  • Eddie Howe's men suffer first defeat of the season

9:51pm

That's all for tonight folks. A disappointing defeat but not without positives. Roll on Saturday.

9:39pm

That was a result that seemed a million miles away at half-time. Particularly after Wilson opened the scoring, it looked like a Cherries win all the way. Shame about the chances that got away in the first half.

9:39pm

9:37pm

9:36pm

The home fans are heading for the exits.

9:35pm

Four minutes of added time.

9:34pm

Assombalonga has a great chance to nmake it 3-1 but Camp is equal to the task.

9:32pm

9:32pm

Fryatt booked for time-wasting.

9:31pm

You've got to hand it to Forest, they have defended much better in the second half.

9:30pm

Not long left now. Starting to get a bit frantic.

9:27pm

Reid tries to test Camp but his low effort lacks power.

9:27pm

Great work from Rantie to generate a bit of space on the edge of the area. The South African lays off to Pugh in space but the shot deflects into the side-netting.

9:26pm

Andy Reid chests the ball down and goes for the spectacular volley with his left boot, but it flies off-target.

9:23pm

Non-league update: Bournemouth Poppies 2 (Jacobs) Brockenhurst 2

9:23pm

On comes Tokelo Rantie for Harry Arter. Howe is going for broke.

9:22pm

Attendance tonight is 10,768.

9:21pm

On come Marc Pugh and Ryan Fraser. Off go Ritchie and Stanislas.

9:20pm

Non-league updates: Poole Town 2 (Whisken) Cirencester Town 1

Bashley 1 Cinderford Town 1 - hosts scored first but leveller came straight after. 

9:18pm

There's still time, but Cherries have been knocked for six here. Forest were battered in the first half and now they lead. Simply amazing.

9:16pm

And Forest lead at Dean Court...

Another deep cross catches the hosts out, this time from sub Hunt, and Fryatt rises high to nod in at the far post. Ouch.

9:14pm

Wilson attempts to get Cherries back in front but can only fire wide at the near post.

9:13pm

Non-league updates: Bournemouth Poppies 1 Brockenhurst 2

Wimborne Town 3 (Davidson) Sholing 0 

9:13pm

Out of nowhere, Forest have equalised. 1-1.

Skipper Tommy Elphick gives away a free-kick down the left flank and Andy Reid sends in a deep cross which Assombalonga heads low into the net. It looked like it might have taken a deflection because Camp was flat-footed.

9:11pm

Non-league update: Poole Town 1 (Roberts) Cirencester Town 1

9:09pm

Ritchie has been booked for time-wasting.

9:04pm

Ritchie sends in a delicious inswinger, Wilson flicks up in the air with his head, Kermorgant darts on to the loose ball and Wilson pounces as it drops. 

A scruffy goal but no less than Cherries deserve. 

9:02pm

Cherries take the lead and it's 1-0 at Dean Court!

8:55pm

More pressure from Cherries at the start of the second period. Still no goal as yet, though.

8:54pm

Non-league update: Wimborrne Town 2 (Webb) Sholing 0. 

8:52pm

Double change for Forest at half-time. Jack Hunt is on for Danny Fox and is playing right-back, with Eric Lichaj switching to left-back. Elsewhere, Ben Osborn has replaced £1.5million winger Antonio.

8:48pm

8:46pm

The players are re-emerging for the second half.

8:42pm

Poor old stadium announcer Mike Botto is having an absolute nightmare on the PA. The patchy sound is doing him no favours.

8:39pm

It looked very much like Cherries targeted Forest left-back Danny Fox in the first half and they had a lot of joy. Stuart Pearce has got plenty to run through at the interval.

8:35pm

Non-league half-times: Poole Town 0 Cirencester Town 1

Wimborne Town 1 Sholing 0

Bashley 0 Cinderford Town 0 

Bournemouth Poppies 1 Brockenhurst 1

 

8:35pm

Cherries had 11 corners in the opening 45 minutes. Forest had one. Cherries had 10 attempts at goal. Forest had one.

8:32pm

8:32pm

You can't fault Cherries. They are doing all the right things and should be ahead. With sharper finishing, they would be.

8:30pm

More terrific interplay between Smith and Wilson. The latter shows a lovely touch to feather into the path of Smith, but Darlow is out as quick as a flash to deny the defender from close in. Another corner.

8:29pm

Non-league update: Wimborne Town 1 (Griffin) Sholing 0. 

8:28pm

Michail Antonio gets half a yard of space down the left and squeezes in a cross that Assombalonga sends off-target with his head. That’s about as good a chance as Forest have created.

8:25pm

Danny Fox has been yellow-carded.

8:22pm

8:22pm

Think Eubanks might be an auto-correct issue...

8:22pm

Non-league updates: Bournemouth Poppies 1 (Bassiriki) Brockenhurst 1

Poole Town 0 Cirencester Town 1 

8:20pm

8:19pm

Midfielder Chris Cohen halts Stanislas’ surging run with a tremendous sliding tackle on the edge of the box.

8:18pm

Adam Smith and Matt Ritchie have been excellent so far. Very lively. Both willing to run at defenders and try things. Great to watch.

8:16pm

We've not seen a great deal from Forest in an attacking sense so far.

8:14pm

Former Cherries striker Lewis Grabban has equalised for Norwich against Blackburn, following up after missing a penalty. 1-1.

8:12pm

Cherries have already had eight corners and we haven't even played 25 minutes.

8:10pm

Lovely flowing move. Stanislas plays the ball to Wilson, who releases Ritchie into the penalty area and the winger brings a good save out of Darlow. He possibly should have done better there. Good chance.

8:08pm

Visiting fans: 'You're only here for the Forest."

8:07pm

It's wave after wave at the moment. Plenty of corners.

8:04pm

Cherries have upped the ante.

8:04pm

Michael Mancienne is adjudged to have fouled Callum Wilson on the right side of the penalty area. The angle is tight but Ritchie’s lovely curling effort smacks off the far upright, before Harry Arter’s follow-up hits traffic. So close.

8:02pm

Non-league update: Bournemouth Poppies 0 Brockenhurst 1. 

8:01pm

Smith darts down the right flank and plays a lovely one-two with Wilson, but the angle is against the full-back as he bursts into the area and Karl Darlow blocks his effort. From the resulting corner, Darlow gobbles up Eunan O’Kane’s speculative drive.

7:56pm

Forest really working hard to close the ball down in midfield at this early stage. Cherries have been forced backwards several times.

7:55pm

Cherries striker Josh McQuoid, currently on loan to Coventry, has put the Sky Blues 1-0 up at home to Barnsley in League One.

7:54pm

Cherries loanee Josh O'Hanlon has just had a goal ruled out for Poole Town against Cirencester Town at Tatnam. 

7:53pm

A short corner from Stanislas arrives at the feet of Matt Ritchie via Charlie Daniels, but the wide man’s cross is headed wide by Steve Cook.

7:46pm

7:45pm

The amount of fluorescent boots in football really is getting out of hand. Ah well, let's crack on.

7:42pm

Here come the players. Cherries in their traditional red and black stripes, Forest in all white with a red trim.

7:38pm

We'll have non-league updates for you tonight as well. Southern and Wessex League games will be covered.

7:33pm

Both teams have made an unbeaten start to the Championship season and Forest’s £5.5million summer signing Assombalonga opened his account with a brace in the 2-2 draw against Bolton on Saturday.

7:25pm

There's been some drizzle on the playing surface in the last 15 minutes. Should put some zip in it.

7:24pm

This is Adam Smith's first start in a competitive Cherries game since he started in the final game of last season against Millwall.

7:23pm

Cherries have not lost a fixture against Nottingham Forest in seven years and the teams’ previous encounter at Dean Court in April saw Eddie Howe’s men romp to a 4-1 success.

7:20pm

Reliably informed that Forest are playing a 4-1-3-2 formation tonight, with Britt Assombalonga and Matty Fryatt supported by Chris Burke, Andy Reid and Michail Antonio.

7:16pm

Eddie Howe has made two changes for tonight’s game. Adam Smith has replaced Simon Francis, who is understood to have dropped out of the squad with a slight hamstring strain. The other switch sees Saturday’s goalscorer Junior Stanislas come in for his first league start in a Cherries shirt, with Marc Pugh making way.

7:16pm

Good evening and welcome to Dean Court for Cherries' clash with Nottingham Forest. Potentially, it's a belter.

Unfortunately Was in London for the match , but watched the blog.
Are we experiencing déjà vu all over again! Last year I watched match after match where we had so many chances and never capitalised, that all changed when Yann joined and he clicked with Grabban .
I know the Huddersfield result showed we can do it against the right team, but for the last two games the opposition have had the defence packed waiting for every attack. Brentford came very close to scoring on the break.
But we have a great management team and have every faith in them and the team to have learnt the lessons ready for Saturday.
