Hudson-Odoi earns Forest draw at Bournemouth

Neto of AFC Bournemouth fails to save a shot from Callum Hudson-Odoi of Nottingham Forest (not pictured), resulting in Nottingham Forest's first goal during the Premier League match between AFC Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest at Vitality Stadium on February 04, 2024 in Bournemouth, England. 

Callum Hudson-Odoi's sublime strike earned Nottingham Forest a much-needed Premier League point at Bournemouth.

The hosts took the lead after five minutes when Justin Kluivert prodded in at the near post from a corner.

But Hudson-Odoi equalised just before the break, beating Ryan Christie and Illia Zabarnyi before bending a right-footed effort into the bottom corner.

Bournemouth ended with 10 men as Philip Billing was shown a straight red in the 83rd minute for fouling Hudson-Odoi.

The draw means Bournemouth are up to 12th in the table while Forest move a point and a place above Luton into 16th.

The Cherries started the match brightly, winning two corners in the opening five minutes and scoring from the second one through Kluivert's close-range finish.

Despite going behind so early in the contest, Forest stayed in the game and defended doggedly.

Taiwo Awoniyi, in for the injured Chris Wood, was unable to take his chances as Nuno Espirito Santo's side looked to get back on level terms.

He lost his footing at the vital moment after being played in by Morgan Gibbs-White and then had a weak effort saved by Bournemouth goalkeeper Neto.

Former Chelsea winger Hudson-Odoi equalised with a classy strike at the end of the first half, but neither side could find a winner after the break with few clear-cut chances created.
