Team news: Danjuma 'ready', waiting on Lerma news


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Ahead of the trip to Derby County on Tuesday Jason Tindall says Arnaut Danjuma is ready to make his injury return, while the Cherries will also now have Jefferson Lerma available for selection.

Dutchman Danjuma hasn't played since the November match with Nottingham Forest, but is ever closer to his Championship return after a series of good training sessions with the rest of the squad.

Lerma is also in contention to face the Rams after his red card in Saturday's match against Luton Town was rescinded.

Manager Tindall spoke about the fitness in his squad as they look to bounce back positively from the weekend's disappointment.

"The squad's all good," he said in his pre-match press conference. "We have no fresh injury concerns for tomorrow. We're just awaiting the news on Jefferson Lerma, other than that there's nothing really to worry about from the Luton game.

"Arnie's close, he's ready. He's had a really good couple of weeks training now and he's ready to go and ready to be involved. When you speak to him you can hear that he's ready to make a difference.

"We're really pleased, it's nice that we're now getting these players back fit. Chris Mepham, Jack Stacey, Arnie Danjuma - and Josh King played more minutes on Saturday.

"It's great that we're able to get the quality of those type of players back playing again and that can only help us going forwards."

Cameron Carter-Vickers has played for two weekends in a row after injury, and his impressive role in the defence have been noted by Tindall.

"Speaking on Cameron, we're really pleased with his two performances so far against Oldham and against Luton, I thought he delivered two really solid performances," he said.
