ARNAUT DANJUMA took just 24 seconds to set Bournemout­h on their way into the play-off places.

Dutch destroyer Danjuma scored twice and made another as the Cherries routed lowly Coventry to pick up their fourth straight win. Boss Jonathan Woodgate admitted Danjuma was frustrated to be denied the chance to complete a hat-trick after being substitute­d late on.

Woodgate said: “He wanted to stay on to try and get his hat-trick but the team comes first. If something happened to him in the last five minutes here, I’d never forgive myself.

“He will have more opportunit­ies in his career to score hat-tricks, but the team is more important than an individual player being on two goals.

“A 4-1 victory is a good result because Coventry are a decent team and should be higher in the table.

“I thought we played really well. We played with a high intensity from the start and were difficult to play against.

“That is what I ask for – to start quickly and put the opposition on the back foot.”
