Wiggins out for Cherries

18 March 2011 11:00
Bournemouth boss Lee Bradbury will be without Rhoys Wiggins for the trip to Carlisle. The first-choice left-back suffered a gluteal injury after only 33 minutes of last weekend's 3-1 defeat against Southampton and has not recovered in time. Fellow left-back Warren Cummings could replace Wiggins in the starting line-up but will have to pass a late fitness test on an ankle injury, so Stephen Purches is on standby. Michael Symes is 50/50 with an abductor strain, while fellow striker Steve Lovell is also a doubt despite playing 45 minutes for the reserves in midweek. Back-up goalkeeper Jon Stewart will not be involved due to a club ban imposed for disciplinary reasons, so Dan Thomas will be among the substitutes after being recalled from a loan spell at nearby Dorchester. Meanwhile, defender Ryan Garry has taken up a scouting role within the club as he continues to recover from a long-term problem.
