AFC Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter has dedicated the Cherries win at stadium:MK and his own spectacular 30 yard goal to stand in captain Tommy Elphick.

Arter dedicated the three points to Elphick following he game.
Arter told the Daily Echo...
"On behalf of the team, I would like to dedicate that win to Tommy because he is on crutches. He has been a great captain for us and my goal was for Tommy."
On his goal he added...
"If I had missed, the gaffer probably would have had the hump with me! Luckily for me, I caught it right, it went in and it was one of the more pleasing goals I have scored."
