Shaun Cooper is set to return to action this week in a reserve match against Plymouth Argyle Having missed the entire season so far, Shaun Cooper is hoping to given the Cherries promotion ambitions a timely boost following a lengthy lay off following major hip surgery last summer. Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Cooper is quoted as saying: "If I don’t have any more setbacks, I’ll definitely be available for the squad with a few games left over. It would be nice just to get involved and, hopefully, play a small part if the chance becomes available. We want to get promoted and do it automatically and the lads are all really focused on it. Training has been different class. The tempo and the work rate of the lads is brilliant – you can see why we’ve done so well this season. It’s just good to be a part of it every day again".
