Cherries pair out of Wolves test
Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has ruled out David Brooks and Callum Wilson for the clash with Wolves in the Premier League on Saturday.
Both first-team players have been added to the injury list, which includes long-term absentees Simon Francis and Lewis Cook.
Howe says he has no other injury updates other than a late call on Junior Stanislas, while the manager has admitted the loss of those four key individuals is hard on the squad.
"There are no dramatic changes to our team news. David Brooks and Callum Wilson are both still out - they're some way away yet. We'll also have to make a late call on Junior Stanislas," he said.
"We've also got some long-term absentees. The likes of Simon Francis and Lewis Cook are big misses for us. They've been the foundation of our side for some time now."
Speaking about Saturday's opponents at the Vitality Stadium, Howe knows his players will be in for a tough encounter against Nuno Espirito Santo's side.
He added: "Wolves have done very well this season. They're a well-balanced team with some real individual talents. They've stuck to their philosophy since their promotion.
"Continuity in team selection is important. The fact that Wolves have used so few players this season is credit to their staff and management. We know we'll be in for a tough game."
