Wilson went close early on through a header and at the other end Aboubakar Kamara also saw a header fly just inches other Asmir Begovic‘s crossbar.

Bournemouth then won a penalty kick as Andre Marriner believed Wilson had been fouled by Timothy Fosu-Mensah in the box and the Englishman picked himself up to slot the spot kick home down the middle. 1-0 to the Cherries.
