After Aitor Karanka’s side went into half-time a goal down, thanks to a Yann Kermorgant penalty, he would have been keen to see a positive reaction at the start of the second period, but Arter’s strike doubled the Cherries lead within three minutes of the restart, and left Boro needing a miracle to salvage anything from the game.
