Grabban: Goal took wind out of their sails

Grabban: Goal took wind out of their sails

AFC Bournemouth striker Lewis Grabban was pleased with the part he played in the Cherries two first half goals at stadium:MK on Saturday.

The Cherries top scorer took a gamble on the possibility of the defender playing a back pass and his anticipation paid off as he received a poor pass before rounding the 'keeper to then calmly score the opening goal of the game.

Grabban nearly grabbed his second of the game but his strike was well saved, but with the rebound falling straight to Marc Pugh the Cherries still took a two goal lead into the half time break.

Harry Arter rounded off an excellent away performance with a stunning long distance effort to seal a 3-0 away victory.

Grabban told afcb.co.uk...

"You have to anticipate back passes all the time, I was fortunate enough to be able to meet it and go through the keeper. It was a nice goal to score.

"It took the wind out of their sails and although they had possession, they never got any momentum.

"I thought I`d got a second, but it was a good stop from the keeper. It is part of Pughy`s job to follow up and it was great to see him get the goal.

"We work on that and I`m happy whoever scores as long as someone does, so that goal was just as pleasing as mine.'
