Stanis­las’s late penalty sinks Palace

The Phnom Penh Post - - SPORT -

BOURNEMOUTH snatched a dra­matic 2-1 win over Crys­tal Palace as Ju­nior Stanis­las’s last-gasp penalty sealed the points at Dean Court on Mon­day night.

Ed­die Howe’s side took an early lead through David Brooks be­fore Pa­trick Van Aan­holt bagged a con­tro­ver­sial sec­ond-half equaliser for Palace.

Van Aan­holt looked off­side when he fired home, but Bournemouth hit back to main­tain their im­pres­sive start to the sea­son.

With three min­utes left, sub­sti­tute Stanis­las coolly con­verted a penalty awarded af­ter Ma­madou Sakho el­bowed Jef­fer­son Lerma.

The Cher­ries’ fourth win of the sea­son lifted them to sev­enth in the Premier League.

“It’s a mas­sive win for us. Palace have got some very good play­ers. It was all hands to the pump to keep them out,” Howe said.

It was Bournemouth’s first home league win against Palace since Novem­ber 1988.

“The penalty we gave away at the end was very dis­ap­point­ing,” frus­trated Palace boss Roy Hodg­son said. “I don’t know that Mama de­lib­er­ately tried to catch him, but it looks to me that he did.”

Palace stay mid-ta­ble af­ter their fourth loss this term.
