HARRY ARTER HAS emerged as an injury doubt for the Republic of Ireland’s upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Wales.

The Bournemouth midfielder has not trained all week for the Cherries and manager Eddie Howe revealed that he will miss the side’s clash against Leicester City tomorrow.

“The problem isn’t a serious one, but he is injured and hasn’t trained with the group this week,” Howe told reporters at his Friday press conference.

Arter hasn’t played since the 15 September and missed Bournemouth’s last league fixture against Everton.

However, he was included in Martin O’Neill’s squad for the crucial double-header. So, it would represent a serious blow if he misses out.

Jon Walters and James McCarthy are absent for both fixtures because of injury while James McClean and Robbie Brady are suspended for next Friday’s clash with Moldova.
