Bournemouth winger Fraser hungry for more goals

Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser is hopeful he can continue scoring goals with his non-preferred foot.

The Scotland International scored a cracking goal with his left boot in the Cherries' 1-1 draw with West Ham United on the weekend.

Fraser told the Daily Echo: "It's my first left-foot finish of the season so it was a nice one for me.

"The gaffer had a word with me in midweek and said I shoot too much with my left foot.

"He was just having a joke with me, saying it always seems to fall to me outside the box and, instead of shifting it on to my right foot, I shift it on to my left.

"He won't say anything after Saturday, will he!

"I back myself with my left-foot strikes. I practise them every week so, if I can do them in games then it's even better.

"I feel I'm two-footed and that's what I do. I go with the one I feel might give me an extra yard.

"A lot of players try to get it on to their favourite foot and they lose the space. It's whatever I feel comfortable with.

"I struck it well and it was nice to be on the scoresheet."
