Wissa strikes in stoppage time as Brentford win at Bournemouth

BOURNEMOUTH, England : Yoane Wissa scored four minutes into added time to secure a 2-1 Premier League win for Brentford at Bournemouth on Saturday after a flurry of late goals.

Brentford remained 16th with 39 points, one behind Everton who beat Sheffield United. Bournemouth, with 48 points, slipped to 11th place after losing their last home game of the season.

Dominic Solanke found the net twice in an eventful first half but both efforts were disallowed.

Brentford thought they had won a penalty in the 74th minute when Ivan Toney went down in the box after contact with Illia Zabarnyi and the referee signalled for a spot-kick, but after consulting the VAR the decision was overturned.

The visitors took the lead 12 minutes later when Wissa controlled keeper Mark Flekken’s long ball and found Bryan Mbeumo who shot home from the edge of the penalty area.

But Solanke equalised for the hosts three minutes later, heading Marcos Sensei’s cross past the keeper for his 19th Premier League goal of the season.

The visitors restored their lead when Mbeumo ran up the right flank and crossed to Wissa, who made no mistake as he fired it past the keeper with his right foot from the edge of the six-yard box.
