Strike duo are picks for Cherries

Huddersfield manager Mark Robins is expected to name an unchanged starting line-up as his side chase their first home league win of the season against Bournemouth.


Town registered their first league success at Millwall last week and Robins, who has no new injury or suspension worries, is unlikely to tinker with a winning formula.


Midfield pair Keith Southern (calf) and Anton Robinson (knee) have yet to feature this season and remain sidelined, but Robins has plenty of options.


Midfielder Oscar Gobern, striker Sean Scannell, defender Calum Woods and winger Danny Ward are among those pushing for recalls.


Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe looks set to continue with Brett Pitman and Lewis Grabban up front.


Pitman returned from injury in the 1-0 win over Wigan last time out and will continue playing behind Grabban who has adapted well to life in the second tier, with Wes Thomas on the bench once more.


Fellow forward Wes Fogden made his return from a heel injury in a midweek development squad friendly and he is now edging closer to being available for the first team.


The Cherries will looking to bounce back from their previous away trip which saw them beaten 6-1 at Watford.
