Published Add your comment

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe will include new signing Adam Smith in his squad for the clash against Carlisle.

The England Under-19 international defender has signed on a one-month loan from Spurs.

On-loan goalkeeper Jon Stewart will have to be content with a place on the bench while experienced striker Steven Fletcher is pushing for a start after returning from a heel injury.

Striker Lee Bradbury and defender Stephen Purches haven't trained all week because of injury and are doubtful for the game at Dean Court.

Striker Michael Symes is definitely out with shoulder problems and Tim Stephenson, who damaged knee ligaments in a reserve game last week, faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Carlisle boss Greg Abbott has no fresh injury concerns.

Captain Paul Thirlwell continues to miss out with knee ligament damage while Danny Livesy remains a doubt with a groin problem.

Mark Bridge-Wilkinson is also a concern with an ankle injury.

Graham Kavanagh and loanee Ben Marshall are pushing for starts after scoring in the reserve team's 5-2 win over Stockport in midweek while Kevan Hurst also played 90 minutes following a groin problem and could make the squad.

Olly Norwood should keep his place after an impressive debut against Brighton and Frank Simek will retain the captain's armband as the Cumbrians go in search of a fourth successive clean sheet in League One.
