Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson smashed home a wonderful second half volley to give his side a much-needed 2-0 home win over West Ham United in their English Premier League clash on Saturday.
His strike partner Joshua King scored the second goal after Wilson gave the home side the lead with a thunderous volley in the 54th minute.
With West Ham attacking and Bournemouth content to play on the counter, Wilson almost got a second in the 71st minute.
But this time his first-time shot came off the foot of the far post and rolled to safety.
The visitors continued to leave space at the back as they desperately chased an equaliser.
And King was able to slot the ball into an empty net after a superb counter-attack to secure all three points for Bournemouth.
Elsewhere, Newcastle United moved out of the relegation zone and dropped Cardiff City into it.
An unlikely double by Fabian Schar earned them a crucial 3-0 victory at St James’ Park.
An afternoon that began with unpopular club owner Mike Ashley being booed by disgruntled home fans ended on a brighter note as Rafa Benitez’s side took maximum points.
It was Newcastle United’s third home win this season.
After five games without a league win, the visit of Cardiff had the feel of a key relegation battle and Schar’s 24th minute opener eased the tension around the ground.
Finding himself in an advanced position the Swiss international centre-back drove in from near the touchline and curled a superb shot past Cardiff goalkeeper Neil Etheridge.
It was Schar’s first goal for Newcastle United since joining from Spanish club Deportivo La Coruna.
And, having got the taste for it, he doubled his side’s lead when bundling the ball into the net from a Matt Ritchie corner just past the hour mark.
Cardiff offered little in response apart from the odd flurry and Schar was not far away from claiming a hat-trick when he headed off target from another Ritchie corner.
Ayoze Perez added some late gloss, tapping in Newcastle United’s third in stoppage time from Salomon Rondon’s cross.
Newcastle United climbed to 17th with 21 points, one place above the drop zone while Cardiff are in 18th spot, with 19 points.
