Very Professional Performance
10th November 2012, 3pm
Over three hundred Cherries supporters made the trip, hoping to see Eddie Howe's unbeaten run in charge of AFC Bournemouth continue at promotion hopefuls Doncaster Rovers.
The home side had settled into life in League One quite well following their relegation from the Championship last season, they had been holding on to a play-off position before the game and had been one of the in form sides in the league.
A first half Harry Arter strike gave the visitors the lead, whilst a solid workmanlike performance limited Doncaster to just one effort on target all afternoon.
The 1-0 win means that AFC Bournemouth have now taken 16 points from a possible 18, sit 12th in League One, 5 points off the play-offs and 8 points from automatic promotion.
MOM - the whole team, really proud of them, a gritty 1-0 in Yorkshire what more can we ask for!
Second half I expected some sort of response from Donny but they seemed to lack ideas with Hume the only one who looked as if he could produce any sort of threat. Whilst not creating too manu chances I thought we still looked dangerous and Wes Thomas came very close after some nimble footwork just inside the box.
Absolutely agree that the team ran their socks off working really hard to close Donny down all over the pitch. Grabban and Arter stood out for me but I would agree the whole team deserve the credit.
Final point - great support today - hardly stopped singing throughout the match. Their support on the other hand was very poor but then we ensured they didn't have much to get excited about!
We were very organised when they had possession, with the whole team running their socks off, but even still I though Donny were very poor for a team chasing a playoff place.
