Bournemouth boss Howe: Stanislas important for season run-in

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe says Junior Stanislas' return to action will be crucial in the season run-in.

The winger replaced the injured Joshua King to make his first top-flight start since December in Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Liverpool.

Stanislas has had plenty of fitness concerns himself, starting just two Premier League matches in the past 11 months due to hamstring and knee complaints.

Howe told the Daily Echo: "He can be huge, as can all the other players that are battling to get fit, as can everybody in our squad.

"We need everyone now to really grow with the challenge and embrace the challenge that we face and give everything to the cause."
