Cherries down to the bare bones
The League Two leaders have lost midfielder Anthony Edgar, who has returned to West Ham after his loan spell, while teenager George Webb has left the club in search of first-team football. Manager Eddie Howe could have Sammy Igoe and Joe Partington on the bench, though. Experienced campaigner Igoe has missed the last eight games since scoring twice in a 3-1 win over Lincoln with a bruised marrow, while Partington (groin) has not played for two months. Both have trained this week and should be named among the replacements, if only to boost the numbers available to Howe. Captain Shaun Cooper remains out with a hip problem and Scott Guyett will miss at least another month with a knee injury.
