In Numbers: Best stats from Stoke win


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth secured their ninth win of the season yesterday evening, with a 1-0 victory away at Stoke City. 

Dominic Solanke got the only goal of the game six minutes into the second-half to ensure the Cherries go into the weekend top of the table. 

There were plenty of good stats to come out of the game, with the best detailed below: 

- Dominic Solanke bagged his ninth goal of the season as he netted the winner at the bet365 Stadium last night. 

- Our victory last night was the first time that Stoke had lost at home this season, having won five and drawn one of their previous six games in Staffordshire. 

100 - Jack Stacey had a 100% tackle success rate at the bet365 Stadium. 

- Yesterday was our sixth straight clean sheet on the road, a new club record. Ken Bird (1947/48) Ryan Allsop (2012/13) both kept five in a row in their respective seasons. 

9.42 - The clean sheet also means it's now 9 hours and 42 minutes without conceding away from home. 

7 - Gary Cahill won seven aerials in last night's game, more than any other player on the pitch. 

13 - We're now unbeaten in 13 league games, with victory against Huddersfield on Saturday enough to equal another club record. 

549 - There were 549 supporters cheering us on at Stoke yesterday evening - fantastic support for the lads! 

- Last but not least, the win saw us move six points clear at the top of the Championship, with some teams still to play this evening.
