Incredible comeback for AFC Bournemouth as Cherries stun Millwall
AFC Bournemouth came from 2-0 down to thump Millwall in a fiery SkyBet Championship clash at The Goldsands Stadium.
The Cherries enter the international break full of confidence – having put two successive defeats behind them.
Speaking after the game, Bournemouth defender Steve Cook said: “Having had back-to-back defeats, we needed to respond and we have – which makes the break a bit easier.
“The table is looking good at the moment. We just need to get a bit of consistency.

“There were a few tired bodies out there at the end. It’s time to regroup and work on the things we need to.”
Martyn Waghorn and Liam Trotter had given the visitors a comfortable lead after just ten minutes of play. Ryan Fraser grabbed a lifeline for the Cherries just before the break with a fine finish.
Bournemouth grew in confidence after the restart – scoring three goals in a nine minute spell. Steve Cook’s headed effort drew the Cherries level – before Harry Arter drilled the ball home on his return from injury to give the hosts the lead.
Alan Dunne was sent off for the Lions for his second bookable offence after handling the ball in the penalty area. Lewis Grabban dispatched the penalty for his sixth goal of the season.
Substitute Brett Pitman scored Bournemouth’s fifth goal in injury time – again from the spot after Fraser was tripped.
