Bournemouth   4 - 0   Port Vale

Bournemouth 4-0 Port Vale

Bournemouth 4-0 Port Vale

Bournemouth celebrated promotion in style in front of a bumper crowd of 9,055 as Port Vale's play-off bid suffered a huge blow.

Lewis Haldane hit the post while Brett Pitman did the same for the hosts, but the game came alive after half-time.

Pitman scored his 26th league goal of the season from Rhoys Wiggins's corner.

Alan Connell scored the second with a lob and the third from close range before fellow substitute Josh McQuoid wrapped up the win with a header.

The result leaves Port Vale two points out of the play-off places, with a game at home to Shrewsbury to come.


Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told BBC Radio Solent:

"In the second half, we upped the tempo and we showed what a good team we are. It was a really good team performance.

"The players have been magnificent since the start of the season and they've set their standards.

"The scenes at the end will always stay in the memory banks. They're very rare and you have to make the most of them."

Port Vale manager Mickey Adams told BBC Radio Stoke:

"It's hard to be critical of a group of players who have put us in the position that we're in.

"We never got to grips with their front men all day, we went deeper and deeper as the game progressed.

"I'm disappointed for our fans who have travelled down here in numbers and we thank them for their support. We live to fight another day and that comes next Saturday."
