The Cherries treatment room became a whole lot busier this weekend following the come-from-behind win over bottom side West Bromwich Albion.
The 2-1 victory all but guarantees Eddie Howe’s men will be plying their trade in the Premier League next season, but the three-points came at a cost. Club-captain Simon Francis was replaced due to a hamstring related problem with less than 20 minutes on the clock while Adam Smith, himself just back after a thigh injury, pulled up on the hour mark due to a muscular issue. Both players will be assessed to determine the extent of their injuries, although with a fortnight break due to the upcoming internationals, Howe will be hoping to have the pair at his disposal for the trip to Watford on March 31. Forgotten man Harry Arter is also back on the sidelines after aggravating a calf complaint which rules him out of next Friday's Republic of Ireland friendly in Turkey. Mar 18 - 6:10 PM
