After having very little to do in the first half Digby was called into action straight from the restart when he produced a double save of the highest quality. First he parried Cummings fierce shot only for the ball to fall for Hayter a few yards away. Digby flipped back to save his shot cleanly when it looked like a certain goal.
Bournemouth came close again three minutes later when Elliott sent a shot just past the post from the edge of the area.
It was our turn to come close next when Henriksen played Sean Parrish in but he scooped his shot over the bar when he could really have done better.
We were now starting to play football and getting behind the Cherries defence more. Both Dean Bennett and Andy Bishop were being given more space although Sam Shilton seemed to be struggling a bit.
It was through Bishop that Bournemouth's Tindall gained the first card of the night when again Bishop left him for dead and he had to resort to manhandling him to stop him.
From the free kick a goalmouth scramble ensued until the ball was cleared away by Bournemouth.
Although we were playing better in attack we were still having some heart stopping moments in defence through our own making. Twice the normally reliable Craig Hinton
played the ball back to the keeper when under no pressure and twice he mishit it. The second time it almost led to an own goal when he played it past the keeper and only just past the far post.
The Harriers had a genuine penalty appeal turned down on 70 minutes when Bo Henriksen tried to pass the ball into the box for Bishop but it was handled by Broadhurst. The referee waved away all appeals for handball from the Harriers players.
The end of the game was getting near now and it looked a good time for some substitutions. Surprisingly it was a poor one. Sorry Brit, but it was!
Drewe Broughton replaced the industrious Andy Bishop and Bournemouth breathed a sigh of relief. They responded by sending on the anagram Chukki Eribenne for their best player, Danny Thomas.
See, it's not just Brit.
What was really needed was for JJ to come on to give us that extra something to grab a goal but a few minutes later and it wouldn't matter anyway.
Henriksen fed Dean Bennett the ball on the right and as he sent in a cross there were Bo and Drewe both swooping in like a pair of dive bombers. Bo got to it first and sent the crowd wild with the only goal of the night.
Bournemouth were forced into action as they saw the point slipping away and sent on Foyewa and Holmes for Broadhurst and Hayter.
Again we made a strange substitution when Ayres came on for Shilton in an effort to swamp our defence ready for the Bournemouth onslaught. I thought Bournemouth were there for the taking and we could have increased the lead but then again I'm not the gaffer!
Luckily we did manage to hold on through some resolute defending against Bournemouth's best attacking spell of the night.
At the end we ran out deserved winners but if Bournemouth had played anything like Oxford did last week then it would have been a different story.
