EDDIE Howe says Cherries are "having to be careful" with Lloyd Kelly over his latest injury.

The defender is set to miss tomorrow's clash with Wolves due to a thigh problem, joining the likes of Joshua King (hamstring), David Brooks (ankle), Charlie Daniels and Junior Stanislas (both knee) on the sidelines, while Ryan Fraser (knee) faces a late fitness test.

Howe told the Daily Echo: “Lloyd is still missing. I don’t think it’s serious. He was out running very recently and just felt a little bit of discomfort after.

“We’re just having to be careful with him at this moment in time.

“I don’t think he’ll be out for too long, but he’s going to be out for this game.”

And Howe also provided an update on injured midfielder Andrew Surman (knee).

The Cherries boss said: “He hasn’t been training yet, he’s due to go outside I think next week. We anticipate that he should be a few weeks (away).”

King is set to miss out for the first time this season after picking up an injury during international duty.

Norway were unable to secure a top-two spot in their Euro 2020 qualification group regardless of the result in their final match, which they won 2-1 with King on target.

The Cherries man was withdrawn in the 89th minute and is now set for a few weeks on the sidelines.

“I think it’s the perils of international football from a manager in my position,” said Howe.

“I think when players go away, the big thing is you want them to come back fit and healthy and obviously you can’t control that.

“No manager in international football wants a player to get injured, it just happens.

“It was late in the game, but what can we do about it now?

“We just have to get him fit again.”
