Howe: Daniels loss is a big blow

Howe: Daniels loss is a big blow

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has admitted that he may use the loan market to replace the injured Charlie Daniels.

The Cherries left back suffered an injured foot in the FA Cup draw at the DW Stadium against Premier League side Wigan Athletic last month.

He initially played through the pain barrier, making appearances in the next four fixtures, but was eventually forced to sit out the home game against Crewe, with Dan Seaborne slotting into the left back role.

Daniels sat out the next three games, with Seaborne filling the role for the first half at stadium:mk, but following the injury to stand-in captain Tommy Elphick, Seaborne was moved into the centre of defence and right winger Matt Ritchie was drafted in to cover left back.

Ritchie has made a further two appearances in the position and Howe is now weighing up his options.

A recent visit to a specialist for a second opinion has ruled Daniels out for a minimum of two weeks, but if the injury fails to heal, then Daniels will have to have an operation to fix the problem which would rule him out for the remainder of the season.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

"Charlie has been a key player for us down our left-hand side. Him and Marc Pugh have formed a really good partnership. To lose that at such a crucial stage of the season has been a blow for us but Matt Ritchie and Dan Seaborne have come in, both played the position and have both done well. More importantly, the team has kept winning.

"I have said that we may look to the loan market to see what potential options are available to us there, but to lose Charlie at this stage is a big blow to the team."
