Bournemouth boss Lee Bradbury admits his side will miss injured on-loan midfielder Scott Malone.

Malone has made 21 appearances for the Cherries this term, scoring three goals, but sustained a hamstring tear during Saturday's win at Huddersfield.

The 20-year-old looks unlikely to recover before his loan terminates on January 7, but his manager is hoping he may yet make a return to the Seward Stadium.

Bradbury told the club's official website: "It looks like he's got a grade one tear which mean he will be out for two to three weeks.

"He's done well for us and we will miss him.

"He will have his rehab here, then see where things go in the next week or so."
