Pugh: Selection headache for Howe

AFC Bournemouth winger Marc Pugh believes that Cherries manager Eddie Howe will soon be having a few selection headaches.

AFC Bournemouth utility player Joe Partington, who has played as a deep holding midfielder, has been adapting his game to play at centre back and has recently returned to training following his fractured leg in April.

Northern Ireland international Josh McQuoid, who can also play in a number of positions on the wing, or up front is also edging closer to fitness following his knee operation in the summer.

Then wingers Matt Ritchie and Mohamed Coulibaly are also getting closer to a return following treatment in Italy.

With Ryan Fraser also working on his fitness following hamstring and knee complaints, Howe's options in attacking areas and on the wings are soon to be plentiful.

Pugh told afcb.co.uk...

"It`s great to have players back from injury because it means there is plenty of competition for places, I think the gaffer will have a bit of a headache choosing his team because we all want to be in the team, but that`s a positive for us.

"There have been times this season when we`ve had a few players out and it`s difficult to get partnerships going.

"But hopefully we are getting through that now and it will help the balance of the team."
