TWO first half goals handed AFC Bournemouth a shock victory over SkyBet Championship promotion hopefuls Reading.
Two goals five minutes apart from Lewis Grabban and Matt Ritchie gave the Cherries a two-goal lead before Adam Le Fondre fired home Readings’ only goal in second half injury time.
Grabban opened the scoring, striking on the rebound following Reading goalkeeper Alex McCarthy’s save form Tommy Elphick’s initial attempt.
Ritchie doubled the visitors’ lead on 41 minutes when he drive found its way into the bottom corner of the net.
Le Fondre scoring from close range in the closing stages, but the Cherries held on for the three points.
