BOURNEMOUTH, England (AP) - Stoke missed out on a first away win since January when an own goal allowed Bournemouth to draw 2-2 in their English Premier League match on Saturday.

Defender Ryan Shawcross accidentally deflected Josh King’s strike into his own net. Stoke protested, believing King was offside, but the goal stood.

Both mid-table teams secured positions in the league for next season.

Stoke benefited from opening with an own goal, thanks to a back-header by Bournemouth’s Lys Mousset. That was Stoke’s first away goal in 629 minutes.

Bournemouth came back through Junior Stanislas, Stoke went back in front thanks to Mame Biram Diouf, then Shawcross helped the home side level again.
