Bournemouth return into the top of English Championship standings after defeating one of their title rivals, Middlesbrough this past weekend.
Both teams were looking determined in grabbing maximum points, but it was the host that got a better start.
Bournemouth's aggressive display was rewarded after just 12 minutes when Yann Kermorgant opened the scoring from a penalty kick.
The home side struck again early in the second period when Harry Arter made it 2-0 on 48 minutes.
Bournemouth finally sealed all three points from their home tie, thanks to another effort spot kick, which this time, was converted by Brett Pitman.
