AFC Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter believes the Cherries supporters at the start of the second half was a big factor on the teams performance.
The Cherries had fallen behind to Tranmere following Jake Jervis' strike following a Miles Addison mistake with just five minutes of the first half remaining.
AFC Bournemouth had started the match brightly with good movement, good tempo and a return to the wing play familiar under Eddie Howe's previous time at the club, with both full backs getting beyond their wingers to get crosses into the box.
The first half performance didn't quite create enough chances to take a foothold in the game, but in the second half, cheered on by the North Stand, the Cherries not only created the chances to get back into the game, but took them as well, with Marc Pugh, Harry Arter and Simon Francis hitting the net to secure the three points against the League One leaders.
Arter told afcb.co.uk...
'...The reaction of the crowd at half time for me was the key. We were a goal down and it could have been easy for people to get on the lads backs and then it could have ended up in a loss. Everyone got behind us, the lads were playing for each other and we came out winning 3-1, so it was a great day.
"I was really pleased to score because that`s something I want to be doing regularly. I think I showed just how much I enjoyed it, I was buzzing!
"It was a great scalp to beat the league leaders. The manager said before we went out that it would show our intent if we could beat them. We did that and we did that by playing in the right way and man for man, we were the better team...'
