Cherries: Arter goal helps extend unbeaten run

HARRY Arter’s first-half strike proved enough to help Cherries maintain their superb unbeaten run against Doncaster Rovers this afternoon.

In a hard-working and solid team display, Arter’s third goal of the season handed Cherries a well-earned 1-0 victory at Keepmoat Stadium.

Towards the end of an even first half, Iain Hume fired wide with a rare good opportunity for the hosts.

And Rovers then paid the ultimate price when Cherries’ star midfielder beat home keeper Gary Woods after trying his luck from 20 yards.

Josh McQuoid saw a free-kick saved after the break while Hume tested David James from distance.

But Cherries, who produced arguably their best defensive display of the season, held on with few problems to make it seven matches without defeat since Eddie Howe’s inspired appointment.

Cherries boss Howe was forced into one change with Steve Cook drafted in at right-back for hip-injury victim Simon Francis. Wes Thomas, recently recalled from Portsmouth, recovered from a hamstring problem to earn a place on the bench.

The visitors, cheered on by a healthy travelling contingent from Dorset, started brightly.

Utilising width to stretch the Rovers backline, Cherries looked comfortable in possession and McQuoid was a particularly lively performer.

Lewis Grabban warmed the hands of Woods with an ambitious volley from 35 yards before the Rovers keeper was relieved to see Charlie Daniels’s curling free-kick fly narrowly wide.

A well-timed intervention from the impressive Cook did enough to put off Billy Paynter with the Doncaster striker poised for a free header from David Cotterill’s dangerous right-wing delivery.

The busy Hume fired a snapshot over from a tight angle before smart goalkeeping from James saw him quickly off his line to intercept Chris Brown’s knockdown ahead of the onrushing Paynter.

With Rovers now settled and looking more assured, the best chance of the half fell to Hume. James Husband got in behind Cherries down the hosts’ left flank before picking out an unmarked Hume, who failed to hit the target with a curling effort on the turn.

And that proved a costly missed opportunity when Cherries took the lead on 38 minutes. The goal owed much to the persistence of Arter and also to questionable goalkeeping from Woods.

Having shrugged off a weak challenge 25 yards from goal, Arter opted to try his luck from the edge of a penalty area, with little else on. The playmaker was rewarded when his left-footed effort rolled agonisingly beyond Woods and in off the far post, with the keeper appearing slow to get down.

That knocked Rovers, who had been threatening to gain the upper hand, and Cherries saw out the remainder of the half with no alarm.

Hume headed over an early free-kick after the break after Daniels had been deemed, somewhat harshly, to have obstructed Cotterill.

Arter’s accuracy deserted him when his sweet right-foot drive failed to test home stopper Woods, who then saved well from McQuoid’s nicely-struck free-kick.

Howe opted for fresh legs by introducing Thomas for McQuoid, with Lee Barnard operating in a deeper role as Cherries were made to work increasingly hard to protect their lead.

James comfortably gathered Hume’s powerful 20-yarder before referee Darren Bond waved away Rovers’ appeals for a penalty after David Syers had gone to ground.

At the other end, Thomas lashed a shot into the side netting after a decent spell of pressure from Cherries.

For all Rovers’ possession, they found themselves restricted to shots from range, with James rarely called into serious action.

And solid Cherries comfortably answered the questions the hosts posed to ensure their excellent run continued.

Quite excellent. I wansn't expecting 3 points today. Well done boys and to the 343 that made the effort. Just goes to show what a manager does to a group of players, doesn't it?

Another very impressive performance from the Cherries today and a vital win against a Doncaster side who will likely be play off contenders. Well done to the team and management for coming away from a very difficult place to go with all three points!
Today was a real test of how far the team have come since Eddie & Jason's return and they passed it with flying colours. Listening to the commentary it sounded like our defence was solid for a change with the usually criticized Addison being man of the match, winning everything in the air. David James had very little to do.
Two home games to come now. Another six points and we'll be in touching distance of the leaders.
Also well done to the travelling fans who were clearly heard over the radio!

Fantastic result - 16 points from 18 since the return of EH and JT was confirmed surely exceeds even the most wildly optimistic expectations. Maybe - just maybe - the stayaway fans will roll up in numbers next Saturday; the home turnout of fewer than 5,000 for the Shrewsbury game on a benign autumn evening was desperately disappointing. This reborn team deserves much, much better.

We stayed away, but since the return of the golden duo have returned and glad we did. I can't believe anyone would still be staying away because of Mitchell. He's keeping his nose out and letting the manager get on with it, as it should have always been. Let's hope it continues that way. Well done Bournemouth. Decent football at last.

If ticket prices are a factor, then fair point. But harbouring pointless grudges and thereby denying oneself the opportunity to watch some entertaining football seems a little odd, to say the least.

I was at the game today, am staying in the midlands tonight, great support from the fans, defence was very good, Addison had Billy Paynter in his pocket, James looked solid, Cook was assured and apart from 1 effort just before half time we never looked in danger, in fact biggest problem was getting away from the ground due to road works.
The rovers fans were very depressed after the game and said they had been outplayed, the difference from say Coventry to today is unbelievable and the players came and saluted the fans at the final whistle, we are a united family club once more, thank you Sir Eddie Howe.
Ps Stewards were very friendly and allowed standing which always helps the singing.

Another great result, Howe long can we keep this going? The players seem to like the system and as a fan it is pleasure to watch. We just need a few more fans to turn up next week and show their support for an up and coming team. I still think Zubar and Tubbs should ge a bit more game time even if it is from the bench. Not the brightest idea to scrap the reserve fixtures with such a large squad but that is what happens with an in experienced manager. Now we pay the price with the lack of vital game time for squad players who will be needed in the future when injuries and suspensions catch up with us.

Woke up thismorning in Melbourne and put off looking at the result on my mobile. To be honest i was hoping for a win as always, being realistic though, i thought a draw would be the best we could expect. I even thougt that this could well be our first defeat. When i sparked up the mobile and saw that Doncaster failed to score my mind went to the draw. I was exstatic to see an away win. So loking forward to our trip to Wimborne this Christmas and a few visits to DC.

With two games at Home in four days, many will have to choose which match to go to and suspect that the gate on Tuesday will be higher than Saturday. These are hard times, Christmas just a few weeks away and for many their disposable income ( and 48% now longer have one) is under huge pressure. But another great win, marred a little by Simon Francis's injury inn training , which could keep him out for some weeks. Though Cook did a great job, in covering for him.

But another great win, marred a little by Simon Francis's injury inn training , which could keep him out for some weeks. Though Cook did a great job, in covering for him. Square Old Codger

a good result, and well done to everyone, but without intending to be critical there are two factors that need to be put right if we are to maintain this excellent form, 1. the main strikers need to improve their ratio of scoring, we are doing well with goals coming from midfield and defenders, but we have proven strikers who need to hit the target, 2. we must stop providing opponents with the opportunity to get a foothold back in the match by our tackling in and around the box, too many matches we are giving the referee the chance to give penalties against us. but having said that it is good too have a team that wants to play and get results again

One very good thing was the lack of free kicks we gave away for fouls.

We battled and got our just reward yesterday, Donnie are a team of quality players like us. As a supporter of over 30 years I have to say I am in dreamland, the town of Bournemouth has a fantastic football club.

Never been a big footy fan, last team I supported was AC Milan when I was living in Italy, but that was a long time ago. However, it has been fascinating reading about the turnaround in Cherrie's fortunes. What a difference a few weeks make. Might even come and watch the game on Saturday. Well done Bournemouth and congratulations to Eddie and Jason! As you guys say...UTCIAD
If it helps make you feel at home, Mangiafuoco, we've had much the same colours as that Athletics and Cricket club from Milan for most the time since1970. This change was made especially to please you.

This isn't merely football. This is AFC Bournemouth!

Need to keep grounded. Still a large squad, need a few more tactics on the pitch to finish off teams. The games ahead look like a great challenge, the more wins the more everyone will fear the mighty Bournemouth. And so they should.
