Injuries hamper high-flying Cherries
Sammy Igoe missed last weekend's victory at Darlington with a knee problem and is not expected to return against the Brewers. Winger Liam Feeney picked up a thigh strain in training this week and is rated as doubtful. Joe Partington sustained a thigh injury in a reserve team game and could miss out as Eddie Howe's side look to maintain their 100% home record in the league. And Marvin Bentley is expected to be sidelined for a fortnight after breaking a bone in his right hand. Veteran striker Steve Fletcher (knee) could also miss out, while Shaun Cooper (hip) and Jeff Goulding (ankle) are long-term absentees.
