Fogden rocket fires Cherries

Wes Fogden's stunning 20-yard strike on the stroke of half-time earned Bournemouth a 1-0 victory over Brentford and their first success in eight matches.

Signed from non-league Havant & Waterlooville last autumn, Fogden picked up a loose ball on the right of midfield and cut inside to unleash a terrific left-footed shot into the top corner.

Fogden's third goal of the season gave Bournemouth their first triumph since early February when they beat Exeter 2-0.

Bournemouth deserved to win a poor-quality affair between two out-of-sort teams and ought to have scored before Fogden's eventual winner.

Harry Forrester's headed goalline clearance denied Steve Cook a goal, Shaun MacDonald had a stinging shot saved and Wes Thomas hooked a shot wide.

Brentford, who suffered a fourth defeat in five matches, wasted one golden chance early in the second half when Niall McGinn shot wide of a gaping goal after Simon Francis had halted Forrester's surging run.
