Stevenage are again without James Dunne.

Midfielder Dunne completes a two-match ban after collecting his 10th yellow card of the season against Brentford last week, so Anthony Grant is set to deputise again.

Boss Gary Smith named an otherwise unchanged line-up for Saturday's trip to Preston, but he could opt to shuffle things around again after they slumped to a 2-0 defeat.

Lucas Akins, Steve Beleck and Robin Shroot came on in the second half and will be pushing for recalls to the starting line-up, while teenage forward Anthony Jeffrey is still awaiting his debut following his recent loan switch from Arsenal.

Defender Jon Ashton remains Boro's only long-term absentee due to an Achilles injury.

Bournemouth will be boosted by the return of Harry Arter as they look to end a run of five successive defeats.

The 23-year-old midfielder has missed the last two losses after picking up his tenth yellow card of the season but is available again as Eddie Howe looks to revive his side's fortunes.

Winger Ryan Fraser and striker Matt Tubbs, who scored following his introduction on Saturday, are both pushing for starts should the former Burnley manager decide to freshen up his side.

Doncaster's 2-1 victory at the Goldsands Stadium on Saturday left the Cherries in seventh place in the league, three points off the play-off places.

Meanwhile, long-term injury victims Darryl Flahavan and Charlie Sheringham were involved in the Hampshire Senior Cup win over AFC Totton last week as they look to return to match fitness after long spells on the sidelines.
