That second-half strike, his 13th in 94 appearances for the Cherries, saw the midfielder pass last season's tally and he has set his sights on more.

He told the Bournemouth Daily Echo: "Everybody wants to score more goals and I think my record could be better."I look at other midfielders in the division and they are getting 10 or more, although a lot of them are on penalties. I am sure I would have reached double figures by now if I was taking penalties.

"When I get forward and find myself in a position to score, I feel I have an eye for goal. I have passed last season's tally and now I want to get to double figures. That is what I set out to do at the start of every season and, although there are only six games left, I have still got a chance."

Only goal difference keeps Eddie Howe's men outside of the npower League One play-off places ahead of the trip to Colchester.
