ExWHUemployee has revealed that West Ham United defender Craig Dawson may well be fit to play in the club’s upcoming game after training this week.
However, in a positive development on the situation, Ex revealed on The West Ham Way Patreon page that the 32-year-old has a ‘good chance’ of being declared fit.
He wrote: “Craig Dawson has been back in training from his recent dead leg and has a good chance of being available for the game tonight.”
TIF Thoughts on Craig Dawson and West Ham…
Dawson has only been able to play in two Premier League games all season, with West Ham winning on both occasions. On top of that, he has won four from four in the Europa Conference League group stages (via Transfermarkt).
With that in mind, it’s fair to assume David Moyes will want him as an option against the Cherries. However, while the centre-back may have trained, that doesn’t necessarily mean he will be fit enough to start the match.
Still, seeing as the Hammers have only won once in the league without Dawson this term, they may well rush him back into action against Bournemouth as they aim to lift themselves out of the bottom four.
