It was a touch of class from £14 million Netherlands international Arnaud Danjuma that sealed three valuable points for Bournemouth against Bristol City on Wednesday night.

But even a beautifully taken goal, clipped home in style after a perfect first touch, wasn’t enough to earn the former Club Brugge winger the man of the match award.

Instead, that honour went to a man who stood strong at the other end of the pitch as Bournemouth kept a clean sheet against Dean Holden’s free-scoring Robins.

Steve Cook, of course, has been there and done it before.

Bournemouth were a League One club when he arrived on the South Coast in 2011 with this old-school, battle-scarred centre-back one of the few players remaining from the Cherries team that stormed to the Championship title five years ago.

And, if West Ham had pressed ahead with their interest in the £8 million-rated stopper rather than turning to Craig Dawson, Cook would still be a Premier League player (Daily Star).

But after producing the sort of commanding defensive performance he has made his trademark in almost a decade in black and red, Bournemouth fans certainly weren’t taking their long-serving stopper for granted.
