A Callum Wilson hat-trick gave 10-man AFC Bournemouth a rousing victory over a below-par Huddersfield Town at the Vitality Stadium.

Despite dominating the initial exchanges, Wilson struck twice in a five-minute first-half spell to undo the good work done by David Wagner's side.

And although Town received a glimmer of hope with the dismissal of Bournemouth's Simon Francis just before the interval, they were unable to capitalise.

In fact it was the Cherries who continued to impress in the second period despite the man disadvantage – Harry Arter grabbing a third before Wilson rounding off the scoring.

Man of the Match

Scott Malone: Despite his mistake for Bournemouth’s third, the full-back was one of the rare positive outlets throughout.

The travelling 1,325 away fans never stopped singing their hearts out on a miserable afternoon on the South Coast.

Verdict

Regardless of refereeing decisions, it was a disappointing day for the Terriers with too many players way below-par.
