Cherries earn big QPR win
Adam Federici completed 90 minutes while Brad Smith completed 70 for the AFC Bournemouth under-21s as a largely young side recorded an impressive 3-0 win away at Queens Park Rangers.
Federici in particularly impressed, saving an early penalty as well as making a number of good saves as Emerson Hyndman, Mikael Ndjoli and Mihai Dobre all scored.
The first real action of the game came when the Aussie stopped the opening goal after three minutes, with his excellent low save to stop Jay Emmanuel-Thomas’ penalty.
14 minutes later, the Cherries had the lead when Hyndman was able to fire in from close range.
The second came a minute before the interval and Ndjoli scored his second goal in his last two games, latching onto a ball at the back post and finishing confidently.
A series of impressive Federici saves began the second half, before Dobre put the game beyond doubt on the hour mark.
The Romanian benefited from some excellent football around the box which Hyndman was pivotal to, before slamming in from in the area.
Some late R’s pressure and some more excellent work from Federici followed as the Cherries finished with a young side on the pitch.
