Eddie Howe provides injury update on Bournemouth trio before Wolves

Bournemouth vs Wolves

Bournemouth are set to go head-to-head with Wolves on Saturday.

The Cherries head into the weekend’s action 9th in the Premier League, but their form of late hasn’t been too spectacular.

Bournemouth have won just one of their last five PL outings, drawing two and losing two.

As for their opponents Wolves, they look to be finding their form after a rocky start to the campaign.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are undefeated in their last five league ties and, as a result, they are up to 8th in the English top-flight.

Bournemouth injury update

Prior to facing off with Wolves, Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe held his pre-match press conference on Friday.

During the presser, Howe gave updates on several of his players.

The Bournemouth boss confirmed that Joshua King will miss the game with a hamstring problem he picked up on international duty:

“Joshua King will miss this game unfortunately.

“He picked up a hamstring strain very late in Norway’s second game. It’s a big blow to lose Joshua. It’s a very minor hamstring strain, so it’s difficult to judge how long he’ll be out, but it may keep him out for a couple of weeks.”

Howe then confirmed that David Brooks won’t be involved, while Bournemouth will make a late call on Ryan Fraser:

“David Brooks still isn’t training with us out on the grass. Until we see that he won’t be involved with the matchday squad.”

“We’ll make a late call on Ryan Fraser, looking at his injury and see how he is ahead of the game.” As quoted by Bournemouth’s official website.
