs after Webster’s flicked effort from a corner had almost squeezed in at the near post.

Fraser ballooned a chance over the crossbar following a Simon Francis cross after 74 minutes, while Tom Lawrence curled a right-foot shot just past the post.

For a moment I thought I was listening to an old commentary of 4 months ago, wayward passes, missed chances! But then I looked at the table and realised that, even if we didn't play as well as we can today, we are still in 10th. place in the English Football 2nd tier!
If we don't do any better than that, this afcb team have still broken our club record for season's finishing position and we still have a player in the top 6 goal-scoring positions for the Championship. We still have a Manager and players figuring regularly in the Manager of the Month and Player of the Month nomination lists. And we still have one of the most loyal and good-hearted army of supporters around!
So now I am not so down-hearted about today's result :-)

3 Tough games in a week yielding 7pts, a very good return really. Another likely sell-out next week and a chance to press-on, after the players have a well earned rest.!!!

We have had an excellent season and we have surpassed our expectations
.
However, dropping points at Yeovil was no great surprise. They are fighting fort their lives and plus the fact that this was a local derby and we all know that league position and form just goes out of the window with these games.
.
We were without Arter and I don't believe that Grabban was fully fit and may losing Harte was another factor.
..
If we put all that I have said into the mix then dropping points was no surprise.
.
Just on my way back from Barnet, not a good game despite the score line.

I am very proud of what AFCB and staff at the club have achieved this season.

As I said a couple of weeks back, Brighton were always favourites for the playoffs. They have easy games left and their squad is better than ours.
They play slower out from the back, thus taking less chances at the back.
Todays match was always going to be a banana skin for us. We should be happy with the point.

That's ridiculous, why would you want to see Yeovil go down because of the size of their ground, you could argue that we should stay where we are because we'll have the smallest ground in The Premier League!!! I for one hope Yeovil stay up, except I'd of preferred it not being at our expense....

Yeovil had a good day today and it was great to see our team trying to the very end to win a hard fought game. They stop every charge forward with a silly foul and we kept tossing in crosses that we were never going to win against the tallest defenders in the world!

Interestingly early on in the season EH was getting some stick because he hadn't spent on players as much as Yeovil had. Well I know which manager got it right!

Though today's game didn't sound all that brilliant I am glad our football is not as bad as that witnessed in the game I just watched on TV (Gunners V Wigan) UTCIAD

After some of our recent performances , it ' s no surprise that we had a below par game today , but you have to give credit to Yeovil . ( Funny old language English , below par in golf is good ! ) 3 wins and a draw would make an interesting end to the season .

Fair play to Yeovil today they had a game plan for us and possibly deserved to win.Not sure how they are below teams like Milwall.We were lacklustre compared to previous weeks but stil in with a chance although I think Brighton will win the rest of their games.

A least its another point toward a record finish. While there is still a chance of the play offs we can keep on believing.
What ever happens now we know we'll be upsetting the 'big boys' next year.

Couldn't get a ticket for today so I took my son to MK Dons v Crawley, the kick and rush on display made me even more thankful for what Eddie has done since his return, and Tubbsy didn't even get on!
But what a stadium now they have the seats in the top tier!

Too many sloppy passes. Missed Arter and Pugh. Not sure what tactics would have been correct - hard to play on the ground as pitch poor and very bubbly - high balls not a good idea as their players are so tall. Yeovil played to their few strength. Gary got his tactics spot on with the squad he had at his disposal.
I did not like being jammed in on that terrace - I hope standing never comes back.

Afcb put a picture of the contract on Twitter last week, it was very clear that the scummers have to pay us 25% of any transfer fee, my concern would be that Man Utd buy him and Shaw together for 50 million and they would say that Lallana is only 10 million of the fee

I think Spurs were interested in The lama as well, so maybe a bit of a bidding war to push up the price. Shaw is a big Chelsea fan and is hoping for a dream move to Stamford Bridge where he will get champs league.

The tough games against Reading and QPR had taken there toll and the players looked tired. Yeovil clearly had done their homework and executed their game plan well and were probably unlucky not to take all three points, but the lads never gave up trying to win and we still have a remote chance of a play off place , though we will need to win all our games and have results elsewhere go our way. But it has been a great Season, what ever happens, good to hear too that the remaining games are sell outs - Eddie, Jason and the lads deserve that.

Without being patronising, Yeovil staying in the championship would be as big an achievement as us making the play offs, the first result I look for after leaving our games, they deserve to be in this division as much as the big clubs and I wish them all the best, as a club we will always have more in common with them than any big club, give me Huish Park over any of the big plastic stadiums any day, Up The Glovers!!!!

I have been a Bournemouth fan all my life, but have always thought that OUR attendances were not on a par with other teams. The 2011 census figures state that Yeovil has a population of just 40k, if they had an average of just 10% then that would be 4k. Bournemouth on the other hand has a population of 183k meaning we get less than 5%. If you were to add the Bournemouth conurbation then the pop' grows to over 400k.

The 2011 census figures state that Yeovil has a population of just 40k, if they had an average of just 10% then that would be 4k. Bournemouth on the other hand has a population of 183k meaning we get less than 5%. If you were to add the Bournemouth conurbation then the pop' grows to over 400k. twynhamob

What a great day out at Yeovil, great support great banter great occasion.
I for one will miss Yeovil as a day out because you do not get many chances to visit a rival just a few miles down the road.
The train journey was comical with the noddy bus on rails from the west station at Dorchester, literally standing room only, poor management from Great western, that is a contradiction in terms.
Still had a great journey.
No shame in the result we were a tired looking ream and Yeovil were a decent side, just a bad day at the office nothing more.
Still the best season and the best AFCB team I have seen.

Hard luck boys, two points lost but STILL one point gained, Yeovil were never going to be easy.

I see all tickets are gone for Good Friday so a full house and plenty of noise after a bit of a rest for the team should get us back on track. I am looking forward to it!

All the very best to Yeovil I would love to see them cling on in this league.

One of those days, we followed the coach in at 10 to 2pm, they got stuck in traffic so nothing went to plan! Agree we missed Arter today. They did a good job of spoiling the game and we never got in to it. Still on though and feel a lot better now seeing that nothing has really changed in the table - Leicester, repay the favour and turn up on Monday night! Utciad
Don't think Leicester will bother now , couldn't of seen them losing 4 1 at home a month ago . I hope I'm wrong ,

That's ridiculous, why would you want to see Yeovil go down because of the size of their ground, you could argue that we should stay where we are because we'll have the smallest ground in The Premier League!!! I for one hope Yeovil stay up, except I'd of preferred it not being at our expense....
Why don't you read it properly, he never mentioned the ground, just the pitiful amount in it !!

Yeovil had less than 5000 fans - in the championship ?
Is it my English or aren't you all concluding the same thing!! Size of the ground, attendance etc doesn't that boiled down to the same thing!

It seems to me that the point AFCBpete was making is that why should a team go down on the basis of the size of their ground/attendance in which case he understood the comment correctly. Bring on Good Friday UTCIAD
No nonno. You obviously weren't there. The ground was nowhere near full. Easily room for a few thousand more.

No nonno. You obviously weren't there. The ground was nowhere near full. Easily room for a few thousand more.
Unless I am up totally the wrong tree!! what I was defending was AFCBpete' argument that a team should be relegated simply because it has a small ground (though I accept that they could not pay their way because of it). True I wasn't there and I cannot evaluate the atmosphere nor how the match played out. It seemed odd to me that the initial comment should express gladness if Yeovil did go down simply because their ground is rubbish!!! any way we live to face another day and appreciate our position and achievement.
