EDDIE Howe revealed Junior Stanislas had overcome injury and would be in contention to return in "a week or two".

Stanislas has recovered from a long-standing groin problem and is now building up his fitness in a bid to force his way into the Cherries side.

The former Burnley winger has been working alongside Callum Wilson, who is on the road back from the serious knee injury he sustained in February.

Howe told the Daily Echo: "Junior is doing well. We're pleased with him, he is working extremely hard.

"He is doing a lot of his work with Callum at the moment. They are at similar levels in terms of building up their fitness before they come back into the group to train.

"Junior will eventually overtake Callum because of the length of time Callum has been out.

"I don't see Junior being a long-term problem for us. He has been really put through his paces with the sport scientist so we're confident the injury has been dealt with and now it's just a case of getting him fit."
