JASON Pearce is in line for a shock return to Cherries' starting 11 this afternoon.

The inspirational defender has been sidelined for the past six games with a broken toe, but has travelled with Eddie Howe's squad for today's clash against Rochdale.

The Echo understands Pearce is set to start alongside Ryan Garry, with Shaun Cooper ruled out by an Achilles injury.
