Their participation hangs in the balance, though, despite returning to training on Friday, with Garry the more likely to feature of the two.

If he does not make it in time, then Howe will be left with a selection headache for the League Two showdown at Spotland as replacement Shaun Cooper, who has only played twice in the past 11 months, limped off in the first half of Saturday's 1-0 win over Bradford.

Jeff Goulding is unavailable as he serves the final game of his three-match suspension, while Mark Molesley (foot) was recently ruled out for the rest of the season.

The Cherries will be desperate for points to consolidate third place as they continue their push for automatic promotion.
