ANDONI Iraola hopes Tyler Adams will be available for the final two games of the season, after a “frustrating” spell with injury.

The USA international has made just three appearances for Cherries all campaign, largely ruled out due to hamstring issues.

Adams returned in March, but has been unavailable for the past five games having woken up one morning with back spasms.

The 25-year-old will again not feature when Cherries go to Arsenal this weekend, but Iraola is hopeful the midfielder could be involved for upcoming matches against Brentford and Chelsea.

Asked if Adams was still having back issues, Iraola told the Daily Echo: “Yes he has.

“Tyler will not travel. We have only two games, but I hope he is ready to play against Brentford.

“Tav (Marcus Tavernier) and him are the ones that probably can return next week.

“But obviously frustration, because after a very long injury, everything was going really well with the hamstring. He played 90 minutes and now he has back problems.

“I think he is recovering well. Also we don’t want to take any unnecessary risk with him, so we are giving him the time he needs.

"Now with the points we have, it is not reasonable to risk anyone.”

Iraola also confirmed Marcos Senesi is still feeling the effects of an issue which forced him off at Wolverhampton Wanderers last month, although he did start and score in the subsequent game, against Brighton & Hove Albion.

“We are recovering players,” said Iraola.

“Zaba (Illia Zabarnyi), Romain (Faivre) and Philip (Billing).

“There are one or two we have to see if they can start or not, from the ones that were involved against Brighton.

“But I hope it is a better situation than the one we had against Brighton.”

On Senesi, Iraola added: “For me, his mentality is very good. He was not 100 per cent against Brighton.

“He finished with pain in his back against Wolves.

“Also, he is one of the ones I am not sure if he is going to be able to start tomorrow, because he is still with these issues.

“But, knowing Marcos, I think he will push and he will want to because he has done it in the last games and is performing so well.”
