Injury news: Gradel hopefully back in March, Stanislas will have late test for Arsenal

Posted: Fri 05 Feb 2016

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe hopes to see Callum Wilson and Max Gradel back playing in Cherries shirts before the end of the season.

Howe revealed both players are in line with their scheduled returns and also confirmed that it’s not 100% certain that Junior Stanislas will make a return against Arsenal. 

"Joshua King did well against Palace and he looks to be getting back to his former fitness," Howe explained.

"We’ll make a late call on Junior for Sunday’s game. "Callum Wilson and Max Gradel are pretty much in line with their scheduled returns. I wouldn't expect Max back any time soon, not within the next couple of weeks anyway, maybe in March. 

"I think both be back before the end of the season. From our perspective, they are like new signings if we can get them back to fitness and good form. I’m excited by the possibilities should they return this season."
