Eddie Howe's in-form Bournemouth came through their fifth successive win unscathed and have no injury worries.

The Cherries put Oldham to the sword on Saturday, running out 4-1 winners without picking up any knocks, with Simon Francis coming through 90 minutes despite being a big pre-match doubt.

One decision Howe has ahead of the visit of Gary Smith's men to the south coast is his penalty taker of choice. Harry Arter's spot-kick was saved by Oldham keeper Dean Bouzanis on Saturday with Lewis Grabban completing his hat-trick from the rebound, leaving the Cherries boss with a decision to make.

"Lewis wanted to take it which was understandable because he was on a hat-trick," Howe said. "But I am pleased Arter took it because he had scored our last one.

"You have to think of the team in a situation like that and I am glad their argument was civilised. I will have to think about who takes the next one."

Filipe Morais is suspended for Stevenage.

The Portuguese midfielder collected his fifth booking of the season in Saturday's disappointing 4-1 defeat to Sheffield United and is now unavailable.

Summer signing Lee Hills is set to continue in defence after shrugging off a thigh problem to make his long-awaited debut at Bramall Lane, while former Leeds winger Robbie Rogers and striker Don Cowan have recovered from their respective hamstring injuries and could earn recalls.

Despite requesting a loan move away from the club last month, six-goal midfielder Robin Shroot was back in the squad against the Blades and, although he was an unused substitute, he could be given a starting role.

Defender Jon Ashton is likely to be on the sidelines until Christmas with an Achilles injury.
