Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe was delighted with their 3-1 win over Brighton.
Bournemouth ended their six-game winless run in the Premier League as they claimed a valuable three points against fellow strugglers Brighton.
However, the hosts sparked into life just after the half hour mark, creating three chances in quick succession before Harry Wilson dispatched a low drive past Brighton goalkeeper Mat Ryan from 12 yards.
Callum Wilson's jostling presence contributed to their second goal, with the ball flicking off his marker Pascal Gross from a Diego Rico corner.
Wilson rounded Ryan to register his first league goal for 16 games and while Aaron Mooy scored a late consolation, Bournemouth held firm for their first league win at the Vitality Stadium since 2 November.
Howe said: "It's a nice feeling for everyone connected with the club. It was a hard game but we gave everything. The lads were flat out at the end which is all I can ask.
"The first 15-20 minutes were really difficult. We had to stay mentally strong but once we scored, the confidence came back and we started to flow. We almost didn't want half-time to come.
"We looked a threat and could have scored more. I'm delighted for Callum [Wilson] and for Harry [Wilson]. Set-pieces were a threat too.
On Wilson breaking his goal drought, he added: "It's massive. You need your strikers to score and you need them to believe they can score. He took it superbly. It was a decisive moment.
"Nothing was going to be decided tonight but it lifts us and gives us that belief. There's a lot more football to come so we need to back it up and commit to games every week."
