Crawley will check on Kyle McFadzean.

The defender was absent from the side which won 2-0 at Carlisle on Saturday due to a hip injury.

Former Swansea youngster Joe Walsh made his full league debut in central defence and will keep his place if McFadzean is ruled out again.

Tottenham loanee Nathan Byrne marked his league debut for Town with a goal so he should also continue in the starting line-up.

Winger Sergio Torres is fit again after a leg injury but was left on the bench at Brunton Park.

Midfielder Shaun Cooper will miss the visit of his former club due to the groin injury he suffered against Colchester three weeks ago.

Under-fire Bournemouth boss Paul Groves remains without a number of senior players.

Chairman Eddie Mitchell confronted angry fans following Saturday's home defeat to Walsall as calls for Groves to be dismissed increased.

The Cherries have won just one of their nine npower League One matches this season but have been plagued by injury in the process.

Defender Simon Francis (knee) is sidelined while Charlie Sheringham (foot), Stephen Purches (broken leg) and Richard Hughes (foot) also remain on the treatment table.

Groves was boosted by the return of attacking duo Lorenzo Davids and Frank Demouge last weekend following injuries, and the pair are set to retain their places having come through the match unscathed.

Former England keeper David James, who signed for the club on Friday, is also set to continue in goal after making his debut against the Saddlers.
