Bournemouth secured all three points after Brett Pitman scored his side’s second penalty of the afternoon during their Championship game against Middlesbrough, but there was more than a hint of controversy about the incident leading to the decision, as Harry Arter appeared to not receive any contact before tumbling to the ground.

Arter – the scorer of the second goal at the Goldsands – went down in between both Grant Leadbitter, and Albert Adomah, but replays suggested that neither player touched the 25-year-old. That didn’t stop Anthony Taylor pointing to the spot for the second time in the game.

Substitute Brett Pitman stepped up to coolly seal the points for Eddie Howe’s men.
