Injury News: Kelly and Zemura progressing


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Scott Parker has delivered his latest injury update ahead of the weekend’s game with Blackburn Rovers.

Tony Mowbray’s side travel to Vitality Stadium for a 3pm kick-off on Saturday 11th December looking to continue their unbeaten run.

The Cherries head coach spoke to the media in this afternoon’s press conference and gave an injury roll call, with Lloyd Kelly, Junior Stanislas and Jordan Zemura all missing Friday’s draw at Fulham with injury.  

“We are where we are,” Parker said.

“The only one at the moment is probably Adam Smith, who has had a bit of an issue after last Friday’s game. It’s a big shame for us.

“Everyone else is on track. The boys who were injured and haven’t had much game time have had more time on the training ground this week.  

“Those on the treatment table, the likes of Kelly and Zemura, are back on the grass and working with us which is pleasing.”

While Jefferson Lerma is expected to return after serving his one-game suspension at Craven Cottage, having picked up a red card in the 2-2 draw with Coventry City, Parker admitted he’s also pleased to have Robbie Brady at his disposal.

The Republic of Ireland international, who made his Cherries debut at Fulham, is back fit after a minor injury during his opening few weeks with the club.

“Robbie Brady has big experience, that’s why we brought him in. He’s got good quality as well.

“It’s been some time now that Robbie has been training with us. He picked up a little injury during that process that perhaps held him back.

“He obviously came on last Friday and hopefully now can stay fit and be in and around the squad and help us achieve what we want to this season.”
