Bournemouth clinched promotion to the Premier League with a 1-0 home win against Nottingham Forest in the Championship on Tuesday, finishing second with one game to spare.

Bournemouth and Fulham gained automatic promotion and will return to the Premier League after two years, while Forest will compete in the playoffs for the last slot.

Kieffer Moore scored in the 83rd minute, sidefooting strongly in after Philip Billing found him with a superb free-kick after he had shaped to shoot.

“We locked eyes and just saw the space. Thankfully Phil (Billing) played me the ball and the rest is history,” Moore told reporters.

Bournemouth had a bright start, creating their first chance after a few minutes, but Forest goalkeeper Brice Samba denied midfielder Billing.

Forest striker Sam Surridge gained space following a magnificent long-range cross from defender Djed Spence in the ninth minute, but he slammed his effort against the crossbar.

Both teams produced more opportunities in the first half, which finished goalless.

Bournemouth took control of the second half after a poor start, but Forest held strong until Bournemouth defender Jordan Zemura won the vital free kick on the edge of the box.

“I’ve not really slept this week. The first half was emotional. Then we had a moment of magic from Kieffer (Moore) and we’re in the Premier League,” winger Ryan Christie told reporters.

Bournemouth will finish the season at home to eighth-placed Millwall on Saturday when Forest travel to 18th-placed Hull City.
