Goalkeeper Shwan Jalal believes he can be the hero against Huddersfield if the play-off second leg goes to penalties.

Jalal pulled off several good saves to ensure Bournemouth head to the Galpharm Stadium on level terms at 1-1 and if the return game is decided on spot-kicks, he is confident he can be the hero.

Jalal told the Huddersfield Daily Examiner: "I am due a couple of penalty saves. I think I have faced eight this season and have saved only one. It is one of those lucky things and some people have got a knack for it and some people haven't.

"If it were to go to that, hopefully my luck would change and I would be quietly confident I could do something."
