Eddie Howe expects Jermain Defoe to be "fine" for the trip to West Brom this weekend.
The England international, who joined the south coast club in June, was rested as a precaution on Sunday after complaining of muscular discomfort following the 1-0 defeat to Valencia: "Jermain just felt some tightness in his groin. He hasn’t trained since but we are confident he will be fit for West Brom." Howe went onto to add that Nathan Ake was okay despite missing the 2-2 with Napoli although Steve Cook needs to be assessed after he was forced off in the opening exchanges of the second half on Sunday. Adam Smith and Brad Smith have recovered from respective thigh and hamstring problems but Callum Wilson [knee] and Emerson Hyndman [foot] remain long-term absentees. Junior Stanislas has been referred to see another specialist after surgery to remedy a niggling groin injury failed to address the issue. Aug 8 - 5:12 AM
