Bournemouth have no new injury worries ahead of their game with Notts County.

Reserve goalkeeper Dan Thomas will return to the squad after his thigh injury prevented the Cherries from having a keeper on the bench during last weekend's 3-0 win at Tranmere.

Josh McQuoid will continue up-front for Eddie Howe's men after he revelled in filling the boots of now-departed hitman Brett Pitman at Prenton Park, scoring one and laying on another.

Fellow forward Steve Fletcher remains sidelined with a heel problem.

Of the long term absentees, Mark Molesley has returned to light training after a year out of the game with a foot injury, although he remains a good distance from match action.

Steve Lovell is targeting an October return following his summer ankle surgery.

Notts County boss Craig Short faces a selection dilemma ahead of the trip.

The Magpies recorded their first league win of the season against Dagenham last weekend and Short made six changes to that side against Watford in the Carling Cup.

Defenders Liam Chilvers, Stephen Hunt and Krystian Pearce and forwards Kevin Smith, Jake Jervis and Luke Hubbins were all selected as Notts won at Vicarage Road on Tuesday night.

Short must now decide which of those players remain in the team with Mike Edwards, Graeme Lee, Jon Harley, John Spicer, Craig Westcarr and Derby target Ben Burgess all vying for recalls.

Lee Hughes remains out but should be back in contention next week while fellow forward Luke Rodgers (ankle) and goalkeeper Rob Burch (toe) are ahead of schedule in their recoveries but also remain sidelined.
