Harte to take the free kick. 

It's all gone quiet here... 


Long throw Cook, hacked away, nervous frantic whsitles ring out around Pride Park.

Free kick Cherries 25 yards out. 

Cherries piling it on. Over 5 additional minutes already played. 




Great last-ditch challenge by Cook to prevent Sammon having a clear run on goal. 


Four minutes added time. 


89 minutes: Simon Francis (Cherries) Seemingly for dissent following a foul by Cook. 


Would love to see that tackle again, from our angle it looked debatable. 


Direct from the free kick, 20 yards out, centrally placed, bent round the wall, top left corner, lovely strike but Elphick will not be happy. 


Derby 1 Cherries 0 

Chris Martin 85 minutes. 


Elphick slides in on Will Hughes, insists he took the ball, looked a harsh one.

Cherries appear to have gone 4-1-4-1 now. 


Third and final change for Cherries: Shaun MacDonald replaces Marc Pugh on 75 minutes.

Ball swept out wide for Pugh to swing in cross for Kermorgant who glances wide at the far post. 


For Cherries: Ryan Fraser on for Matt Ritchie on 70 minutes. 


Hesitancy from Francis allows Dawkins in, play held up, ball drilled across the face of goal, not the best view of what happened at the far post but it was seemingly cleared off the line by Cook. 


Tigerish Grabban holding up the ball well, relieving the pressure on Cherries. 



Steve Cook down for a prolonged period but now back in action. 


Attendance at Pride Park: 27,306.

Rugby: Bournemouth 23 Canterbury 32. 


Ball in for Sammon, just evades the big target man. 

Derby have made a strong start to the second half. 


Hendrick's corner, flicked high and wide at the near post by Chris Martin. 

Arter back on the pitch. 


Harry Arter down in the Cherries box, looked quite distressed as soon as he hit the deck. 

Hobbling off at the moment.

Derby County 0 Cherries 0. 

End-to-end, entertaining game. 

Three good chances for Cherries, Derby gained a foothold since then but the visitors still dangerous on the break. 

Very strong performance from Cherries so far. 


Johnny Russell's blistering volley bravely blocked by Tommy Elphick who prevented anything coming from the rebound while on the deck. 


Well-worked move, Pugh stands up the ball for Elphick to glance a header wide. 


Rugby latest: Bournemouth 20 Canterbury 20. 

Penalty followed by a converted Alan Manning try for Lions. 

50 minutes played. 


Introcate move between Hughes and Martin sets up Bamford, wild shot from 20 yards flies high and wide.

Wimborne Town still 0-0 at home to table-topping Merthyr, visitors have missed a penalty. 


Non-league latest: Poole Town 1 (Steve Devlin) Corby Town 0. 


Cherries calm and composed under pressure, more than competing in this game and should be ahead. 


Derby's marauding full-back Craig Forsyth goes down in the penalty area under the challenge of Harry Arter.

Referee Mark Heywood quite rightly unmoved. 


Hendrick half volley charged down by someone in a host of bodies. Game opening up nicely, end to end stuff. 


Couple of goalmouth scrambles from corners for Cherries, Derby clear the danger for now. 


Great turn Grabban, darts into space down the left, forcesw low save from Grant from an acute angle, Rantie was well placed. 


Three good openings for Cherries, albeit one was slightly fortunate.

Visitors the better side so far but could rue those missed opportunities. 



Richard Keogh very nearly hands Cherries the lead with a comedy own goal. 

Lobbed his own keeper under pressure from Rantie, bounces marginally wide with the striker unable to retrieve the loose ball. 


Rantie spurns a great chance, good work from Grabban.

Ball fell kindly for the onrushing South Africa international who had time and space on the half volley from 12 yards but steered his effort wide with the goal at his mercy. 


Some last-ditch defending at both ends over the past few minutes. 

Great challenge by Simon Francis before Pugh's hanging cross gets flicked away from the lurking Ritchie at the other end. 


Cherries' first meaningful attack, decent burst down the right, ball cut back for Ritchie who pelts the base of the post from the right edge of the area. 


Half-cleared corner comes out to Eustace on the volley, going wide, Bamford just fails to get a telling touch as the effort bounces wide. 


Steady start continues for Cherries. 

They have been quiet going forward but solid enough at the back. 

Pressure without punch from Derby. 


Rugby latest: Bournemouth 7 Canterbury 15. 

30 minutes played.


Rugby latest: Bournemouth 7 Canterbury 8.

27 minutes played at Chapel Gate. 


Johnny Russell gets away from Francis briefly but the ever-present full-back does well to hold up his adversary. 

Seven minutes in, no shots from either side. 


Pretty tame start at Derby, nothing too spicy about the first five minutes. 


Rugby latest: Bournemouth 7 Canterbury 3.

Lions have a player in the sin bin. 


Corner to Derby inside the first minute.  Cracking atmosphere created by both sets of fans. 

Corner comes to nothing. 


As expected, it looks like 4-4-2 for Cherries. 


We're off! 


Ready to roll at Pride Park...


Wimborne Town's team v Merthyr Town: Harvell, Arnold, Oliver, Maybury, Costello, Blake, Griffin, Davidson, Stokoe, Gamble, Webb.


Bashley's team at Chippenham Town: Jones. Strickland. Roberts. Ansell. Lloyd. Bulpitt. Blackmore. Soetan. Joyce. Odam. Flint.


Poole Town's team v Corby Town: Thomas, Emmerson, Whisken, Dibba, Martin, Brooks, Pettefer, Devlin, Preston, Bennett, Chiedozie. 


Kick-off just round the corner at Pride Park, let's give you a bit of non-league team news while we wait... 


Cherries have become the Championship’s draw specialists in recent weeks, sharing the spoils in five of their past eight matches.

Eddie Howe’s men have only one win in that spell, but have also lost just two of their past 10 league outings.


County are unbeaten in six league matches and sit in third place, two points shy of the automatic promotion places. 


Derby County have yet to lose a Championship match to a side outside the current top seven and the Rams have failed to score in only one of their 10 home league match since Steve McClaren took charge in October.


Cherries will be looking to emulate their bright starts at Reading and Sheffield Wednesday by striking first at Pride Park this afternoon.

The Dean Court outfit are one of only five teams in the Championship yet to lose after scoring the opening goal this season.


Two changes for Derby. 

Jamie Ward, who scored the only goal of the game at Dean Court in November, ruled out through injury, as is Craig Bryson. 

In come Jeff Hendrick and Johnny Russell. 


So one change for Cherries, Andrew Surman replaces the injured Eunan O 'Kane who failed a late fitness test. 

Anticipating a 4-4-2 from Cherries today. 

Mohamed Coulibaly on the bench, if he comes on it will be his first appearance since September. 

CHERRIES: Camp, Francis, Elphick, Cook, Harte, Ritchie, Arter, Surman, Pugh, Rantie, Grabban.

Subs: Smith, MacDonald, Fraser, Coulibaly, Pitman, Kermorgant, Allsop.








Right, let's kick off your matchday live with a few images from our Richard Crease...

It looks like he's gone 4-4-2 again. Very strong looking team, it will be a close game against one of the best teams in the league. My prediction is 2-2, with Tokelo scoring again

Sounds like a fantastic start by Afcb listening on the radio, it's all Bmth but can't help feeling we are unlikely to score while on top
