The jubilation on the touchline said it all as Eddie Howe was mobbed by Joshua King, who wheeled away after scoring his first Premier League hat-trick to earn Bournemouth a much-needed first win this year. King and Benik Afobe had missed first-half penalties before the Norway striker scored his ninth, 10th and 11th goals of the season in a character-building home win that lifted them six points clear of the relegation zone.
“It is relief from my perspective, pure relief,” Howe said. “We have gone back to basics and worked incredibly hard to try and turn things around. We still need to get to 40 points or whatever the magic total is as quickly as we can. There is no complacency to think we are not involved in a relegation battle.”
