Bournemouth

Howe likely to be without Gosling for Terriers visit

4th December 2018, 11:01 by Neil Foster

Manager Eddie Howe is unlikely to have midfielder Dan Gosling available as Bournemouth face Huddersfield Town at the Vitality Stadium.

Gosling missed Saturday's 3-1 loss to table-topping Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium and has undergone tests on his troublesome knee.

While not ruling out the 28-year-old schemer, Howe admits he "is a concern for us", suggesting the former Everton man will play no part against the Terriers.

The Cherries will also be without defender Adam Smith, who had surgery on a knee injury suffered in the loss to Newcastle United two weeks ago.

Howe also revealed that he has "a couple of niggles" in the ranks but expects his men to play through anything minor at a tough time of the year.

One positive for the south coast outfit is the return of Jefferson Lerma as the Colombian completed his one-match suspension during the defeat to City.

Tyrone Mings made his first league appearance of the season last time out and may well come into contention against Davis Wagner's side as Bournemouth look to arrest a sequence of four straight defeats.
