AFC Bournemouth midfielder Dan Gosling is in contention for the Premier League’s April Goal of the month award.

As reported on the club’s official website, Gosling’s strike in the 3-3 draw with Southampton is the one to have been recognised by competition sponsors Carling.

The goal pulled the Cherries level after Shane Long had opened the scoring for the Saints, in what turned out to be an eventful fixture at St Mary’s Stadium.

The midfielder rounded off a fantastic team move that saw Eddie Howe’s men travel the length of the pitch with the ball on the counter-attack.

The strike is one of the 29-year-old’s two Premier League goals this season, having made 25 appearances and also providing an assist.

The ex-Newcastle United man faces stiff competition for the prize with seven other players being named on the shortlist, and the winner is set to be announced next Tuesday, May 7th.
