Jamal Lowe scored a late winner to help Bournemouth produce one of the narrow football results of the weekend in the Championship. Tommy Smith gave the visitors the lead in the 20th minute before Morgan Fox was sent off in the 32nd minute. Dominic Solanke scored his 20th goal of the season in the 83rd minute before Lowe hammered in the winner with one minute left in the game.
Bournemouth’s Scott Parker: “It has been a big week for Jamal after his wife gave birth on Thursday. He has rounded off that week and there is no better feeling than scoring a winner. Three weeks ago Jamal was training on his own as he wasn’t in the squad but fair play to his resilience. He has shown his character and shows how quickly things can change for personnel.”
Stoke’s Michael O’Neill: “We were the better team until the red card, there is no doubt about that. We were terrific for how we played for 60 minutes with 10 men. We thought we had weathered the storm. It is never a red card and if it is a red card then Zemura’s tackle on Brown is a red card, they are exactly the same challenge. One’s a red card and one’s a throw-in – how’d you work that out? We had got them into a period where they ran out of ideas but then they overloaded us in the wide areas and eventually a combination of fatigue and concentration made us concede two goals.”
