King strikes late to give Bournemouth win over Burnley

Sam Vokes

Sam Vokes believes the pressure has been lifted at Burnley but wants a strong finish to the season as he prepares to return "home".

Their last game which was at home against West Brom ended in a 2-2 draw.

Burnley have a chance to officially secure their place in the Premier League next season on Saturday, as a single point would make it impossible for Hull to catch them.

Despite the tension being eased, the Wales global has urged his team-mates to continue aiming high. As for Bournemouth, they shot into tenth and guaranteed a finish between eighth and twelfth come the end of the season next weekend. To get to that 40-point mark, there was a big sigh of relief, the tension was building. It was something we set out at the start of the season to achieve - survival.

That goal sparked the visitors into life as Canadian Scott Arfield went close on two occasions before the break.

"A lot was made of it, we got a fantastic win at Palace", he said of the wait for an away win.

In-form Vokes, who has scored three times in his last three games to take his tally to 10 for the season, began his career with Bournemouth having grown up 20 miles along the coast in Lymington.

Josh King's 16th league goal of the campaign soon followed though and fired Howe's men into the top 10. I think that this time the guests will try to continue a successful series of matches against the "cherry" and score points.

"I did my youth team term down there and got my first professional contract".

The Clarets did eventually settle into the rhythm of the game but midway through the first half they were undone by a direct approach normally associated with themselves.

In turn, signing a player like Gray, who wouldn't be too expensive, has Premier League experience and can find the back of the net with quality around him, it may well be a sensible move to add depth. I'm not egotistical enough to worry about myself even if we didn't win away, it was points on the board and getting the job done. He's one of the greats of the Premier League era and number one for me'.
