Bournemouth will have to do without Simon Francis for their Gameweek 13 clash with Swansea after the defender was sent off for two bookable offences on Saturday.
The 32 year old has been Eddie Howe's first choice right-back so far this season but is now likely to be replaced by Adam Smith in the starting line-up for the trip to Wales. Francis was sent for an early shower just before the interval in the Cherries' 4-0 win over Huddersfield after two fouls in quick succession on the elusive winger Rajiv van La Parra. Bookings were the only blot on a good performance with three other Bournemouth players also receiving yellows. Cook, Arter and Adam Smith are now all just one caution from picking up a one game ban for accumulating 5 cards already in 2017/18. Eddie Howe commented one those "few lads looking over their shoulders" post-match as well as voicing his agreement with the referees decision to send off his player. Tue, Nov 21, 2017 06:55:00 AM
