Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has admitted there is no guarantee Ryan Fraser will be back with Ipswich Town before the end of the season.

The loanee went back to his parent club after suffering a hamstring injury during the closing minutes of Town’s game at QPR last month, with Mick McCarthy today saying he was hopeful of having the Scot back in time for the trip to Wolves at the start of April.

“He’s (Fraser) been training and just felt (his hamstring) slightly, but the timeline for him, hopefully, would be getting on the bus for Wolves. That would be great,” McCarthy said.

However, Howe admitted Fraser had suffered a recent setback and that there was no guarantee he would be back at Portman Road by the end of the season.

Howe told the Bournemouth Echo: “Ryan came back to us for treatment. He had a little niggle, setback about a week ago so I wouldn’t say he was close to returning to Ipswich.”
