Bristol Rovers pair Cian Bolger and Chris Lines will return to the squad for the visit of Bournemouth.

Defender Bolger missed Saturday's 4-1 defeat at Leyton Orient through suspension, while midfielder Lines has missed the last two games due to a bruised toe.

Bolger is expected to go straight back into the starting line-up, although manager Dave Penney has the alternative option of switching Byron Anthony to centre-half and drafting Carl Regan into the right-back position.

Midfielder Stuart Campbell has missed the last four games and remains sidelined with a hamstring injury and David McCracken is still struggling with a similar problem.

Rovers have slipped to the bottom of the table after losing their last five league games, conceding 19 goals in the process.

Bournemouth midfielder Danny Ings is struggling to win his fitness battle.

Ings was forced out of Saturday's 1-0 win at Walsall due to an ankle injury and could face a late fitness test.

Recent signing Ben Williamson replaced Ings and is expected to make his first start for the Cherries if his team-mate fails to make it.

Midfielder Mark Molesley is edging closer to his long-awaited returned to first-team action following an 18-month lay-off due to a protracted foot injury, but is understood to require a couple more reserve-team run-outs.

Manager Lee Bradbury has no other new injury or suspension problems as his side bid to extend their unbeaten league run to seven matches.
