Brighton beat Bournemouth to return to winning ways

first_imgAlireza Jahanbakhsh and Aaron Mooy both broke their goalscoring ducks for Brighton & Hove Albion who returned to winning ways with a 2-0 home win over Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday.Jahanbakhsh, who was given his first start of the season, repaid Graham Potter’s faith in the midfielder by scoring as early as the third minute with a fierce, low strike into the far corner.Bournemouth had a couple of chances to equalise in the first half but Brighton defenders Dan Burn and Lewis Dunk were on hand to make last-ditch blocks as the home side went into the break 1-0 up.Brighton right-back Dan Burn then thought he had scored his first goal for his club, too, when he put the ball in the back of the net during a scramble in the box. However, VAR disallowed it for a marginal offside call when the set piece was taken.Mooy capped a man-of-the-match performance by doubling Brighton’s lead in the 79th minute when he latched on to Leandro Trossard’s pass and took two sublime touches to set himself up for a curling shot that beat goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.The win, Brighton’s first at home in four games, lifted them up to 13th in the standings while Bournemouth remained in 16th – two points above the relegation zone – after their seventh loss in nine games.last_img read more

Of women delivering at a regional hospital, 35.5% were by caesarean section and 8% were stillborn. These metrics indicate severe underutilisation of timely, supervised, institutional birthing services among women in north-central Liberia. Participants reported financial and transportation barriers to seeking care, as well as cultural traditions including the practice of delivery under the care of a TM. (Traditional midwife is the term used in Liberia, analogous to the traditional birth attendant in other nations.) Further, more than half of women who delivered their last child in a hospital did do so only after experiencing complications in labour at home.Read the full article here.
