Forest with great ambition – Pep

Jaidon Anthony came off the bench to give Bournemouth a 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest when they came back from two goals behind in a thrilling clash between the newly promoted Premier League teams on Saturday.

Cheikhou Kouyate and Brennan Johnson gave Forest a 2-0 lead at halftime, but Bournemouth put in a stellar second half performance, thanks to goals from Philip Billing, Dominic Solanke and Anthony.

With the score 2-2, Anthony scored the winning goal in the 87th minute as he coolly crossed a finish sideways past Forest goalkeeper Dean Henderson on a pass from Solanke.

Previously, Senegalese midfielder put Kouyate Forest ahead in the 33rd minute when he rose highest in the penalty area to land a header from Morgan Gibbs-White’s corner.

Forest doubled their lead before halftime when forward Johnson scored an icy penalty following a lengthy VAR review following a handball incident by Bournemouth skipper Lloyd Kelly.

Bournemouth reacted quickly in the second half, with central midfielder Billing finding the goal in the 51st minute with a stunning attack from around 30 yards away.

Forest lost a chance to add a third goal and it proved costly as striker Solanke made it 2-2 for Bournemouth in the 63rd minute, with a superb aerobatic effort that flew into the net via a slight deflection from Scott McKenna.

After a slow start to the game, Nottingham Forest broke the deadlock just after 30 minutes when Kouyate drove home a header from Gibbs-White’s cross. They doubled their lead just before half time when Johnson scored a penalty on Kelly’s handball. The second half was a very different story as Bournemouth controlled every aspect of the match. Billing got the comeback going with a brilliant long shot from nearly 30 yards out. Solanke then stunned the home crowd with a bicycle kick to level the game with half an hour to go. Super sub Anthony then scored with his first touch of the game on an error by McKenna to give Bournemouth all three points.
