SCOTT Parker admits he is still unsure how severe Adam Smith's knee injury will prove to be.

Having nailed down his starting spot, the full-back has missed the past two matches due to the problem.

In Smith's absence, Cherries won 2-0 at Bristol City on Saturday before edging past Stoke City 1-0 on Tuesday night, with Jack Stacey deputising at right-back.

Asked for an update on the 30-year-old, Parker said: "I’m not 100 per cent sure. He saw a specialist (on Tuesday).

"We’ll get in tomorrow (Wednesday) and have a clearer idea exactly where Adam is."

Speaking about Smith's injury at the weekend, Parker said: "Adam Smith is just struggling with a knee.

"He picked up a bit of a knee injury. He had an injection midweek. We tried to go for this game (Bristol City), it's not proven to be the case."
