Symes still missing for Cherries

Manager Lee Bradbury will again be without Michael Symes as Bournemouth travel to Bristol Rovers.The eight-goal striker is back in training, but his abductor muscle has still not healed sufficiently for him to return.Bradbury, though, saw his striking options boosted during Friday's dramatic 3-3 draw with Peterborough after Steve Lovell made his first appearance of the season as a second-half substitute following an ankle injury.Lovell may again have to settle for a place on the bench, but the same cannot be said for player-assistant manager Steve Fletcher, who netted after coming off as a substitute against Posh.The Cherries have faltered lately, having not won in their last five games, but will be hoping to further cement their position in the npower League One play-off places by overcoming the Pirates.
