Goalkeeper Shwan Jalal overcame a calf injury in time to make the Boxing Day 1-0 win over Cheltenham at Whaddon Road and he should be okay to continue.

Mark Molesley is out with a foot injury and could miss the rest of the season, but fellow long-term absentee Scott Guyett (knee) could return to the squad for the first time in three months.

Manager Eddie Howe was only able to name five substitutes against Cheltenham on Saturday and he will again be short on numbers.

However, the small squad has not affected performances and the Cherries will aim to bring a fantastic 2009 to a close with another victory.

Speaking after the win over Cheltenham, Howe said: "We've bounced back, as we have throughout the season.

"Morecambe (5-0 defeat) was a disappointment, a freak result, and the lads' character and attitude has has pulled them through.

"We didn't play well in the first half and parts of the second half but we defended well and fought for our lives with bodies on the line and the keeper made some good saves."
