Howe: Loan players gaining experience
AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has been pleased with how the players out on loan have been performing.
Up until Miles Addison returned to Dean Court with a knee injury following a spell in League One with Scunthorpe United, the Cherries had six players out on loan.
AFC Bournemouth striker Matt Tubbs is on a season long loan deal with AFC Wimbledon in League Two, so far he has scored 5 goals in 7 appearances.
Cherries development striker Jayden Stockley is also on loan in League Two with Cambridge United, he made his league debut as a 75th minute substitute, scoring 2 goals in five minutes against Carlisle United.
AFC Bournemouth trio Josh McQuoid, Ryan Allsop and Mohamed Coulibaly all joined League One side Coventry City following the deal which brought Callum Wilson from Coventry to Dean Court.
McQuoid has scored 3 goals in 7 appearances, whilst Allsop has kept 2 clean sheets in 5 appearances.
Coulibaly initially struggled with injury but made his debut on Tuesday, playing 80 minutes during the 1-0 win away to Wycombe.
This (Friday) evening will see Coventry return to the Ricoh Arena for the first time in over a year, with all three Cherries players in contention to start.
The game is live on Sky Sports and a crowd in the region of 19,000 is expected to welcome Coventry back to the City.
Howe told the Daily Echo...
"...Josh is scoring goals for Coventry so that will hopefully do him the world of good, while Matt Tubbs is doing what he has done for most of his career and that is good to see as well. Jayden made a really good start on his debut so we were pleased for him.
"It is great to see Ryan Allsop playing because I think it is the best thing for him and his development to be playing games regularly.
"It will be great for the three lads at Coventry to see them return to the Ricoh. They will get the experience of playing in front of big crowds and in big games for them so I am really pleased to see them hopefully getting as much football as they can...'
