MATCH CENTRE: AFC Bournemouth v Albion

7 May 2016

Baggies braced for Cherries clash (3pm ko)

ALBION will be backed by a sell-out following on the sunny south coast for the club's final away match of the season at AFC Bournemouth.

All 1,200 tickets were swiftly snapped up by Baggies fans who will be in full voice at the Vitality Stadium for the Barclays Premier League encounter (3pm ko).

The Baggies take on the Cherries today before wrapping up their 2015/16 campaign at home to Europa League finalists Liverpool next Sunday.

Albion travel south knowing that a victory would see them equal last season's tally of 44 points.

Pulis' side will be seeking revenge on Bournemouth, who claimed a 2-1 win at The Hawthorns in the reverse fixture a week before Christmas. Adam Smith and Charlie Daniels were on the scoresheet for the Cherries, with Albion's goal coming from Gareth McAuley.

The first ever meeting between the two sides was in an FA Cup tie at Bournemouth in 1955. The Baggies ran out 1-0 winners.
