AFC Bournemouth travelled to Birmingham on Friday night to take on Coventry City in the Championship live on Sky Sports.

The Cherries knew that a victory would put them top of the second tier of English football, until Saturday afternoon at least.

Jason Tindall was unfortunately without Danjuma who had picked up an injury ahead of the game, new loan signing Rodrigo Riquelme’s international clearnance didn’t come through in time for him to be involved and Joshua King pulled out of the squad late on with a “migraine”.

Goals from Jefferson Lerma and Dan Gosling were enough to secure the points and the victory.

AFC Bournemouth manager Jason Tindall told the Daily Echo

“I’m delighted we won the game and we are top of the league at this early stage of the season.

“I felt the guys deserved it with the performance they put in.

“I felt we played well at times tonight. I do still think there is a lot more to come and we’ve got some real quality players that didn’t feature tonight for different reasons.

“But it just goes to show that I feel we’ve got better with each game that we’ve played. It’s pretty much a new team in a sense that it’s playing and learning about each other.

“As the season goes on, I think we will continue to get better.”

With our man Danjuma out, you could be forgiven for wondering where our goals were going to come from. Solanke and Surridge huffed and puffed but no matter, Lerma and Gozza stepped up.
It’s fan-bloody-tastic to have goals throughout the team again. At this rate it’s surely only a matter of time before Lewis Cook gets one !
It’s great not to have to be solely reliant upon your strikers.
All goals count, even ones taken from outside the box. It looks as though our players have been let off the leash and we are reaping the benefits.
Excellent job so far by JT and his crew.

Your say…

Professional performance from our team, in control throughout the game.

Started the second half like the first with a quick goal

Then put the game to bed with the third.

Down to 10 men Coventry then had a struggle and our team just played the ball around, kept possession and took 3 well earned points.

Stats say it all:

Possession AFCB 63%

Shots AFCB 19 – Coventry 5

On target AFCB 10 – Coventry 2.

Top of the table, well done Jason, still unbeaten in the league. – Join the conversation, click here.
