King and Wilson to face late tests

11th January 2019, 14:17 by Aidan Perkins

Josh King needs a late fitness test for Sunday's Premier League game at Everton while Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser also face checks.

Striker King has been ill this week but will be given a late check to see if he has recovered, while fellow forward Wilson and winger Fraser have not trained fully due to minor knocks but are expected to be passed fit to face the Toffees.

Recent signing Nathaniel Clyne will keep his place in defence but £19million acquistion Dominic Solanke is not yet training fully and will have to wait at least a fortnight longer for his Cherries debut.

Simon Francis, Adam Smith and Lewis Cook (all knee) remain sidelined.

Bournemouth sit in 12th place before kick-off, level on points with Sunday's opponents who are a place above on goal difference.
