Charlie Reece is expected to return to Bristol Rovers' squad for the home clash with Bournemouth.

The midfielder has missed the Pirates` last four matches due to a rib injury, but is now back in contention.

Defender Byron Anthony returns from suspension, but Carl Regan must serve the final game of his three-match ban.

Striker Will Hoskins has had an extra week of training as Rovers were not involved in last weekend's second-round FA Cup ties and is hoping to play a bigger role after returning to the bench following an ankle injury.

Manager Paul Trollope, who has no other new injury or suspension worries, is hoping his side can bounce back from a 1-0 defeat to Orient in their last home league match.

Rookie Jon Stewart is set to continue in goal for Bournemouth.

Stewart, who kept a clean sheet on his first start for the club against Yeovil last week, is deputising for Shwan Jalal who is out for around six weeks with a fractured eye socket he suffered in the draw at Leyton Orient on November 20.

Cherries boss Eddie Howe will have to decide who replaces departed top-scorer Josh McQuoid, who has joined Millwall on loan, with Nicholas Bignall and Michael Symes vying for his place.

Youngster Danny Ings, who signed a new contract with the club this week, is set to be included in the squad after he was recalled from his loan at Dorchester where he netted seven goals in 13 games.

Fellow forward Lyle Taylor should also make the trip and will be looking to make his seventh appearance since joined from Ryman League outfit Concord Rangers in the summer, with his half-dozen so far coming as a substitute.

Bournemouth are unbeaten in four league matches and are only two points outside League One's automatic promotion spots but they have only registered one league win away from Dean Court so far this season.
