Injury news: Lloyd Kelly set to return


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Eddie Howe has revealed that Lloyd Kelly is set to return to full training after his ankle injury sustained during pre-season training.

The defender has yet to feature for the Cherries since his move from Bristol City in the summer.

Meanwhile, boss Howe has explained how he’ll make a late decision on Lewis Cook’s involvement this weekend following his long recovery from injury.

Cook managed to play his minutes since his rehabilitation over the international break in a behind-closed-doors friendly against QPR under 21’s.

“Lloyd Kelly ‘touch wood’ will be training today, which is his first training session back,” Howe explained.

“He won’t be involved this weekend, but it’s a good step forward where he’s around the training group and we’ll look to get him a game as soon as possible.

“This weekend might come a bit too early for Lewis Cook, he’s trained now for a sustained period of time and looked really good. He’s getting closer and closer and I’ll have to make a late call on him.

“It’s a huge boost to the team when you consider players like Simon Francis and Lewis Cook all beginning to be back involved around the training group.

“They’re big players for us and we’re really looking forward to getting a healthy squad back together.

“Arnaut Danjuma is still building his robustness to get back to full training, he’s not been with the full group yet but he’s back on grass.”
