Cherries pick from few for Trophy tie
Cherries manager Eddie Howe has an injury-ravaged squad and could only name three substitutes for the goalless draw at Port Vale on Saturday because of the transfer embargo currently placed on the club. Key midfielder Sammy Igoe is ruled out with a knee injury while defender Ryan Garry has been diagnosed with swine flu. Striker Jeff Goulding is still nursing an ankle problem and Marvin Bentley remains on the sidelines with a broken hand. Mark Molesley has a thigh knock and Joe Partington is rated 50/50 with a groin injury as Howe looks for ways to boost the numbers available to him.
