Goulding banned for Stanley clash
Goulding was sent off just a minute after coming on in the 3-2 defeat to Grimsby last weekend for an elbow on Jude Stirling and will begin a three-match ban. The Cherries will also be without defender Rhoys Wiggins after he returned to parent club Norwich following the end of his loan spell, meaning Warren Cummings is likely to come in at left-back. The absence of Goulding and Wiggins means Howe has a threadbare squad to choose from although the club are still waiting to hear whether their latest attempt to ease their transfer embargo has been successful. Bournemouth have settled their outstanding tax bill but still do not know whether they will be given special dispensation to bolster their ranks with the loan deadline having passed at 5pm on Thursday. Midfielder Mark Molesley has stepped up his rehabilitation from the foot injury that has kept him out of action since October but is still some way off a return.
