Thanks for following, you can see all the reaction from a stunning win on afcb.co.uk!

Enjoy your weekends!


Well, what a win that is!

A hat-trick for Callum Wilson and a goal for Harry Arter.

Despite being down to ten men for the second half.... what a day!

87: Sub for us...

Harry Arter and Joshua King both come off.

Standing ovations as Dan Gosling and Lewis Cook come on.

84: Wilson completes the treble!

What a finish too!

Kingy did so well and hung on to the ball on the left, striding into the box, before squaring for Wilson who smashes in from in the area!

Hat trick hero!!




75: Into the final 15 minutes...

74: Our players...

Are putting in such a great shift today.

Ake takes a whack on the head and some of the lads are cramping.

It's been a huge effort with ten men.

68: Arter bags!

Huddersfield had the ball at the back after an attack but Arter pressed and harried and won it back in his typical fashion.

He was in a great area, could've squared to King or Wilson but went alone and smashed a low effort in to make it 3-0!! 

Great stuff!



65: Attack v defence...

Exactly as the title suggests, but defending stoutly.

Huddersfield having plenty of the ball but haven;'t created anything clear cut in this second half as yet.

60: Double sub for Huddersfield...

They're going for it.

Quaner and Sabiri, two frontmen, come on for Cranie and Kachnuga.

Could leave space at the back for us, but will definitely pose a sterner threat to the backline.

51: We're defending...

The fans are behind us but we're digging in at the moment as Huddersfield attack.

They're on the front foot with the extra man, but we're solid as it stands.

45: We're back underway...

Huddersfield going for it.

They've brought on a centre forward for a centre back, Danny Williams is off for Steve Mounie.

Come on lads!


Well, we're 2-0 up but down to ten men.

Two clinical Callum Wilson finishes see us two up, but that red card could change everything.

Either way we're in the driving seat, 2-0 up at the break!

45: Red card...

Franno is off for a second yellow.

He took out Van La Parra and we're down to ten men.

The referee didn't even give a free-kick initially, it's someone else in his ear that has made the decision.

45: Injury time...

Three minutes additional time.

44: Booking...

Tom Ince to be fair to him, dribbles away from three players with a wonderful piece of skill, but Arter drags him back and it's a clear yellow.

42: First sub for us...

Jordon Ibe went down a few minutes ago and received treatment.

He's now unable to continue, Adam Smith replaces him on the right, straight swap.

41: Save!

Daniels steams forward and crosses well to Surman on the edge and his right footed effort is tipped over!

Hungry for goals this season Surs!

Cool as you like!

35: Francis booked...

Van La Parra again causing problems down the left, he beat Franno and the skipper brought him down in a dangerous area.

Instant yellow from Lee Probert.

31: A great finish!

Andrew Surman take a bow, its a sensational ball through for Wilson!

He whips it round the corner for Wilson to finish first time with a lovely take.

It's 2-0 and after Huddersfield starting well, we've really grown into it!



Pughie's chop...

28: Booking...

Steve Cook dives in on Kachunga and picks up a yellow high up the pitch.

First booking of the afternoon.


Our last two Premier League goals have been scored from corners!

Ibe whipped in a high ball and Wilson was there to nod in from close range! Top stuff, 1-0 to us!!



20: Chance!

Kingy does well!!!

He gets in the box, holds off his man and looks to square for Callum who is waiting but a fantastic tackle stops it being 1-0 to us!!


Go on Kingy!

17: Still a spell of pressure...

Huddersfield have started well.

Van La Parra again has another effort but miscues in a really good area in the box.

We've struggled to get going, hopefully that will change!

12: Good opening!

Pughie slips is round the back for Wilson to steam onto and it's 2v2 in the middle with King waiting, but good defending ensures it not a goal from a threatening area!


11: Now a good block!

Van La Parra is having a great start to the game.

He's close to an opener, he skinned two men on the left and cut in on his right into the area.

It looks like his shot is going in, but Cookie got across to block!

10: That should be 1-0...

Scott Malone should have Huddersfield in front.

He steamed forward from full back, nutmegged Steve Cook and prodded one with no one around him in the box wide.

That's a huge let off - visitors on top.

08: Save...

Van La Parra again, this time his effort is well saved.

It's a good move from the travelling Terriers which reaches Van La Parra on the edge.

He curls it towards the left corner but Begovic palms it away.

Not the best of starts from us thus far.

06: First effort on goal...

After an even start, it's Huddersfield who get the first effort away.

Van La Parra curls a decent effort from 25-yards but it's straight at Begovic.

The visitors have probably had more of the ball in the opening exchanges.

01: Let's do this!!

Kingy gets us underway and we'll attack the Colmar Construction Ted MacDougall Stand.

Don't miss a beat with our live blog... go on lads!

The teams are out...

The pre-match handshakes are underway and the fans wait with baited breath.

We're almost underway...

Head to head...

Yes, that is a young Benik in the photo!

The head to head standings look in our favour in the history of this fixture...

Huddersfield have won just one of their last 10 meetings with us, having lost five and drawn four. Their only victory was the big 5-1 in the Championship in August 2013.

This is our first home league match against Huddersfield since August 2007, back in the League One days.

Did you know...

AFC Bournemouth against Huddersfield will become the 94th different fixture to have been played in all four tiers of English league football - one for the trivia lovers out there!

The gaffer has his say...

One to watch...

Aaron Mooy has been infuential in Huddersfield's attacking exploits this season.

But he could be one to watch as he could be fatigued after playing twice for Australia against Honduras.

The Aussie helped the Socceroos qualify for the World Cup, and starts straight away with the armband for the Terriers.

A sneak peak inside the dressing room...


It's in!

We're unchanged from the win over Newcastle...

Begovic; Francis, S Cook, Ake, Daniels; Ibe, Arter, Surman, Pugh; King, Wilson.

Another start for Callum?

After an industrious display against Newcastle United, Callum Wilson could be in line to keep his place.

And Asmir Begovic, speaking to the Bournemouth Echo had this to say on the frontman: "Having met Cal over the past few months, he is a great guy, a bubbly character and a very good footballer.

"He has put in a lot of work and hopefully the Premier League goal he deserves will come round very soon."

What has the boss had to say?

Eddie's assessment of the Terriers from yesterday's press conference:

"Huddersfield's style of play is their strength and we will have to face up against that.

"It's a dangerous game, any team in the Premier League deserves huge respect and we give each team the same amount of preparation time.

"They've not changed much this year and their management deserve a lot of credit for that."

What about the opposition?

Well, they're on a good run with recent wins over Manchester United and West Bromwich Albion.

But here's a stat that will hopefully fill us with confidence, they haven't scored a goal away from home since the opening day of the season against Crystal Palace.

Team news...

The manager revealed that Benik Afobe is back in contention after picking up an injury against Chelsea.

Junior Stanislas won't play, but Joshua King will face a late fitness test. King looked sharp at Newcastle but his back problem is still there, the manager will have a big decision to make!

A positive stat?

Again newly promoted sides at home, we're not bad...

We've played six games and won five, drawn one.

On top of that, we've got a goal difference of +14. Positive!!

It's matchday...

Welcome to Vitality Stadium this afternoon for another big game in the Premier League!

It's Huddersfield Town who'll make the long journey to visit us today... we'll have all the updates ahead of the game and every crucial moment in the 90 minutes here on the blog.
