CHERRIES are boasting an almost clean bill of health ahead of tomorrow's crunch Championship clash with table-topping Reading.

Cherries will be without striker Joshua King, who is isolating having tested positive for COVID-19.

But the rest of Tindall's squad look set for action against the Royals, including Lewis Cook.

The midfielder was withdrawn during the first half of the victory at Birmingham City before the international break due to a "deep gash" to his shin which required stitches, caused following a challenge with Gary Gardner.

Asked for an update on the 23-year-old, Tindall said: "He’s been good, Lew. He missed the early part of the week after the Birmingham game, so he didn’t train for a few days but he’s had some good training days under his belt now with no problems.

"He’s come through that fine so he’s available for selection for tomorrow."

The boss added: "It’s disappointing to have a player of Josh King’s quality not available to us, but other than that thankfully everybody’s come back fine from international duty and got some minutes whilst away with their respective countries."

Steve Cook is also available again having served a one-match suspension.
