Feb. 24, 2018
BOURNEMOUTH, England (AP) — Dan Gosling struck a late equalizer against his former club as Bournemouth fought back from two goals down to draw with Newcastle 2-2 in the English Premier League on Saturday.
Midfielder Gosling converted into the roof of the net in the 89th minute after Cherries substitute Adam Smith set up a tense final 10 minutes by halving the deficit.
Magpies striker Dwight Gayle looked to have earned the visitors three precious points on the south coast with two simple, first-half finishes, but they were made to pay for their profligacy, which included Jonjo Shelvey missing an open goal at 2-0.
Newcastle dropped to 15th in the 20-team league and is only two points from the relegation zone.
Mid-table Bournemouth has three more points than Newcastle.
