BOSS Eddie Howe expressed his delight at seeing Emerson Hyndman back in action following a “difficult” injury.

The American midfielder recovered from the stress fracture to his foot sustained at the end of his loan spell with Rangers.

Having played in a development game for Cherries under-21s against Brentford on his return, Hyndman was named in the first-team squad for the Carabao Cup win at Birmingham.

A day later, he scored for the under-21s in a 4-1 win over Exeter City.

Asked about the former Fulham man, Howe told the Daily Echo: “It is really nice to see Emerson back. We have had to treat his injury very carefully.

“It was a difficult one to manage during pre-season, where he would train and just suffer a reaction.

“It looks like now he is over that and, in the couple of games he has had, he has done very well, so I am looking to see more of him in the next few weeks."
