Bournemouth came back from 3-0 down as they produced one of the comeback football results of the weekend in the Championship. Joel Piroe opened the scoring in the sixth minute before doubling their advantage in the 12th minute. Cyrus Christie made it three in the 58th minute before Keiffer Moore scored his first Bournemouth goal in the 72nd minute. Dominic Solanke pulled another back in the 81st minute before Moore scored the equalizer in the 90th minute. The result meant that Fulham would have to wait a little longer to lift the Championship.
Swansea’s Russell Martin: “Kieffer Moore should get sent off in the 73rd minute. I don’t like moaning about refereeing decisions, but he’s elbowed Flynn (Downes). Ben Cabango coming off is a massive moment for us. We had probably the smallest back three playing against the biggest front three players. They take our most dominant player out aerially, and then it’s some key moments really. The third goal, it’s a push on Flynn. These are just clear decisions. We should win the game at 3-0 up. But it’s a different feeling to Reading (when Swansea led 4-1 on Easter Monday) before drawing 4-4, it’s not a mentality problem. We’re playing a team who are where they are in the league, fighting for everything.”
Bournemouth’s Scott Parker: “Immense spirit, desire, passion – all the words you commonly hear coaches say they want in their team. We showed that in abundance. We started very slowly against a very good side and we had to go foot to the floor and be brave. At 3-0, you probably think take your medicine and regroup, but I am very proud of the team. To come back from 3-0 down was massive for us. Something you need from a team comes within, and my team has shown that consistently this year.”
