Bournemouth Makes EPL Return After Nottingham Win

Championship side Bournemouth has been promoted to the English Premier League after Kieffer Moore scored their only goal against the following competitor Nottingham Forest automatic promotion.

Bournemouth beat Nottingham Forest to Return to EPL

The late goal sealed their return to English Premier League, now they and Fulham who are the champions are back to the English Premier League while Nottinghamshire Forest will have to play a play-off to see if they will join the two sites that have returned to the top league in their country.

Substitute Moore’s cool finish, after a low free-kick found him unmarked in the box, leaves third-placed Forest needing to go through the play-offs if they are to join Bournemouth in the top flight next season.

Moore, a January arrival from Cardiff who has managed to make just three substitute appearances for the club because of injury, was smothered by jubilant team-mates as they knew a win against their closest challengers Nottingham Forest would end a two-year top-flight absence.

They return to the English Premier League under manager Scott Parker, who celebrates his second promotion in three seasons, having taken Fulham up in 2019-20 before leaving the west London club for Bournemouth following relegation last season.
