MANAGER Jason Tindall hailed the performance of returning Cherries striker Joshua King and said he would “continue to get better”.

The Norwegian frontman, who was heavily linked with a summer move away from Vitality Stadium, played 90 minutes for the first time at club level since July during Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Watford.

King had been ruled out of contests against Queens Park Rangers and Cardiff with a dead leg, as well as suffering from a migraine which forced him to miss victory over Coventry earlier this month.

But now he is back leading the line for his side – Tindall is keen for King to kick on.

Speaking after the draw with the Hornets, the boss said: “I thought he performed very well Josh King, considering he hasn’t played for us for some time.

“Then to be thrown into a tough game, I felt he delivered a really good performance.

“Kingy is one that will continue to get better with the more he trains and the more minutes he plays.”

King is expected to be involved when the Dorset club host Bristol City on Wednesday.
