Cherries set to pick Camp

Bournemouth could hand Lee Camp his Cherries debut when they host Bolton on Saturday.

The Northern Ireland international joined the club on loan from West Brom on Thursday and could get the nod over Ryan Allsop, who started the 2-1 defeat at Leicester last weekend.

Defender Elliott Ward was sent off in that loss and he will miss out through suspension. His absence is set to open the door for Tommy Elphick to be reunited with Steve Cook at the heart of the Cherries' defence.

Meanwhile influential winger Matt Ritchie says he is at a "good stage" in his rehabilitation from a thigh injury picked up during pre-season but this match comes too soon for the former Swindon man.

Dougie Freedman has no new injury or suspension concerns as he looks to extend Bolton's unbeaten run to a sixth game.

The Trotters have only won once in the Sky Bet Championship all year but have lifted themselves out of the relegation zone with recent results.

The only players definitely unavailable to the former Crystal Palace boss are goalkeeper Adam Bogdan (knee), full-back Marc Tierney (broken foot) and the trio of long-term knee injury victims Joe Riley, Mark Davies and Stuart Holden.

Full-back Kevin McNaughton extended his loan deal from Barclays Premier League club Cardiff in midweek and should retain his place in the back four.
