Darlington 2-1 Bournemouth

Rob Purdie's stoppage-time penalty helped Darlington come from behind to beat managerless Bournemouth.

The Cherries led at the interval after Marvin Bartley crossed low for Danny Hollands to score from close range.

But Pawel Abbott, back after a long spell out with a knee injury, stepped off the bench to level after Steve Foster's pass split the defence.

And after Jason Pearce tripped Quakers substitute Franz Burgmeier, Purdie's spot-kick broke Bournemouth's hearts.
