Bournemouth hope Junior Stanislas, Adam Smith and Dan Gosling could be fit following injury for Saturday’s trip to Leicester.
Stanislas has been out for the Cherries’ last six matches with a hip problem, while Gosling and Smith have had knee and thigh injuries, but all have made good progress and are in contention to face the Foxes.
Eddie Howe’s side sit 12th in the Premier League, but are only six points behind seventh-placed Wolves, and the Bournemouth boss hopes they can finish the campaign as strongly as possible. “We are still right in the phase of the season where anything is possible, there are still a lot of points to play for.
A lot can change in seven games,” Howe said. Meanwhile, the latest set of club accounts showed a deficit of £10.9million for the year ending June 30 2018, which compared to a previous profit of £14.6m, but Howe believes the future looks good on the south coast.
He added at a press conference: “The club has never been in such a strong position, in my opinion, but we still have hurdles to overcome. “The training ground is a big push of mine that we are trying to complete on and move that forward, and of course the stadium. “From a financial viewpoint, now, I don’t think this affects our vision and ability to hold on to players.
I can never sit in this seat and say 100 per cent certain what is going to happen because it is football and you never know what is going to happen. “My aim is to try to take the team forward and keep all of our players together, and try to achieve some more special things next season.”11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH.
