Eddie Howe gives Bournemouth injury update before Huddersfield

Huddersfield vs Bournemouth

Bournemouth will travel to Huddersfield on Saturday as they look to end their poor run of form.

The Cherries are now 12th in the Premier League and without a win in their last five outings, losing four and drawing one.

Bournemouth are now also 10 points off 7th place Wolves.

As for Huddersfield, they are almost certainly going to be relegated come the end of the campaign.

The Terriers sit dead bottom of the table with a dismal 14 points from 29 games.

They did recently pick up their first win under their new boss vs Wolves.

However, they are 13 points from safety and will presumably be plying their trade in the Championship next season.

Bournemouth injury update

Heading into the must-win tie for Bournemouth, Eddie Howe has given an update on his squad.

Callum Wilson has been out of action for Bournemouth’s last six league games with a knee injury.

But Howe seems confident that their star forward is edging closer to a return:

“Callum [Wilson] has done some light training back on the grass and has looked pretty good.

“We’re in a similar position to what we were last week. We’ll consult with the physios and see where he is come Saturday.”

While Wilson is edging closer to a return, Steve Cook is expected to be out for around five or six weeks.

“Unfortunately, Steve Cook will be out. He had a long-standing groin problem and had an injection that has become infected. He’ll be out for between five and six weeks.”
