Bournemouth boss Lee Bradbury is hoping to have Michael Symes and Warren Cummings available.

Striker Symes has missed the last two games with abductor and groin injuries while defender Cummings has had an ankle problem.

Bradbury will give the pair as much time as possible to recover as he looks to get the Cherries' promotion hopes back on track following a three-game losing streak.

If the pair fail to make it, assistant manager Steven Fletcher and Stephen Purches could fill in up front and at left-back respectively.

Full-back Rhoys Wiggins, who has had a transfer request rejected, is expected to miss out again with a gluteal injury.

Back-up goalkeeper Jon Stewart is not expected to be involved again due to a club ban imposed for disciplinary reasons so Dan Thomas will be among the substitutes for a second successive game.

Charlton have added Michael Stewart to their squad for the trip.

The former Manchester United midfielder arrived at The Valley as a free agent this week after leaving Turkish club Genclerbirligi earlier this year.

Stewart will probably start on the bench with boss Chris Powell set to stick with the side which drew 1-1 with Southampton on Tuesday to end a run of three straight defeats.

Teenage full-back Carl Jenkinson was left out in midweek due to contract talks, and having since turned down a new deal he is unlikely to figure.

Striker Paul Benson serves the final game of a four-match ban and defender Kelly Youga (knee) and winger Johnnie Jackson (Achilles) remain in the treatment room.
