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. Aug 14 - 10:37 AM

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.
