Ryan Garry and Sammy Igoe are once again rated as doubtful for Bournemouth's home clash with Barnet.

Defender Garry has missed the last two games with a groin injury and boss Eddie Howe will monitor his fitness ahead of the game.

Experienced midfielder Igoe has had a stop-start season due to injuries and is currently struggling with the hamstring problem he sustained before a reserve team game last week.

If both players are ruled out Howe will be forced to contend with naming only four substitutes once again.

The Cherries boss could opt to start with striker Alan Connell, who came off the bench at half-time and scored the equaliser five minutes from time in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Macclesfield.

Veteran striker Steve Fletcher would probably be the man to make way if Connell is recalled, while Joe Partington (back) is unlikely to feature and Scott Guyett is a long-term absentee with a knee injury.

Barnet could be without veteran forward Paul Furlong for the trip.

Furlong, 41, was handed a recall at Port Vale on Saturday and made the first of John O`Flynn`s brace in a welcome 2-0 win for Ian Hendon`s side.

But the former Chelsea striker had to come off after an hour when he was hit in the eye with the ball and spent several hours in hospital on Saturday night.

Jake Hyde could replace him at Dean Court, while midfielder Mark Hughes is available to return after a two-game suspension.

Defender Clovis Kamdjo played the full 90 minutes after recovering from a knee injury but Ismail Yakubu is still struggling with a back problem.

Hendon named two goalkeepers on the bench at Vale Park as he was short of numbers and could do the same again.
