Huddersfield Town were humbled by Bournemouth today as a Callum Wilson hat trick handed the Cherries a vital three points.
Town started the game the better of the two sides, but a Wilson brace in the five minutes before the half hour mark handed the hosts a valuable two-goal cushion.
Simon Francis' red card changed the complexion of the game just before half time, but Town could not hold the hosts who went on to net another two - through three-goal hero Wilson and midfielder Harry Arter.
