Lee Bradbury got his first win as Bournemouth boss as the Cherries saw off leaders Brighton 1-0 at Dean Court.
In front of a sell-out crowd the high-flying Seagulls had their wings clipped thanks to thunderbolt from Liam Feeney with 62 minutes gone.
The lively winger latched onto a perfectly-flighted Rhoys Wiggins cross to volley past the helpless Casper Ankergren.
Brighton's top-scorer Glen Murray thought he had scored seconds after coming on but his 68th-minute header was ruled out for offside.
He then missed his side's best chance - a sitter from 12 yards with 13 minutes to play.
