Wilson, according to Howe, was “close” to being fit for yesterday’s 1-1 draw against Bournemouth. However, it was felt that it would be a “risk” to play him so soon – and the 30-year-old is now pencilled in to be involved against Fulham on October 1.

"So, we hope that with a bit more time, there’s a chance that the next game could be good for him.”
