Bournemouth chief Eddie Howe will check on the fitness of Ryan Garry before the visit of Hereford to Dean Court.

Garry has been struggling with a knee injury and the defender pulled up in training on Friday prior to the weekend defeat at Lincoln.

If the 26-year-old is fit enough to play he will slot in the Cherries backline, meaning Marvin Bartley will be pressed into action in midfield.

Howe drafted in Scott Guyett into the squad on the morning of Saturday`s loss as cover for the injured Garry and he is likely to retain a spot on the bench.

Meanwhile, striker Jeff Goulding will push for a start after coming on as a late sub following his return from suspension.

Lee Bradbury is set to continue after shaking off an ankle ligament injury and Sean Cooper (knee) could be in contention.

Hereford caretaker boss Graham Turner has hinted at possible changes for the trip.

Turner watched his side`s four-match winning sequence come to a disappointing end on Saturday courtesy of a 1-0 home defeat to lowly Grimsby.

Afterwards, he felt there were a couple of tired legs on show in the spring heat and suggested it could be time for "three of four" changes in order to see the improved performance he has called for, although drastic alterations are unlikely.

The Bulls will hope to have goalkeeping coach and reserve Chris Adamson back on the bench at Dean Court after he missed Saturday`s match having been involved in a car accident on Friday morning.

Adamson suffered minor injuries and was discharged from hospital but did not provide back-up to Adam Bartlett against the Mariners, with defender Richard Rose and winger Lewis Young volunteering their services if required.

On-loan midfielder Astrit Ajdarevic is again expected to miss out due to a hamstring injury.
