Bournemouth Vs Leyton Orient, Sat 5 Feb 2011

Bournemouth manager Lee Bradbury will hand Danny Hollands another start in midfield against Leyton Orient.

The 25-year-old impressed in the 3-2 midweek win against Swindon, replacing the recently-departed Marvin Bartley in the heart of midfield.

Bartley linked up with former Cherries boss Eddie Howe at Burnley on transfer deadline day and Bradbury will now start with Hollands when the Os come to Dean Court.

Bradbury, though, may have a decision to make at left-back.

Warren Cummings has deputised for the past two games in place of regular starter Rhoys Wiggins, who has been struggling with a thigh strain.

Wiggins failed a late fitness test for the Swindon game but may come in for Cummings should he recover in time.

Mitchell Nelson is likely to be included in the squad after returning from a loan spell with Eastbourne.

Adam Chambers is set to miss out for Orient.

The injury-jinxed midfielder started his first match since November against Brighton in midweek but lasted just five minutes before suffering a gashed shin which required more than 20 stitches.

Club captain Stephen Dawson, who started on the bench as he was still feeling a dead leg, came on to replace Chambers and is likely to start at Dean Court.

Veteran striker Scott McGleish was not risked against the Seagulls due to an ankle knock and will be checked over.

Full-back Elliot Omozusi is close to recovering from a hamstring injury but boss Russell Slade is unlikely to change a back four which held the leaders to a goalless draw.
