Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has injury concerns ahead of the game against Yeovil.

Shaun Cooper, Shwan Jalal and Marc Pugh all suffered injuries in Saturday's draw with Leyton Orient and will be assessed before Howe names his squad.

Cooper limped off in the first-half with a calf injury and is unlikely to feature against the Glovers while goalkeeper Jalal spent the night in hospital with a facial injury that needed stitches and is doubtful.

Pugh, who scored both goals at the Matchroom Stadium, slid off the field of play and caught his knee on a metal fitting, which required stitches and could rule him out of Yeovil's visit.

Some good news for Howe, is that Harry Arter is back to full fitness and likely to retain his place in the Cherries side.

Yeovil manager Terry Skiverton is without the suspended Gavin Williams for the trip.

Williams picked up his fifth booking of the season in the defeat to Charlton at the weekend and serves a one-match ban.

Skiverton has also bolstered his attacking options with the loan signing of Ivan Sproule from Bristol City who goes straight into the Glovers squad to face the Cherries.

Craig Alcock returned from a back injury at the Valley and is likely to retain his place in defence while Chelsea loan signing Adam Phillip is pushing for a start up front after making his debut from the substitutes bench on Saturday.

Andy Welsh and Luke Freeman both missed the defeat to Charlton and could return from injury.
