Grimsby could be boosted by the return of midfield trio Jamie Devitt, Dean Sinclair and Peter Sweeney for the visit of high-flying Bournemouth.

All three players missed last weekend`s draw at Morecambe. Devitt has recovered from the thigh injury that ruled him out but has been ill this week. Sinclair and Sweeney were absent with knee problems but have resumed training and will continue to be assessed.

On-loan defender Olly Lancashire also missed the Morecambe match. He returned to parent club Southampton to have a scan on the foot problem that has been troubling him recently. The centre-half has been advised to rest and remains a doubt.

Adrian Forbes is making progress in his recovery from a broken leg and it is hoped the striker will return to training next week.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has the luxury of no new injury or suspension worries.

Howe's second-placed side picked up a 2-2 draw against fellow promotion hopefuls Notts County on Monday and is hopeful of naming the same XI for the clash at Blundell Park.

That means Joe Partington will again start on the bench following his return from a back injury, with Sammy Igoe also likely to start as a substitute.

Howe is confident of including skipper Steve Fletcher in his starting line-up despite his substitution with a slight knock after an hour last time out.

Saturday's game will be Rhoys Wiggins' final appearance as his loan from Norwich is due to expire. The club have already confirmed they do not plan to seek an extension.
