Bournemouth manager Parker: Solanke brilliant against Blackpool

Bournemouth manager Scott Parker has praised Dominic Solanke for his "brilliant" performance against Blackpool.

The former Liverpool and Chelsea striker scored a brace inside 20 minutes in the 2-2 draw at Vitality Stadium.

Asked about Solanke's performance against Blackpool, Parker said: "It was a great header in the last minute, a good save from the keeper.

"There was another one where he's gone through.

"I thought Dom was brilliant. Really pleased for him, two goals.

"If he's being critical, and he will be no doubt, is that maybe he should put the other one away. But overall I thought he did really well."
