Has got Cherries in play-off shape
Cherries knew a point would be enough to propel them into sixth place.
But there was never any danger Woodgate’s men would settle for a draw and they got off to a blistering start with Danjuma breaking the deadlock straight from kick-off.
David Brooks raced down the right before crossing into the path of Danjuma, who gleefully slotted home from six yards.
Coventry were level just two minutes later thanks to a sweetly-struck 25-yard free-kick from Leicester loanee Matty James.
Brooks and Danjuma both came close to restoring Bournemouth’s lead before the
Dutchman doubled his and the Cherries’ tally 17 minutes before half-time.
Danjuma combined neatly with Philip Billing before squeezing his shot through the legs of Coventry goalkeeper Marko Marosi and into the far corner from a tight angle.
Brooks put the game out of Coventry’s reach with a cushioned finish from Danjuma’s pinpoint cross on 69 minutes.
