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.
