Bournemouth have injury worrries for West Ham clash


Former Hammer Ryan Fredericks may miss the vital clash at the Vitality Stadium later today.

Bournemouth have three injury worries as they go into the game which could define our battle out of the lower half of the table.

David Moyes meanwhile is only without  Italy centre-forward Gianluca Scamacca for certain, who underwent knee surgery last weekend and who will be out for the next couple of months according to the medics.

Cheeries boss Gary O’Neil will be without Ivory Coast midfielder Hamed Traorè (ankle) and as mentioned has doubts over Ryan Fredericks (lower leg) and Junior Stanislas (other), but he may see Uruguayan left-back Matías Viña (back) return to the team.

A win would see the Hammers rise above Bournemouth and Wolves into 13th place with 34 pints although the rise above the Molineux outfit – who were beaten by Leicester City yesterday – would be on the strength of  goal difference.
