Howe: Concern over Fraser's medial ligament

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is concerned over the extent of Ryan Fraser's knee injury which he sustained in the 11-0 win over Dorchester Town on Saturday.

Fraser was seen leaving the Avenue Stadium with his knee in a brace and the winger is expected to be assessed by the Dean Court medical staff early this week.
