Bournemouth had been less Revolver | All the action from the casino floor: news, views and more than in the first half, although midfielder Andrew Surman blasted a 59th-minute free-kick into Villa's defensive wall and then almost immediately miscued a shot from a decent position. Bournemouth saw out the final minutes and Eddie Howe was even able to bring on Callum Wilson for a first appearance since he suffered a serious knee injury in October. The famous old stadium will host other fallen giants such as Leeds, Nottingham Forest and probably Newcastle next season and those supporters must all be wondering how it has gone so wrong. The Cherries, in contrast, moved onto 41 points and need just a draw to mathematically guarantee a second season in the top flight.

Matt Ritchie and Simon Francis worked it well on the right and Francis' low delivery was flicked in by Cook at the near post. Steve Cook scored Bournemouth's opener on the stroke of half-time. A broken team and club plodded through the half, going through the motions before being put out of their misery at the break.
