HEAD coach Scott Parker hailed the ginormous impact of Kieffer Moore and told him his goals to minutes ratio “must be right up there with the best in the world”.

A broken foot on his debut meant the striker was limited in match action for Cherries this season, after signing from Cardiff City on deadline day in January.

But having scored four goals from three substitute appearances since his return to the side – a feat which helped the Dorset outfit reach the Premier League – Parker gave huge praise to the influence of the Wales international.

Put to him that Moore was his super-sub, Parker replied: “I said that to Kieffer.

“I said ‘your goals to minute ratio must be… you must be right up there with the best in the world to be quite honest with you!’. That’s exactly what he’s been, to be fair.”

In 83 minutes of game time for Cherries, Moore has scored four times – an average of a goal just more than every 20 minutes.

He netted twice against Swansea to rescue a 3-3 draw, then the goal which confirmed promotion to the Premier League against Nottingham Forest at Vitality Stadium.

Torquay-born Moore then came off the bench to fire home the winner in a 1-0 success against Millwall on Saturday.

“We brought him in, in January. It felt like Kieffer could add to this squad and give us something a little bit different, that we have maybe needed at times during this year,” added Parker.

“When we have faced a stubborn, defensive team and we couldn’t really cut through the lines and they shut us out a little bit - to give us another option, Kieffer was brought in to do that.

“He got injured after three minutes but it was well worth him signing because he has had a massive contribution.

“Swansea, Forest, and on Saturday. I was thinking ‘if we’re going to win the game and win 1-0, it’s probably Kieffer who is going to score’. I was proven right.

“Full credit to him as well and the staff to get him to the levels he needed to get at.”
