Cher­ries find Marc

Daily Mirror - - ENGLAND V PAKISTAN -

More­cambe 1 Bournemouth 2

MARC WIL­SON’S fine de­but fin­ish helped Bournemouth bat­tle past im­pres­sive More­cambe in a proper EFL Cup tus­sle.

Max Gradel gave the Premier League side the per­fect start as he beat Barry Roche from the edge of the box af­ter seven min­utes.

But Cole Stock­ton equalised just min­utes later for the Shrimps.

Jim Bent­ley’s team are at the top of League Two and it showed as they played with plenty of char­ac­ter and flair to more than match Ed­die Howe’s men.

Af­ter half an hour, Benik Afobe’s 20-yard ef­fort was well saved be­fore Tom Barkhuizen thrashed an ef­fort against the post in first-half stop­page time that would have given the home side the lead at the break.

Bournemouth im­me­di­ately bossed the sec­ond half though, and Wil­son’s (above) long-range strike capped off a de­cent de­but as he beat Roche from 25 yards with a won­der­ful ef­fort to fi­nally get the Cher­ries’ sea­son up
