​Bournemouth boss delighted for goalscorer Pugh

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has praise for much-travelled Marc Pugh, who scored the only goal in last night's win over misfiring Premier League champions Leicester.

"I thought Marc was absolutely magnificent and he's one of the shining examples of what I look for in a Bournemouth player," said Howe.

"He's been out of the squad, he's had to wait, bide his time, be patient. He's been the model professional, trained well, played development games and travelled all the way across the country to play in development games, which is unlike the modern Premier League player."
