BOURNEMOUTH, England (AP) — Enes Unal came off the bench to score in stoppage time for his first Premier League goal as Bournemouth fought back from 2-0 down to salvage a 2-2 draw at home to relegation-threatened Sheffield United on Saturday.

Strikes from Gustavo Hamer and captain Jack Robinson looked to have earned the struggling Blades their second away win of the season.

However, Dango Ouattara scored in the 74th and Unal equalized in the first minute of stoppage time to earn the hosts a point from a pulsating game.

The Cherries were awarded a spot kick with just 14 minutes played after Tom Davies clumsily swept Dominic Solanke off his feet. Solanke stepped up in search of his 15th Premier League goal of the season but lost his footing just as he was about to address the ball and ballooned it over the crossbar off his standing left foot.

Next-to-last Sheffield United salvaged some pride after a 6-0 drubbing at the hands of Arsenal on Monday but is still in a tough position, 10 points adrift of safety.

United States midfielder Tyler Adams was selected on the bench for Bournemouth but didn't come on. Adams has appeared in just one match since March 11, 2023, due to a hamstring injury that required surgery.
