Bournemouth kept up the pressure on Fulham as they produced one of the comeback football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Josh Bowler opened the scoring in the 37th minute before Jamal Lowe equalized in the 86th minute. Just when it looked as if both teams would share the points, Siriki Dembele scored the game winner in the fifth minute of stoppage time.

Managers Reaction

Blackpool’s Neil Critchley: “Football can be a cruel game sometimes. I’m really disappointed because we’ve just taken a top team in the division right to the wire. We deserved more I thought, in what were very difficult conditions. I’m so proud of all the players – they didn’t deserve that result. We looked confident and overall I thought we were as good as them, but that was a cruel ending to the game. We controlled most of the play, relatively well anyway, and we matched them for most of the game. Maybe you need that bit of luck in front of a goal sometimes.”

Bournemouth’s Scott Parker: “The lads deserve great credit for the way they showed all that heart and craft right until the end. We really showed our quality in what was a big game for us. It was an exciting finish of course, but also it’s a relief to get over the line like that. Overall, looking back at the whole game, I think we deserved the win. From start to finish the lads were superb.”
