Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe could be set to name an unchanged side for the top-of-the-table clash with Dagenham.

With the Cherries still facing a transfer embargo, Howe's options are limited and he was only able to name six substitutes for the 3-1 win at Macclesfield on Saturday.

Sammy Igoe was one of those on the bench after recent trouble with a knee problem but he could be pushing for a start after making a full recovery.

Joe Partington was also named on the bench against the Silkmen despite not being fully fit and he will again be involved in the matchday squad.

Mark Molesley (foot), Shaun Cooper (hip) and Scott Guyett are all unavailable as the league leaders aim to increase the three-point gap between themselves and third-placed Dagenham.

Dagenham manager John Still will be without captain Mark Arber and vice-captain Stuart Thurgood.

Arber missed the 2-1 defeat to Rochdale on Saturday after taking a knock to his knee in a tackle in training on Friday and could be out for as long as a month.

Thurgood took the armband against Dale but limped out in the second-half with a thigh strain which will sideline him.

Jon Nurse will come back into the starting XI, with Peter Gain moving back into the middle.

Striker Wesley Thomas begins a three-match ban for violent conduct after he was sent off in the dying stages on Saturday while winger Darren Currie goes straight into the squad following his arrival on loan from Chesterfield.

Danny Spiller is back in training after a hamstring injury but is two weeks away from playing.
