Warren Cummings is back in contention for Bournemouth`s clash with fellow promotion hopefuls Notts County.

The left-back has served a three-match suspension but on-loan Rhoys Wiggins is expected to keep his place, so Cummings may have to settle for bench duty.

Cherries boss Eddie Howe will have only 14 players to select from once again as Marvin Bartley suffered a recurrence of a calf injury after coming off the bench in Saturday's goalless draw with Cheltenham.

Bartley will not be involved against the Magpies, but veteran striker Steve Fletcher will soldier on despite having a niggling back problem.

Midfielder Sammy Igoe is hoping to return to training towards the end of the week as he continues his recovery from ankle ligament damage.

Joe Partington (back), Scott Guyett (knee), Mark Molesley (foot) and Shaun Cooper (hip) all remain on the sidelines.

Notts County have a fully-fit squad to choose from for the clash.

The fourth-placed Magpies are unbeaten in their last seven games in all competitions, with striker Lee Hughes in top form with 22 goals already this season.

Goalkeeper Kevin Pilkington and striker Delroy Facey are County's only absentees as they remain on loan at Luton and Lincoln respectively.

Caretaker boss Dave Kevan is hopeful his side can continue their good form against the Cherries. He told the club's official website: "We've got a lot of football to look forward to and we go to Bournemouth full of confidence.

"We'll try to patch the lads up and get them back out there on Tuesday and we're looking for more of the same."
