Premier League: Bournemouth 2-2 Watford


Bournemouth twice came from behind to rescue a point against Watford in an entertaining 2-2 draw at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

The visitors took the lead midway through the first half as Christian Kabasele headed in from a corner, following a series of errors by the hosts.

Bournemouth equalised when Adam Smith sparked into life down the right flank, beating two men, including nutmegging Kabasele, before firing a low cross into the six-yard box which was swept home by King.

Troy Deeney exploited more poor defending from Bournemouth to restore Watford’s lead in the 64th minute, However, Afobe slipped a low finish under the goalkeeper with eight minutes remaining to equalise once more.

Bournemouth thought they had nicked a winner in injury time but Afobe’s close range effort was chalked off as Steve Cook had punched the ball into his path, which meant the spoils were shared.

Bournemouth have now won just one of the last seven games in all competitions, while Watford are winless in their last seven Premier League games.
