Bournemouth injury blow: Adam Smith suffers freak injury vs Newcastle

Newcastle vs Bournemouth

After 10 games in a row without a win, Newcastle finally won a league game vs Watford last weekend.

As a result, Newcastle moved out of the relegation zone and will have no doubt gained some confidence heading into Saturday’s game with Bournemouth.

However, Bournemouth came into the game 6th in the table having enjoyed a superb start to the season.

The Cherries had lost just once in their last five and have an inform Callum Wilson at their disposal.

However, despite Bournemouth’s great start, Newcastle were the first to strike in Saturday’s clash.

Salomon Rondon would put the Magpies ahead just seven minutes into the game.

The Venezuelan would then grab his second goal of the game in the 40th minute.

Jefferson Lerma would pull one back for Bournemouth in first-half injury time.

Adam Smith’s freak injury

As well as being 2-1 down vs Newcastle, Bournemouth have also suffered a rather bizarre injury blow.

Bournemouth’s Adam Smith would be in possession of the ball and attempting to take a quick freekick.

Smith would pretend to kick the ball away and as he pulled his leg back he would pull up.

Smith would then go down in serious pain and was subbed straight off.

It has since been speculated that Smith has suffered ligament damage.
