Bryan Mbuemo's stoppage time equaliser secured a dramatic point for unbeaten Brentford as Bournemouth failed to secure their first Premier League win under Andoni Iraola.

Brentford took an early lead when Mathias Jensen's clever free kick caught out Bournemouth goalkeeper Neto at the near post, but Dominic Solanke levelled before the break when he shot through Ben Mee's legs.

Substitute David Brooks' first top flight goal since recovering from Hodgkin's lymphoma then gave the Cherries the lead deep into the second half, the Wales midfielder tapping home from close range after a mistake by Rico Henry.

Mbuemo had missed a great chance just after the break with the score level, but he made amends three minutes into injury time with a smart turn and shot as he closed in on goal to grab his fourth of the season and earn the home side a point.

Kevin Schade, Yoane Wissa and Keane Lewis-Potter all hit the woodwork for the home side, and the latter's miss looked to be the costliest as the visitors went ahead through Brooks just seconds later.

Bournemouth were just a few minutes from what would have been their first Premier League win in eight outings, since they beat Leeds 4-1 under previous manager Gary O'Neil on 30 April, but instead they buckled in the final moments and have taken just two points from a possible 12 so far under Iraola.
