AFC Bournemouth midfielder Wes Fogden will play through the pain barrier after suffering a dislocated thumb against Scunthorpe.

The attacker suffered the injury during the first half at Glanford Park, but played on through the pain and was fitted with a brace at half time.

Ironically after two controversial penalties were awarded against the Cherries for handball, Fogden suffered the injury when the ball hit him on the hand, but no decision was awarded and Fogden kept possession of the ball.

Fogden told the Daily Echo

“The ball was smacked quite hard at me and I could feel it straight away.

“But as I had the ball at the time, I couldn`t go down for treatment so continued playing. Once the ball had gone out of play, I could feel the pain getting worse and worse and my thumb started swelling up.

“Fortunately, it wasn`t fully dislocated but it is quite badly swollen. Nothing was going to make me come off. I just love playing and want to stay out there for as long as I can.”
