Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is planning on toning down the club's training schedule in a bid to avoid a major injury crisis.

Howe's table-topping side are expected to be without midfielders Sammy Igoe, Joe Partington and Marvin Bartley for the game against Burton on Saturday.

Shaun Cooper and Jeff Goulding are also on the sidelines while striker Steve Fletcher and winger Liam Feeney are doubts.

Howe, who is unable to bolster his squad due to the Cherries' ongoing transfer embargo, told the Bournemouth Echo: "The trouble with us at the moment is we're only a couple more injuries away from being in a little bit of trouble.

"This week in training we're going to have to be careful with the boys who we have got fit and really make sure, if we can, no one else goes down because it would leave us really thin on the ground.

"We're just going to have to ease their training schedule down a little bit. Bearing in mind the fact we've got a lot of games coming up, we're going to need all the squad fit."
