Fletcher praises Cherries boss

The Mariners, who snatched a half-time lead through a Nathan Jarman header, were reduced to 10 men when Danny Boshell was sent off for a second bookable offence before Bournemouth equalised through Liam Feeney. Joe Widdowson was sent off in stoppage time for a second yellow card.

"I suppose it was written in the stars and my winning goal was the stuff fairy tales are made of," said Fletcher. "It was certainly the most important goal I've ever scored.

"When I came back to this club in January, we were in serious financial and relegation strife and there was barely a smile on anyone's face.

"But Eddie Howe's appointment as manager and the way we have turned things round in the past couple of months has been quite remarkable.

"To come back from the backwaters of Conference football with Crawley Town and score the winning goal in front of a passionate 9,000 crowd was something dreams are made of."
