Jamie McAllister is suspended for Yeovil's return to League One action against the Cherries.

Left-back McAllister will begin a three-match ban after he was sent-off for violent conduct towards the end of Town's 3-0 victory at Bristol Rovers in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy in midweek.

With Curtis Haynes-Brown on loan at AFC Wimbledon, and currently injured, McAllister's boots will be filled by teenager Nathan Ralph, who came on as a substitute to slot into the full-back slot after the red card on Tuesday night.

Ahead of the 19-year-old's full Football League debut, manager Gary Johnson said: "Nathan is buzzing, I should think. Sometimes young players get their opportunity and sometimes you get to see the young players when something like this happens.

"I've got every faith in Nathan Ralph that he will be a first division defender and I have no doubt he will be a first division player. We will see how it goes but he's got to grow up quickly in the next two or three days."

Byron Webster looks set to miss out after a rib injury forced him off against Rovers. The centre-half was complaining of breathing problems and Johnson said his withdrawal was "more than a precautionary measure".

Bournemouth are without midfielder Eunan O'Kane as they look for their first win of the season.

O'Kane is away on international duty with the Republic of Ireland Under-21s for their European Championship qualifiers against Hungary and Italy.

Cherries boss Paul Groves is also without Charlie Daniels due to a hamstring injury, while Charlie Sheringham (foot), Frank Demouge (knee) and Stephen Purches (broken leg) remain sidelined.

Groves is likely to recall players left out of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat to Portsmouth on penalties in midweek, with Joe Partington, Marc Pugh and Lee Barnard looking to be handed starts.

Midfielder Wes Fogden made his first start of the season in midweek after suffering a shoulder injury at the end of last season and came through unscathed.

The Problem With FA Cup Shocks...

...is that the draw for the next round is pretty shocking. Blackburn v Stoke, anybody? We also have mails on LVG and ManUnited, who drew plenty under Fergie...

You're Man Utd, For Crying Out Loud!

Defending a 0-0 draw with Cambridge on the grounds that other teams lost to lower-league opposition is not befitting of Man United. We're inclined to agree with Mailboxers...
