League One club Bournemouth have received a boost after an x-ray revealed Shaun MacDonald does not have a broken toe.
The midfielder, who signed from Swansea in the summer, has missed the Cherries' last three outings after suffering a badly bruised toe in the 3-0 defeat to Chesterfield.
Despite the good news, MacDonald has still not set a date on his return to action.
"Obviously it's nice to find out you've not fractured or broken anything but it's still a bit sore," he told Bournemouth's official website.
"I'm working hard in the gym trying to get back as soon as possible. At the moment I don't want to push it too hard.
"The fans have been brilliant and really welcomed me and I've said that in my previous interviews. I thank them for that and hope I can get back and score some goals to repay them."
