Cherries injury update ahead of Forest

Cherries injury update ahead of Forest

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has been pleased with the work he has done with the players during the international break.

South African international Tokelo Rantie was the only member of the Cherries squad to go away during the break, with on loan West Ham midfielder Jack Collison and Cherries midfielder Shaun MacDonald withdrawing from the Wales squad and Scotland Under 21's international Ryan Fraser also pulling out of the Scotland squad.

Whilst Ryan Fraser's hamstring leaves him as a doubt ahead of the back to back away weekends against Nottingham Forest and Leicester City, both Collison and MacDonald could be in line for a return.

The break also gave AFC Bournemouth top goalscorer Lewis Grabban the chance to attend the FIFA-registered clinic in Rome which has recently treated both winger Matt Ritchie and left back Charlie Daniels.

Grabban has been suffering from an ongoing problem with his heel which he will continue to play through.

Josh McQuoid and Mohamed Coulibaly look set to be the next players to travel to Italy to try and deal with their respective knee and achilles problems.

Meanwhile, 'keeper Darryl Flahavan is expected to remain sidelined for a month with a thigh strain and a dead leg suffered against Leeds United, while Joe Partington and Wes Fogden are close to a return to training after they have undergone operations.

Fogden had surgery on his hernia, whilst Partington underwent a second operation after he suffered an infection following his first operation on his leg.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

"...Ryan Fraser`s hamstring problem is being assessed by our physio's and, again, we are going to have to monitor him closely to see whether he will be fit and available for Forest.

"The break has given us a chance to get some good work into the players. Harry Arter hadn`t done a lot of training before he came back against Millwall so he has had a good two weeks under his belt.

"We have reintroduced Shaun MacDonald this week and Jack Collison has returned to training after his knee problem."
