BOSS Eddie Howe admits Yann Kermorgant is facing a race against time to be in contention for Cherries’ trip to former club Charlton.

Kermorgant has been sidelined with a heel injury since bagging a hat-trick on his full debut for Cherries during their 5-0 rout of Doncaster.

The Frenchman, who has missed Cherries’ past three games, has been receiving intensive treatment, both at Dean Court and at the Villa-Stuart Clinic in Rome.

Kermorgant, a hugely popular figure at the Valley, swapped struggling Charlton for Cherries when he completed a £400,000 move on the final day of the transfer window.

Howe told the Daily Echo: “We firmly believe it is just a bruise so it is just a case of whether Yann could tolerate any pain in that area. We will, hopefully, step up his rehab in the next couple of days and see if he could be fit for Charlton.”

Surely Yann will be back the Charlton game and this is an Eddie mind-game. Fingers crossed and looking forward to seeing him up his goal tally at the Valley tommorrow! The pub and takeaway planning starts today!

It may not be a good idea to play him against his old club if there is any doubt about his fitness. Due to him being an ex Charlton player he could attract some unwanted attention from their centre halves and they may play him out of the game simply beacuse they will know his strengths and weaknesses.
.
Best leave him until the following game, if he is fit.

I can't disagree with your logic Smhinto, but I do like Yanns goals-to-games ratio for us.
