LONDON (Reuters) – Benik Afobe strikes scored his first goal for Bournemouth to lift his team to a 3-0 win over relegation rivals Norwich City in the Premier League on Saturday.

Midfielder Dan Gosling gave the hosts the lead after 10 minutes with a close-range header from Marc Pugh’s cross and Charlie Daniels doubled the advantage with a penalty nine minutes into the second half.

Afobe, signed from Wolverhampton Wanderers last week, wrapped up the points 15 minutes from time and Bournemouth moved above Norwich in the table.
