AFC Bournemouth ended a run of four away defeats in a row to beat Stoke City 2-1 thanks to a quickfire first-half double.
Andrew Surman opened the scoring in the 16th minute with a low finish.
Two minutes later Junior Stanislas doubled the lead with a penalty after Ryan Shawcross, in his first match since August, fouled Benik Afobe.
Stoke rallied, with Glen Johnson and Mame Biram Diouf being denied and Shawcross prodding just wide.
Diouf's close-range finish just after the hour halved the deficit for Stoke, who pushed hard for a leveller, but AFC Bournemouth held on.
Despite the win AFC Bournemouth remain 19th, while Stoke dropped into the relegation zone, one point above them.
