An injury-time goal from Jermain Defoe rescued a point for Bournemouth following a 2-2 against Watford at Vicarage Road.
The Cherries enjoyed the first chance of the game but were denied by the woodwork when Nathan Ake rose well to powerfully head a Junior Stanislas cross on to the bar.

The Hornets managed to work their way into the game as two attacks led by Jose Holebas and Will Hughes attempted to play in Troy Deeney, but visiting goalkeeper Asmir Begovic stood firm.

The pressure eventually proved too much for the away side, with a 13th-minute corner enabling Kiko Femenia to grab his first ever goal for Watford.

He struck a fantastic volley, with a slight deflection from Joshua King helping the ball tease its way past Begovic.

King forced his way through the Watford defence to get through on goal but Sebastian Prodl denied the striker with a last-ditch challenge to keep his side ahead.

Bournemouth grabbed the second goal in the 43rd minute after a penalty was awarded for handball and King fired home to equalise.

The Hornets pulled ahead again in the 49th minute after Roberto Pereyra slid the ball into the bottom corner.

The Cherries began to see more of the ball but struggled to break down the opposition’s backline as Callum Wilson did well to turn and find Jordon Ibe, but his shot was easily held.

But Defoe was to have the last laugh when he pounced on a loose ball in the 92nd minute to secure his side a 2-2 draw.
