It is still unknown whether Bournemouth right-back Adam Smith will play again in 2017/18.
The versatile player, who can also play on the right side of midfield, missed Bournemouth's dramatic 2-2 draw with Watford on Saturday after sustaining medial ligament damage to his knee. Smith suffered the injury in Gameweek 31 against West Brom in a clash with Jake Livermore. After initially trying to play on, Smith eventually had to limp from the field of play. Ahead of the Watford game, manager Eddie Howe described Smith as a "big miss". Howe was reluctant to put a definite time frame of the player's return, but he did say that he hoped that Smith's season isn't over. Apr 3 - 7:19 AM

Adam Smith looks set for yet more time on the sidelines after damaging knee ligaments during the win over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

The attacking full-back was replaced on the hour mark after he "took a nasty whack in a tackle" which he failed to recover from. "It looks like a medial ligament problem," confirmed Eddie Howe after the win. The 26-year-old will undergo further tests, and if they reveal significant damage, then he is likely to miss the season run-in. Fortunately, teammate Simon Francis looks to have fared a little better, after he was withdrawn due to a hamstring injury: "A slight strain, hopefully it’s nothing too serious," said the Cherries boss. If either player fails to recover in time for the trip to Watford in GW32, then Charlie Daniels is expected to return to the side. However, if both miss out, Eddie Howe may switch to three at the back with Ryan Fraser or Jermain Defoe favourites to line-up at Vicarage Road.

Adam Smith will miss next weekends’ game at Crystal Palace after he was controversially booked for diving.

The Cherries defender went down under a challenge from Southampton forward Sofiane Boufal on the half hour mark, but instead of being awarded a spot kick, referee Jon Moss cautioned Smith meaning he is now suspended for game week 16 after collecting his fifth caution of the campaign. "We should have had a penalty," he said. "I got to the ball just before him, jumped to go over it and he took me down. I spoke to him after and he apologised and said it was a penalty. I don't mind him admitting it but the fact that he booked me and can't' get it rescinded." His absence is likely to earn Steve Cook a recall at Selhurst Park - the Bournemouth captain was one of five changes to the side which drew 0-0 with Swansea.

Bournemouth right-back Adam Smith has signed a new contract with the club which will keep him at Dean Court until the end of the 2020/21 season.

Smith has been at the club on a permanent basis since 2014 when he was signed from Spurs. During his time at Spurs, one of the seven clubs he represented while on loan was the Cherries back in 2010/11. The full-back has blossomed into a first XI Premier League footballer under the tutelage of Eddie Howe at Bournemouth. The 26 year old has played 113 times already for the club and Eddie Howe is delighted that Smith will increase that figure: "When we first brought Adam to the club we believed he had huge potential. Adam has taken his opportunity." Likewise, Smith is happy with the deal. He told the Cherries' website that "there is nowhere else [he wants] to be at the moment."

The AFC Bournemouth defense made a mistake that gave Manchester United the opening goal and would eventually concede twice more, but Adam Smith salvaged a goal in a 1-3 loss to the Red Devils.

Eddie Howe chose to begin the match with Max Gradel and Benick Afobe on the bench, and it may have cost them as the Cherries failed to take advantage of a United side that did not start the match with a very fluid attack. Then, in the 40th minute, Simon Francis made a meal of a back pass that allowed the Red Devils to punish them with the opening goal. Artur Boruc managed to make a couple of decent saves, including a cannon free kick by Zlatan Ibrahimovic but Bournemouth were 0-3 down before Smith answered back, firing into the top corner after sprinting into the area and latching onto a pass from Lewis Grabban. The Cherries defense conceded more than two goals a game on average last season and have once again started poorly in that area. Now they must travel to battle a pretty strong West Ham attack in Week 2.

While teammate Junior Stanislas looks to be out for some time following hernia surgery, Adam Smith, who himself suffered a hernia in the latter stages of last season, is on the road to fitness after a 45-minute appearance in AFC Bournemouth's friendly on Saturday.

The Cherries played a preseason match against Cardiff City and the defender was able to play the entire first half without aggravating his injury. Smith is definitely a part of Eddie Howe's plans after signing a 4-year contract extension at the end of last season. Whether he will be fit enough to be considered for selection against Manchester United in Week 1 is still a doubt at this time.

Bournemouth has locked down defender Adam Smith to a long-term contract after surviving its first season in the Premier League.

The club announced on Friday that versatile defender Adam Smith has signed a new contract to keep him at the Vitality Stadium through the summer of 2020 after playing a critical role in the team following a long-term injury to Tommy Elphick. The 25-year-old only made brief appearances off the bench in the first 14 games of the season before starting every game at right-back through Week 32, when he succumbed to a hernia that ruled him out for the rest of the season. The defender made 35 appearances in all competitions as well as scoring two goals for the Cherries.

Adam Smith, Harry After and Benik Afobe will not be available for AFC Bournemouth's trip to Anfield this weekend as the trio continue to recover from their respective injuries.

Smith is dealing with a hernia, an injury that can be difficult to manage and therefore difficult to speculate when the defender will return. His loss gave Tommy Elphick a chance to re-insert himself into Howe's XI after waiting for his chance the last several games. Arter is seeing a specialist for his Achilles injury and Howe is not sure if the midfielder will return before the end of the season. Afobe's original timetable was for a month on the sidelines so, barring any setbacks, we should see him in a couple more weeks.

Eddie Howe announced that Adam Smith was substituted in AFC Bournemouth's loss to Manchester City because of an ongoing groin issue.

Howe revealed that Smith had been playing through the injury for the past six weeks but the issue got to be too much for the defender during the loss to City. Club captain Tommy Elphick replaced Smith in the game and would be the one to step in should Smith be ruled out this weekend against Aston Villa. Considering the Cherries have shipped seven goals in their past two games and Elphick's status with the club, the switch to Elphick may come off regardless of Smith's status heading into Week 33.

Bournemouth held Crystal Palace to without a shot on target in a 0-0 draw that ensured the Cherries would avoid dropping back into the bottom three for at least the weekend.

Adam Smith continued to show his worth as a mid-season bloomer, drawing a match-high three fouls during the course of the afternoon. Matt Ritchie and Glenn Murray came closest to scoring in each half but the club looked far from their goalscoring form of last month. The point puts Bournemouth three points clear of Norwich City in the relegation zone with fixtures against the league's top two sides, Arsenal and Leicester City, upcoming in the next seven days.

Adam Smith and Charlie Daniels scored at the Hawthorns and Bournemouth made it three wins in a row.

It won't go down in club history like the win at Chelsea and the win over Manchester United but it could be part of history if Bournemouth stay up. The Cherries got goals from unlikely sources and survived one Baggies fight back to put themselves we clear of the relegation zone.
