West Ham nightmare Callum Wilson and Josh King hand Bournemouth first win of the year

BOURNEMOUTH ended their dreadful five-match run without a win and beat in-form West Ham 1-0.

Callum Wilson secured three points for the Cherries after netting his tenth Premier League goal in the second half this season.

Fans witnessed a mundane show in the first half, which finished with both teams failing to record a single shot on target.

But Bournemouth and West Ham came on the pitch inspired after the break, with scoring chances pouring in one after another.

Andy Carroll made a strong case for scooping the ‘miss of the season’ award after bizarrely firing the ball overt the bar from three yards out.

And it turned out to be a costly mistake, as Wilson fired the Cherries 1-0 up only minutes after with a thunderous strike, his sixth against West Ham and 10th of the season.

Josh King sealed Bournemouth’s win after an easy finish set up by David Brooks in extra time.
