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Fraser was withdrawn after just 27 minutes after taking a heavy knock to the knee against the Southern Premier League side.

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.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

"It is a concern because we think it is his medial ligament. He took two whacks to the same area. We are hopeful it will be nothing more than a week to 10 days but will have to wait and see. With knee injuries, you always have to be protective.
