AFC Bournemouth stand in captain Tommy Elphick is set for a scan to discover the extent of the injury he sustained following a nasty challenge by Franchise player Ryan Lowe.
Elphick was forced off in the first half of the Cherries 3-0 victory at stadium:MK after being on the receiving end of a crude challenge, the tackle which was two footed and off the floor sparked a tussle between both sides and Lowe was sent off and forced away from the players in angry scenes during the closing stages of the first half.
Elphick was left in no doubts that if he hasn't seen the challenge and moved slightly he would have been left with a broken leg, whilst Lowe will face a three match ban.
Elphick told the Daily Echo...
"I have never experienced anything like it. I don`t know what it was with the guy but he acted like an absolute animal from the first whistle. I never wind up an opponent because I don`t think there is any need for it. He was doing things I don`t agree with.
"There was an incident before the sending off and he sparked that as well. The pair of us went in for a challenge and we ended up in a bundle on the floor before he tried to stamp on me. He was saying things which were inhumane and was like a man possessed.
"I saw the tackle coming and he had tried to do me two or three times before. I saw him out of the corner of my eye and he jumped off the floor with two feet. If my leg had been planted, there is no doubt in my mind that he would have snapped it in half...'
