Arter concern for Swansea clash

Bournemouth's Harry Arter will undergo a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's home clash against Swansea City.

Republic of Ireland international Arter suffered the calf injury in the 3-2 victory over West Ham United last time out but managed to come through the entire 90 minutes.

Manager Eddie Howe has now confirmed the midfielder is doubtful for the crunch clash against the Swans and will be given a late check to assess his fitness.

"Harry is a doubt for tomorrow’s game. He felt his calf during the West Ham game but didn’t come off and got through the full 90," he said. "It was a big effort from him, so we’ve just been mindful of the injury and nursed him through training this week."

Forward Junior Stanislas, who has not featured since the 2-0 loss to Crystal Palace on January 31 due to a groin problem, could be included in the match-day squad although he will also have a late fitness test.

Howe added: "Junior Stanislas is making progress after a groin problem, but again, it’ll be a late call on that one. Other than that, we don’t have any other concerns ahead of the game."

The Cherries will be without defender Tyrone Mings, who serves the second of his five-game ban, while striker Callum Wilson, goalkeeper Adam Federici and left-back Rhoys Wiggins are all long-term absentees.
