Jermain Defoe rifled home in the 74th minute to complete an impressive comeback as Bournemouth defeat Brighton 2-1 at the Vitality Stadium.
The Cherries earned a precious victory to end a run of four straight defeats. Eddie Howe's side fell behind early in the second-half when Solly March headed home past Asmir Begovic. However, the flow of the match changed when the manager brought on Jordon Ibe. Ibe set up the equalizer with a nifty backheel for Andy Surman, who cut inside and placed his finish cooly in the side netting. The goal shifted the tide of the match and set Bournemouth on their way to all three points, as Defoe fired a low strike into the far right bottom corner in the 73rd minute after he was slipped in by Ibe.
