AFC Bournemouth: Ritchie at the double as Cherries sink Glovers

Bournemouth Echo: DOUBLE: Matt Ritchie DOUBLE: Matt Ritchie

MECURIAL Matt Ritchie netted twice as Cherries ended their Dean Court win drought in style following an emphatic 3-0 victory over Yeovil today.

Ritchie’s double, coupled with a stunning Eunan O’Kane strike, also saw Cherries register back-to-back Championship wins for the first time this season.

Eddie Howe’s men had been bidding to halt a four-match winless home run and effectively had the points wrapped up after scoring three times in 16 second-half minutes.

Ritchie, who returned last month following a long injury lay-off, set the ball rolling when he despatched a venomous drive past Glovers goalkeeper Marek Stech five minutes after the break.

And the winger quickly took his tally to five goals in six starts when his delightful clipped effort found its way past Stech, possibly with the aid of a deflection.

O’Kane capped another excellent individual display with his first goal in the Championship, the midfielder completed the scoring with a low drive after 66 minutes.

The only downside for Cherries was a fifth booking of the season for Harry Arter which will rule him out of Sunday’s clash against Ipswich.

The teams traded early chances with Liam Fontaine heading wide following an Ed Upson corner and Ritchie’s effort failing to trouble Yeovil goalkeeper Marek Stech.

A sweeping move from Cherries, started inside his own half by Harry Arter, ended with the midfielder just failing to get on the end of a Charlie Daniels centre.

Cherries went close to drawing first blood after eight minutes when Andrew Surman’s bullet header from a Ryan Fraser cross was punched away by Stech.

Surman then had a penalty appeal waved away after he had gone to ground under a Joe Edwards challenge before the Glovers also went close to breaking the deadlock.

Ishmael Miller, on loan to Yeovil from Nottingham Forest, bustled into the area and saw his shot from a tight angle well saved at his near post by Cherries goalkeeper Lee Camp.

Stech had to be on his toes to beat away a Ritchie header from another precision cross from Fraser with Lewis Grabban blazing the rebound way off target.

Grabban was crowded out by Stech and two defenders after he had been put through by Ritchie, the winger pouncing on James McAllister’s mistake to set up the chance.

The Glovers gave the Cherries defence a couple of scares when Miller and Joel Grant worked in tandem to create two half chances, which both, ultimately, came to nothing. Stech clutched Arter’s stinging free-kick and then pawed away Elliott Ward’s glancing header after the defender had dived full length to meet a Daniels cross.

Ward then burst into the box a second time, only to curl his effort narrowly wide of the post, before Stech got down smartly to keep out Grabban’s low drive.

Referee Craig Pawson took centre stage on the stroke of half-time, the official chalking off a Ward strike after deeming Tommy Elphick had fouled as he tried to meet Fraser’s corner.

Cherries broke the deadlock early in the second half when Ritchie was on hand to rifle an unstoppable drive past Stech after latching on to the loose ball following good work by Fraser.

The Scotsman linked with Daniels before embarking on an electrifying run into the Yeovil 18-yard box, the ball eventually coming back to Ritchie after Fraser’s shot had been blocked.

Ritchie showed great awareness and skill to double Cherries’ lead seven minutes later, even if he may have had a slight helping hand from Yeovil defender Shane Duffy.

The winger spotted Stech marginally off his line and lofted a delightful left-foot effort towards the top corner, his shot appearing to glance off Duffy before finding the back of the net.

O’Kane then posted his contender for the goal of the game, the midfielder finishing with a composed left-foot shot following a surging run which took him past three defenders.

Surman fired over the crossbar from O’Kane centre before a last-ditch clearance denied Shaun MacDonald a tap in after Ritchie had again caused havoc in the Yeovil 18-yard area.

Ritchie and Simon Francis both went close to adding to Cherries’ lead before Upson hit the post late on for the Glovers with goalkeeper Lee Camp keeping his first clean sheet for the club.

Without taking anything away from Ritchie, I thought o Kane was Man of the match today

It was an all round performance but I too was surprised that O'Kane did not get MOTM I supposed Ritchie did as well so I am not going to hold it against him.

Both Euan and Ryan when they get their head down you know that they are going to cause havoc and they did.

Bring on Sunday UTCIAD

Great result, well played, obviously been working on our shooting at last, deserved some luck at home with them hitting the post twice. Also good move to be fair by EH to take off Harry before he was sent off, although I thought unlucky with the booking his reaction was typical Harry, played well until then though. 3 more points on Sunday would be welcome. UTHCIAD.

Let's hope we can keep Matt through January and get a strong striker and a defender too.

Brilliant win, an even tougher game against Ipswich coming up but after todays performance I'm positive we can scrap it out for three points.

We seem to be winning when we need to win, good 2013 indeed.

Great win, fantastic return for Matt Ritchie, long may his form continue. Pleased for Camp keeping a clean sheet, will help the goal difference come down. Couldn't care less about Cardiff, I'm sure they wouldn't be giving a toss about us if we'd lost today, what the scummers do is of no importance to me.

What impressed me was the relentless hard work the team put in today,
they never gave Yeovil a chance on the ball....even with 10 minutes to go Matt Ritchie chased one of their players a good 40 yards,it epitomised the whole teams display,with good form in our past 4 games it has convinced me even more that a play-off spot is achievable as only 6 points adrift,my only regret is that Rantie did not get on the score sheet to boost his confidence as no one can fault his desire to do well when he plays.

What a great advert this match was for football in general.Struck me how all our small players( Eunoch/Rich tea and Private Fraser etc) did so well today , mind you I also thought Ward played a blinder.

Fair play to Yokel they contributed to a good game and that BIG centre forward of theirs looked menacing at times( but then disappeared in the second half)....we could do with some one with his build.......

Just a shame about Lippy Arter- when will he learn ?

Either that, or they can take the acclaim as pr@t of the year!![/p][/quote]Without taking anything away from Ritchie, I thought o Kane was Man of the match today A lot of season ticket holders were not aware that the FA cup tickets are on general sale, has any one else fallen foul of this, I for one couldn't get my normal seat[/p][/quote]Man of match was Okane for me because I expect Ritchie to play like that every game anyway, I know we all see different things in a match and have opinions on players but Okane was brilliant today. I didn't realise cup tickets were now on general sale either so I hope I can get my season ticket seat tomorrow[/p][/quote]O'Kane was brilliant today. My MOM. lionheart

The difference with yesterdays match than quite a few others is that we managed to finish. We still missed a hat full of easy chances which i'm sure will be addressed in January. That said what a great performance against not the worst side we have seen this year. O'kane the most improved player this year who says we need a tank for a midfield general he absolutely bosses the midfield and has done for a while now. I was hoping for 9 points over xmas period we got 6 with 2 games to go. Keep the roller coaster going I say what a great season.
