Fogden doubt for Cherries
Bournemouth are sweating on the fitness of midfielder Wes Fogden ahead of their clash with Exeter.
Fogden suffered an ankle injury during the 1-0 defeat at Chesterfield last time out but, with the fixture having been put back three days because of the freezing conditions over the weekend, he may have had enough time to recover in time to face the Grecians.
However, manager Lee Bradbury will definitely be able to call on new signings Matt Tubbs and Donal McDermott, who joined the Cherries last week, and winger Scott Malone is available after making a full recovery from a hamstring tear.
Bradbury will be missing captain Adam Barrett, who has been ruled out with a hamstring problem, while Mathieu Baudry (hamstring), Joe Partington, Shaun Cooper, Mark Molesley and Nathan Byrne (ankle) are still short of match fitness.
Striker Charlie Sheringham will miss the rest of the season with a foot injury, while goalkeeper Shwan Jalal has been sidelined after undergoing a routine back operation.
Dan Thomas has been recalled from his loan spell at AFC Totton and could feature on the bench as back-up to Darryl Flahavan.
Luke O'Brien is set for his Exeter debut.
The full-back arrived at St James Park from Bradford on transfer deadline day and could slot straight into the Grecians' starting XI following the sale of Scott Golbourne to Barnsley.
O'Brien will compete with Billy Jones for the left-back position at Dean Court, and manager Paul Tisdale otherwise has a fully-fit squad at his disposal.
After extending his loan from Reading by a further month, Jake Taylor is set to start in attack, while Liam Sercombe has recovered from injury.
Midfielder Sercombe could come back into the side in place of Scot Bennett, as Exeter go to Dorset chasing their first victory - and their first goal - in four npower League One matches.
Malone stars as Cherries pick of Exeter
Scott Malone came off the bench to spark a stirring second-half show by AFC Bournemouth as they scored twice in six minutes to beat League One strugglers Exeter 2-0 at a freezing Dean Court.
Sidelined with a hamstring injury for the past two months, Malone came on midway through the second half and within four minutes of his arrival on the left flank created the opening goal for debutant Matt Tubbs. Six minutes later, he wrapped up the points for the Cherries with a well-taken second.
Until Malone's arrival, Bournemouth had struggled to impose themselves against a resolute Exeter side, who had looked the better team for a goalless opening hour.
Indeed, Exeter almost scored their first goal in four games soon after the break, with Darryl Flahavan back pedalling to make a fine save from Richard Logan's glancing header.
But when former Wolves man Malone emerged from the bench, the game changed.
Malone played a neat one-two with Wes Thomas and picked out the unmarked Tubbs, who celebrated his debut by scoring a 72nd-minute opener from six yards.
Malone started and finished Bournemouth's second goal six minutes later, breaking from an Exeter corner and surging through the middle before sweeping a pass wide to Tubbs on the right.
The record #850,000 signing picked out Malone at the far post to clinch the win for Bournemouth, who are now two points off the play-off places.
