    • 0'
      Watford take a 1-0 lead into the break over Bournemouth thanks to Christian Kabasele's headed effort in the 24th minute. The goal came against the run of play, but the Cherries' defensive problems have continued this afternoon to hand the Hornets control of the match.

    • 0'

      Mazzarri's men have lost four out of their last six matches, but did earn a point in their clash last week against Middlesbrough. They will need to display that resilience and more this afternoon at Dean Court.
    • 0'

    • 0'

    • 0'
      The Cherries put in a poor performance in their defeat to Hull City last week, despite taking the lead through Junior Stanislas. Eddie Howe's men collapsed in the second half, succumbing to their third defeat in their last six outings.

    • 1'
      We're underway in this Premier League clash.
    • 2'
      Fraser sends a looping ball down the right flank for Wilson, but Holebas clears well. However, the ball comes back into the box from Smith, forcing Prodl to send it behind for a corner.
    • 3'
      The Cherries fail to threaten from the resulting set-piece, allowing the visitors to bring the ball clear.
    • 4'
      Watford pile men into the box from a free-kick and after a mild scramble in the box the Cherries are able to clear the danger. The Hornets have a lot of big players in their line-up this afternoon.
    • 4'
      Deeney raids down the flank to get the better of Smith and he lines up a cross into the box for Okaka, but he gets too much on the ball, sending it out for a goal-kick.

    • 8'
      Cleverley makes an error as he heads the ball out for a corner under no pressure. The home side can threaten from this set-piece.

    • 13'
      SAVE! Wilshere knocks a ball over the top for Fraser's run. The midfielder heads the ball up and over Gomes, but the keeper does extremely well to get back and tips the effort over the bar on the stretch.
    • 15'
      The Cherries are beginning to take control of possession here and slowly but surely Wilshere is becoming influential in the contest.
    • 16'
      The home side lose possession and Deeney goes for the first time ball to Okaka, but once again Cook is there ahead of the Watford striker to quell the opening.
    • 17'
      Wilshere threads the ball through to Wilson in the box and the striker attempts to turn, but Holebas does enough to put him off by nudging him off the ball.
    • 19'
      SAVE! Space opens up for Wilshere in the final third and he blasts his effort towards the top corner, but Gomes makes a fine save to turn away his effort.
    • 21'

    • 23'

    • 24'

    • 24'

    • 26'
      Capoue goes down under pressure from King and the visitors have another chance to send men forward from the set-piece.
    • 27'
      The delivery from Kaboul is poor and it allows the Cherries to clear the danger. However, the threat remains from the visitors from almost every set-piece.
    • 30'
      OVER! Bournemouth have been taken out of their rhythm, but a loose ball falls the way of Wilshere on the edge of the box. He lines up his strike, but can only fire over the bar.
    • 31'

    • 34'
      WIDE! Mings' clearing header from a long ball lands only as far as Cleverley. The midfielder takes the effort on first time on the half-volley, only to smash his strike wide of the post.
    • 35'
      Okaka has made decent runs into the channels, but the ball over the top from Capoue has too much pace on it for the forward, trickling out for a goal-kick.
    • 37'
      The home side are lacking any sort of rhythm in their passing game, which is making them ineffectual in the final third.
    • 39'
      Okaka holds well at the point of attack against Cook and wins his side a free-kick. These set-pieces have caused the Cherries problems thus far this afternoon.
    • 40'
      Holebas sends the ball deep into the box from the half-way line, but Deeney can't bring the ball under control as it sails out for a goal-kick.
    • 42'
      CHANCE! Prodl gives the ball away straight to Stanislas, who surges forward and shoots from the edge of the box. His effort deflects up off the Austrian defender and loops over Gomes, but the keeper's reach saves the Hornets a goal as he tips the ball over the bar again.
    • 44'
      Bournemouth have had brief moments through Wilshere and then through Stanislas, but have not put the Watford backline under a sustained period of pressure.
    • 45'
      There will be one minute of added time.
    • 45'
      Stanislas and Smith combine down the right flank, and the full-back finds Surman in the box. However, he does not expect to see the ball land at his feet and misses the opportunity to swing his leg at the ball.
    • 46'
      Okaka makes a poor run to nowhere as Cleverley advances down the right. His short pass allows Mings to intercept and send his side back the other way on the counter.
    • 46'
      We're underway again at Dean Court.
    • 47'
      Stanislas wins a corner for the Cherries down the right, but his delivery is extremely poor, failing to clear the first man with his cross.

    • 48'
      Smith makes a great run into the box and picks out King with a quality cross to bring his side back into the game.
    • 48'

    • 50'
      Smith makes another burst down the right flank and he finds Wilson in support. The striker drives the ball into the box, but Capoue clears ahead of King.
    • 53'
      SAVE! Holebas weaves his way through the Bournemouth defence and he drills an effort at goal from the edge of the box. Boruc is forced to react and he does well to turn the ball behind for a corner.
    • 55'
      Holebas sends a low ball into the box and Cook miscues his clearance, slicing the ball up towards his own goal. Fortunately for him, Boruc is on hand to punch the ball clear with authority.
    • 56'
      SAVE! Fraser collects on the left flank and he cuts inside to shoot on his right foot. His effort appears to be creeping into the top corner, but Gomes makes a fine stop to keep it out.

      The Cherries are beginning to exert serious pressure on the Watford backline, enjoying a lot of possession in the final third.
    • 60'

      Cleverley puts his corner right on the money and allows Deeney to put Watford back in the lead.
    • 64'
      GOALLL!!!!! DEENEY PUTS WATFORD AHEAD AGAIN! Another set-piece is Bournemouth's undoing as Cleverley swings the ball to the near post and Deeney gets the better of Smith to head beyond a hapless Boruc. Yet again the Hornets score against the run of play.

      Wilson looks for the ball over the top, but he mistimes his run by a fraction. Frustration building for the home side.

    • 70'
      Holebas goes into the book for his foul on Wilshere.
    • 70'
      Strange decision from the visitors as Holebas plays it short to Cleverley and sees his effort charged down. WIlshere breaks for the home side and wins a free-kick to alleviate the pressure.
    • 71'
      King collects on the left flank and he tries an ambitious effort at goal from 25 yards. However, he scuffs his strike and it ends up going out for a throw-in on the right flank.
    • 73'
      Cook surges forward from the back and drills a low ball across the face of goal, but it goes harmlessly out for a goal-kick. The Cherries need a spark of quality here to get back on level terms.

    • 78'
      WIDE! Doucoure receives the ball 25 yards from goal and with little support he opts to go for goal. However, he can only strike his tame effort wide of the post.
    • 79'
      Kaboul goes into the book for timewasting.
    • 80'
      Wilshere makes a neat turn down the left and gets to the byline to send in a cross, but Prodl cuts the ball out in the middle.

    • 81'
      Pugh replaces Fraser for the home side.
    • 81'

    • 82'
      Surman capitalises on Kabasele's decision to hit the deck and picks out Afobe for his side's leveller.
    • 82'
      GOALLLL!!! AFOBE LEVELS! Bournemouth are back in the game and Watford aren't happy as Kabasele opted to hit the deck for some reason. He may have wanted the hosts to put the ball out, but Surman played on and threaded a pass through to Afobe. The striker beat Kaboul down the left inside channel and
