Bournemouth manager Lee Bradbury is set to welcome back Rhoys Wiggins for the visit of Swindon.

The defender is in contention to return to the starting line-up after missing the win over Plymouth due to a thigh strain and could replace Warren Cummings.

Goalkeeper Dan Thomas is likely to continue to occupy the bench as Jon Stewart is still struggling with a thigh strain, while defender Ryan Garry is still nowhere near a return as he battles with a shin problem.

Long-term absentees Mark Molesley and Steve Lovell continue to make progress but are still a way off a return to the first-team fold.

Midfielder Molesley made his comeback from an ankle injury in the Cherries' reserves and is on the way back to fitness, while striker Lovell is back running after struggling with a foot problem.

Swindon striker Vincent Pericard will again be assessed ahead of the game.

Pericard has missed the club`s last two games with a knee injury and boss Danny Wilson needs all the firepower he can get following Charlie Austin`s move to Burnley.

The Robins created countless chances against Exeter on Saturday`s but failed to hit the target in the goalless draw.

Left-back Michael Rose returns from his three-match suspension but faces a battle to regain his shirt with Town having somewhat plugged their leaky defence by keeping successive clean sheets.

The same can be said for centre-back Milan Misun who completed his move from Celtic on Friday, with manager Danny Wilson also checking on defender Lecsinel Jean-Francois after he missed out on Saturday through injury.

The game is likely to come too soon for goalkeeper David Lucas although he continues to make good progress with his knee problem.
