Duo poised to keep places

Bournemouth have no fresh injury worries for the visit of Leeds.

Manager Eddie Howe was able to recall Yann Kermorgant (heel) and Matt Ritchie (illness) to the starting line-up for the 1-0 win at Barnsley on Saturday and the pair look set to keep their places.

If Howe does decide to mix things up then he has a number of options including Harry Arter, Marc Pugh and Elliott Ward, who has featured in the last two squads having recovered from injury.

With Charlie Daniels still sidelined with a torn thigh muscle, it means left-back Ian Harte will line up against the club where he played over 200 games between 1994 and 2004.

Leeds will be without Connor Wickham following the on-loan striker's recall by parent club Sunderland.

Wickham had been scheduled to stay at Leeds until the end of the season and his return could see Noel Hunt, Dominic Poleon or Cameron Stewart back in the starting line-up.

Winger Jimmy Kebe remains sidelined with a hamstring problem and defender Lee Peltier has joined Nottingham Forest on loan for the rest of the season.

Leeds secured their first win in seven games at the weekend against Millwall to halt a run of three straight defeats.
