Judge return boosts CurleNotts County manager Keith Curle could welcome Alan Judge back to the fold for Bournemouth's visit to Meadow Lane.The Irish midfielder missed County's 2-1 victory over Coventry on Saturday but is expected to return to Curle's matchday squad against the Cherries.The Magpies have a long injury list consisting of Joss Labadie, Fabian Spiess (both knee), Julian Kelly (hamstring) and Tom Williams (calf).The match looks to have come too soon for veteran defender Carl Regan, who remains out with an ankle complaint.Meanwhile, Manny Smith, who is yet to make his league debut for Curle's side since arriving from Walsall in the summer, is unlikely to make the starting XI as he is still nursing a knee problem.Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe will be without left-back Charlie Daniels as he looks to build on the positive feeling around the club in the aftermath of his return to the south coast and the 3-1 victory over leaders Tranmere.The 26-year-old picked up his fifth yellow card of the season on Saturday and will serve a one-match suspension.Attacker Lewis Grabban was substituted on Saturday with an ankle injury and is a doubt while a number of players remain on the sidelines.Midfielders Richard Hughes (hamstring) and Mark Molesley (Achilles) will not travel while Charlie Sheringham (foot), Daryl Flahavan (shoulder) and Stephen Purches (broken leg) are all long-term absentees.One positive on the injury front is the return to action of Harry Arter who came through 80 minutes unscathed, and scored the second goal, after passing a fitness test on a rib injury.
