Bournemouth striker Benik Afobe is set to miss the clash with Huddersfield Town on Saturday as he struggles with injury.

Afobe injury worry for Cherries

The 24-year-old picked up a muscle injury in the defeat to Chelsea last month and has been out of the side since.

He's unlikely to have shaken off the problem in time for the clash with Huddersfield this weekend when the Premier League resumes following the international break.

Afobe did not fearture for DR Congo as they failed to grasp their opportunity to go to the World Cup finals in Russia next summer.

DR Congo had been aiming to snatch top spot in their qualifying group from Tunisia but their goalless draw against Libya has ensured the Tunisians top the group by a point to qualify instead.
