Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe was delighted after the club picked up a club-record six goals in the 6-1 win over Hull City on Saturday at the Vitality Stadium.
Charlie Daniels opened up the scoring for Bournemouth in the 5th minute. Ryan Mason tied things up in the 34th minute, but the Cherries responded well. Steve Cook retook the lead for the home side in the 41st minute and before the half was over, Junior Stanislas had made it 3-1 from the penalty spot.
Stanislas netted his second of the game in the 65th minute to make it 4-1. Hull were abysmal at the back, and Mike Phelan will be having nightmares about his first game as permanent Hull manager. Callum Wilson made it 5-1 in the 83rd minute before Dan Gosling capped off the scoring with two minutes remaining of regular time.
Manager Eddie Howe was not only pleased by the amount of goals scored, but the way they responded after Mason tied the game for Hull.
That’s the unique thing about this football club,” Howe said.
“We haven’t been in the Premier League for very long so when we do good things, invariably it hasn’t been done before – that’s one of the great things about this job.
“The most pleasing thing today, despite scoring a number of goals and playing very well, was the ability to bounce back after conceding the first goal.
“The players didn’t let that disappointment linger. They went and scored some good goals before half time and that two-goal cushion was very, very important.”
