Philip Billing once again proved to be the match-winner as Bournemouth secured one of the expected football results of the Championship weekend. Although the home side has been unbeaten this season, it was the visitors that took the early lead when Morgan Gibbs-White put them ahead early in the second half. Bournemouth drew level in a controversial fashion as they were awarded a penalty that Dominic Solanke duly dispatched. Billing then scored with a neat finish to condemn Sheffield United to their fourth away loss of the season.
Bournemouth’s Scott Parker: “I have been here now for three months and every day I am learning something different. We had a bit of adversity today. That was the first time we have been behind this season but the reaction of the players to that pleased me greatly. After we scored the penalty, I saw a group of men wanting to grab the ball, put it in the center circle, and go and win.”
Sheffield United’s Slavisa Jokanovic: “I am simply not blind. It was two joke decisions for both goals. I saw on the field that the challenge was outside the box and have seen it on TV since. The second goal was clearly offside. The officials put Bournemouth back in the game, it is as simple as this. If you ask me what I think, this is expensive. I’m not an average guy. Both teams worked hard. It was a quick pitch and we did not connect a lot in the middle.”
