​Afobe brace helps Bournemouth defeat Yeovil

A brace from Benik Afobe helped guide Bournemouth to a 3-1 victory over League Two side Yeovil Town.

Yeovil took a surprise lead after 15 minutes when new signing Keston Davies blasted past Adam Federici in the Cherries goals.

Lys Mousset equalised fourteen minutes later when he neatly chipped the ball past Artur Krysiak.

Then it was Afobe's time to shine. In the 35th minute, the Congolese striker pounced on a loose ball in the box after Nathan Ake's header was fumbled.

Nine minutes after half-time, Afobe gave Bournemouth a two-goal advantage after finishing off some neat interplay between Marc Pugh and Ryan Fraser.
