Danny Hollands and Michael Symes have joined the growing injury list at Bournemouth.

Both players could miss the start of the season after they were injured during the pre-season friendly against Fulham on Saturday. Hollands has a hernia problem while Symes sustained a groin injury.

The Cherries have already seen Steve Fletcher and Danny Ings suffer injuries during the club's pre-season preparations.

"It is always the worry with pre-season. You need to get people fit and you need to keep as many as possible fit. We have been unfortunate in the past few days," Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe told the Echo.

"We have lost a few players and this is the big worry for us. It is pretty bleak at the moment so let's hope it doesn't get any worse."

He added: "These are big blows for us and we are looking really light on numbers at the moment. It is even more frustrating because all the injuries have been picked up in games so there isn't a lot we can do to adjust our training."
