Northampton Town recorded their first League One victory in eight attempts with a 4-1 thrashing of Bournemouth.
The triumph sees Stuart Gray's Northampton climb to 15th in the table, while The Cherries remain second from bottom.
Dean Bodwitch (4) handed The Cobblers an early lead when his effort caught a deflection to loop over Gareth Stewart.
Bournemouth hit back almost instantly though, with Sam Vokes assisting Brett Pitman (5) - who coolly slotted home.
Northampton regained their lead just before half-time when Jason Crowe (43) headed home from close range.
The home side kept up the pressure in the second half, and a rasping strike from Daniel Jones (50) and Bradley Johnson's (67) excellent effort secured a 4-1 success.
