Harry Arter celebrated his first Ireland call-up with a stunning goal last night

Meanwhile, Wes Hoolahan came off the bench to score for Norwich.

HARRY ARTER, WHO has received his first Ireland call-up ahead of the side’s Euro 2016 qualifier with Poland at the end of the month, scored a stunning goal during Bournemouth’s clash with Cardiff last night.

Arter has been in fine form for the Championship club and now has seven goals in 38 appearances this season.

Bournemouth, however, could ultimately only manage a 1-1 draw with Cardiff, and saw rivals Watford and Middlesbrough move ahead of them in the race for the Championship promotion places.

Former Ireland underage international (and current England U21 player) Patrick Bamford scored the only goal of the game, as Boro beat Derby 1-0, with Richard Keogh playing 90 minutes for the latter and teammate Jeff Hendrick coming on for the final 20.

Another Irish international, Wes Hoolahan, came off the bench to score in Norwich’s 2-2 draw with Huddersfield, while Kevin Doyle was an unused sub in Wolves’ 3-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday, though Matt Doherty played the full 90 minutes for Kenny Jackett’s side and Keiren Westwood featured in goals for the Owls.

Former Ireland U21 player Jay Tabb scored the crucial goal, as Mick McCarthy’s Ipswich beat Neil Lennon’s Bolton 1-0, with in-form Daryl Murphy providing the assist.

Meanwhile, Stephen Henderson and David Forde both earned clean sheets, as Charlton beat Blackpool 3-0 and Millwall drew 0-0 with Brighton, with Leon Best completing 75 minutes for the latter.
