Uwe Rosler could revert to a more attacking approach for Tuesday's League One encounter.

The Bees boss brought in defensive midfielder Rob Kiernan for Harry Forrester as his side drew 0-0 at Shrewsbury at the weekend to extend their unbeaten league run to 11 games.

But Forrester - who has scored eight goals this season - is expected to return as Rosler's men welcome a Bournemouth side who are on a five-match winning run in all competitions.

Rosler has Tom Adeyemi available once again after he missed Saturday's game through suspension following his dismissal against Colchester.

Goalkeeper Simon Moore could be back in the squad after missing the club's last three games due to a knock but midfielder Kevin O'Connor (ankle), striker Farid El Alagui (knee) remain sidelined.

Bournemouth have no fresh injury worries as they look to extend their unbeaten run to 16 games.

Having not tasted defeat since Eddie Howe returned from Burnley back in October the Cherries have moved into the play-off spots and within four points of their New Year's Day opponents.

Assistant manager Jason Tindall told their official website: "That will be an incredibly difficult game, but we have to go there with confidence, be well prepared and we will work as hard again to keep the run going."

Experienced midfielder Richard Hughes has now made two appearances as a substitute since recovering from a hamstring problem and he could get the nod should Howe decide to freshen things up.

Long-term absentees Shaun MacDonald, Darryl Flahavan and Stephen Purches remain sidelined while Charlie Sheringham, who has been out for a year, as been receiving treatment at the FA's headquarters at St George's Park.

Miles Addison should return to training within the next two to three weeks.
