A wonder strike from Liam Feeney maintained Bournemouth's flying start to the season with a fully-deserved 1-0 win over fellow early pacesetters Crewe.
Feeney struck five minutes into the second half when he picked up the ball 15 yards inside the opposition half and went past Crewe captain Billy Jones before rifling a powerful shot across keeper Adam Legzdins.
The 22 year-old Feeney could have had a hat-trick, stabbing wide after another electrifying run and then fired over the top as Bournemouth caught Crewe undermanned as the Alex pushed for a late equaliser.
Crewe offered little in attack although their late rally saw Calvin Zola head just wide from a corner and Bournemouth keeper Shwan Jalal was called into action in the five minutes of injury time added to beat away a shot from Crewe substitute Byron Moore.
