Surman boost for Cherries

Bournemouth are boosted by the return of Andrew Surman to full fitness as they look to continue their late push for the play-offs with victory over QPR.

The Norwich loanee had to settle for a late cameo appearance off the bench as the Cherries won 4-2 at Birmingham last week having suffered from a glute injury, but he is pushing for a return to the starting line-up.

Striker Tokelo Rantie is likely to be involved despite having flown to South Africa following the birth of his son on Tuesday while left-back Charlie Daniels is back in full training but this match comes too soon for the former Leyton Orient man.

One player who definitely will not be involved is Donal McDermott who left the club on Thursday by mutual consent.

Charlie Austin has been passed fit for QPR.

Rangers' 15-goal top scorer returned to training this week after two months on the sidelines with a shoulder injury.

Jermaine Jenas is also set to travel after recovering from a hamstring injury but fellow midfielder Joey Barton is still out with a thigh problem.

Defenders Aaron Hughes (hamstring) and Nedum Onuoha (calf) picked up knocks against Blackpool last week and miss out along with Andy Johnson, Matty Phillips (both ankle) and Ale Faurlin (knee).
