Semenyo scores to help Bournemouth beat Wolverhampton 1-0

WOLVERHAMPTON, England (AP) — Antoine Semenyo scored to help 10-man Bournemouth beat Wolverhampton 1-0 on Wednesday in a Premier League match involving another contentious refereeing decision.

Wolves had a would-be equalizer by Hwang Hee-chan disallowed in the second half after referee Stuart Attwell adjudged Matheus Cunha to have fouled Justin Kluivert in an off-the-ball incident in the build-up.

Attwell was the Video Assistant Referee in the spotlight after denying Nottingham Forest three penalties in their 2-0 loss at Everton on Sunday. Nottingham questioned his integrity because the club said Attwell is a fan of Luton, which is battling with Forest to avoid relegation.

Cunha's foul was not spotted in real time but Attwell opted to give the foul following advice from VAR Darren England to watch it again on the pitchside monitor at Molineux.

Semenyo scored from close range in the 37th minute after Wolves failed to clear.

Attwell showed a straight red card to Bournemouth defender Milos Kerkez for a foul on Matt Doherty in the 79th minute.

Former Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant, who is a longtime Wolves fan, was in attendance.
