This game was also catching up and top game – that was already clear before the game. After all, Bournemouth received the third from Nottingham with Bournemouth.
Bournemouth had the direct climb in mind, but the better chances had in the first round of Nottingham Forest: Surridge hit the latte and Johnson’s shot in the 9th minute by Zemura on the line (30th). Bournemouth was the most dangerous through a cross that Christie narrowly missed (28th).
After the change of sides, the balance of power should shift, because from then on it was the home side who performed game. Solanke opened the second half and met the outside network (52nd).
The guests from Nottingham, on the other hand, acted passively and were increasingly pushed into the defensive. So Bournemouth came to further goal approaches, but initially Billings failed with his cross to Nottingham’s keeper Samba (66.). The goalkeeper was also on the job of Anthony’s shot (71.).

The spell broke seven minutes before the end of the end: Billing briefly performed a free kick and served the offensive player, who finished from the left position in the penalty area into the far corner (83.).
Nottingham reared up again, but even in the eight -minute stoppage time, the guests should no longer score. It was most dangerous shortly before the final whistle, when Surridge’s cross could just be clarified on the first post (90.+8).
After that was over and the climb of the AFC Bournemouth sealed. In the vitality stadium at home, people flocked on the lawn and celebrated the return to the Premier League. Nottingham, on the other hand, has to take the detour via the play-offs to follow Bournemouth to the highest English division.
