Bournemouth   3 - 0   Plymouth

Bournemouth 3-0 Plymouth

Highlights - Bournemouth 3-0 Plymouth

Classy Bournemouth moved up to second spot in League One with a rampant display against cash-strapped Plymouth.

The Cherries dominated and only an inspired display from Argyle goalkeeper David Button kept the scoreline down.

Bournemouth went ahead on four minutes when slack marking allowed Danny Hollands to race through and fire home.

Liam Feeney crashed home a second, Marc Pugh's cheeky chipped penalty made it 3-0 after the break and the hosts, who hit the post three times, eased home.

Bournemouth's third league win from three games in 2011 was never in doubt from the moment Hollands finished low past the excellent Button from eight yards after being sent through by Pugh.

606: DEBATE
DistantGreen

That early goal set the tone for the afternoon and settled a Bournemouth side who could easily have been distracted by talk of manager Eddie Howe leaving Dean Court.

And it was easy to see why both Crystal Palace and Charlton are courting the Dean Court supremo after a performance which oozed quality throughout.

Plymouth were without leading scorer Bradley Wright-Phillips, who looks set to leave Home Park, but they were outplayed in all departments and barely threatened the home defence.

Yannick Bolasie had their best chance after the break but his fierce 25-yard strike, after a rampaging run, was tipped over by Shwan Jalal

By then the game already looked out of reach for Peter Reid's men and only some superb saves by Jalal's counterpart Button stopped the Cherries adding to their two-goal first-half tally.

The lively Pugh, Feeney were both denied by the visiting keeper before the break but Button's best stop saw him dive full length to spectacularly keep out a wonderful shot from Danny Ings.

Plymouth's best spell came in the opening stages of the second period but Pugh's cheeky 54th-minute penalty, after Onismor Bhasera felled Anton Robinson in the box, made it 3-0 and the Cherries then poured forward.

Button made further saves from Pugh and Feeney while Pugh, substitute Lee Bradbury and Michael Symes also hit the post in the closing stages.

But Bournemouth - playing in front of a season's best crowd of 7,589 - could not find another goal.


Plymouth Argyle boss Peter Reid told BBC Radio Devon:
"I wouldn't say (Bradley Wright-Phillips' absence) was why we got beat, I think they (Bournemouth) were sharper, quicker, stronger and we looked leggy.

"We've got to get on with it now as it's only hard work that's going to get us out of this situation and get us winning football matches.

"These lads have lost a few team-mates recently and it does affect them, but we've got to be professional and just go out there and win football matches."
