The defender faces a race against time to be fit after suffering damage to his calf and shin during Saturday's 2-1 win over Crewe.

Boss Eddie Howe is hopeful Bartley could feature, but if he fails to make it the Cherries, who are still under a transfer embargo, may seek special dispensation from the Football League to allow them to sign a player.

With games coming thick and fast, Howe may opt to rest Steve Fletcher, which could mean a starting role for Jeff Goulding.

But Warren Cummings misses out as he serves the second game of his three-match ban, while Scott Guyett faces four to six weeks on the sidelines with a knee problem.

Bournemouth may again be unable to name a full bench as Sammy Igoe (ankle), Joe Partington (back), Mark Molesley (foot) and Shaun Cooper (hip) remain unavailable.
