Narrow PL Cup defeat for Cherries
A late goal saw AFC Bournemouth under-21s' defeated 2-1 against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League Cup.
The Cherries took the lead through striker Mikael Ndjoli early on before Sylvain Deslandes equalised before the break.
An 87th minute effort from Morgan Gibbs-White condemned the Cherries to defeat at New Bucks Head - which sees Carl Fletcher's men sit on three points from their opening group games of the competition.
Ndjoli opened the scoring for the visitors who had made the journey to Telford after just 11 minutes.
Jordan Lee's excellent cross was touched by a defender into Ndjoli's path, with the Wolves stopper Harry Burgoyne making a low save in the area. But the rebound fell to the striker who kept a calm head with two defenders on the line to finish into the corner.
The hosts then stepped into the ascendency, with Michael Zyro hitting the bar and Aaron Ramsdale making a terrific stop to deny Gibbs-White.
But Wolves drew level when a ball from the left was met by Deslandes in the area and he sidefooted it into the bottom corner with two minutes until the half-time whistle.
The second-half started with the Midlands side on top, Shaun Hobson had to make a crucial block to thwart a Wolves attack, but a golden chance came in the 50th minute for the Cherries.
Connor Mahoney skinned his man and put in a brilliant cross for Kyle Taylor, but the midfielder - who was completely unmarked from eight-yards - mis-hit an effort and the ball flew over the bar.
Mahoney then went close himself moments later, when he cut inside from the left and smashed a low striker which whizzed agonisingly wide of the left post.
The pressure began to build from the hosts shortly after, but after another brilliant Hobson block and more rearguard action, Wolves found themselves ahead with three minutes to spare.
Ramsdale misplaced a pass and Gibbs-White latched onto it in a flash and confidently finished in the box.
It was late heartbreak for the Cherries, who moved down to third in the four team group following the defeat.
