Bournemouth's fight against relegation from League Two has been given a boost after defender Ryan Garry returned to action.

The former Arsenal trainee, 25, has been dogged with a series of frustrating injuries since joining the Cherries in 2007 and has made just two first-team appearances this season.

However, he returned to action in a behind-closed-doors match at Dean Court on Monday and could come into contention for Friday's trip to fellow strugglers Grimsby.
