AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has revealed that Jermain Defoe is in contention to start against Watford after he came off the bench against West Bromwich Albion last weekend.
Elsewhere, Howe gave an update on skipper Simon Francis ahead of the Watford clash on Saturday.
"Jermain didn't have a knock but he felt a tightness in his groin after the Valencia pre-season game," he explained.
"He felt it until before the West Bromwich Albion game but he came on in that game and is in contention to start this weekend.
"Simon Francis has received treatment this week and we'll wait on him. We'll have to make a late decision on his fitness.
"Elsewhere, as I said last week, Junior Stanislas is out and Callum Wilson continues to make good progress from a long-term injury."
