Solanke impressive as Bournemouth tame Birmingham.

Dominic solanke on target for Bournemouth

 

Dominic Solanke and Jaidon Anthony were impressive hitting late goals to claim a 2-0 win at Birmingham.

With last season’s fellow joint-top scorer Danjuma reportedly on the verge of sealing a move to Europa League winners Villarreal, Solanke’s classy 77th-minute finish put the Cherries ahead.

Former Arsenal trainee Anthony, 21, sealed the points by hooking home Bournemouth’s second after 87 minutes for his first professional goal.

Defeat was harsh on Birmingham, who had looked set for a fourth successive clean sheet and, indeed, created the better chances before Bournemouth’s late rally.

But Lee Bowyer’s side were left to rue missed chances as a Lukas Jutkiewicz header was ruled offside while Cherries keeper Mark Travers made three good saves.
