Bournemouth Vs Accrington Stanley, Sat 27 Mar 2010

Published Add your comment

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe will be without striker Jeff Goulding for the visit of Accrington.

Goulding was sent off just a minute after coming on in the 3-2 defeat to Grimsby last weekend for an elbow on Jude Stirling and will begin a three-match ban.

The Cherries will also be without defender Rhoys Wiggins after he returned to parent club Norwich following the end of his loan spell, meaning Warren Cummings is likely to come in at left-back.

The absence of Goulding and Wiggins means Howe has a threadbare squad to choose from although the club are still waiting to hear whether their latest attempt to ease their transfer embargo has been successful.

Bournemouth have settled their outstanding tax bill but still do not know whether they will be given special dispensation to bolster their ranks with the loan deadline having passed at 5pm on Thursday.

Midfielder Mark Molesley has stepped up his rehabilitation from the foot injury that has kept him out since October but is still some way off a return.

Accrington manager John Coleman will be without striker Michael Symes once again for the visit to the Dean Court.

Symes will serve the second match of his three-match ban after being sent off in last weekend's defeat to Rochdale for an off-the-ball clash.

Bobby Grant replaced Symes for the 2-0 defeat to Burton on Tuesday night and is set to keep his place in the starting line-up.

Despite seeing his side slip to their second home defeat in a week, Coleman is likely to keep faith with the side that began the clash with Burton.
