Eddie Howe has no fresh injury worries as his Bournemouth side look for their third successive victory.

Wins at Stevenage and then Oldham have moved the Cherries to within three points of second-placed Brentford and they are likely to include left-back Charlie Daniels in the starting line-up again.

The 26-year-old came through his return to action against the Latics unscathed having rested his foot injury for their previous 10 games.

Fellow defender Tommy Elphick also returned to the squad last time out after a spell on the sidelines with knee and shin damage he suffered against MK Dons in early February.

The former Brighton man was an unused substitute and, with another week's recovery under his belt, the club captain is looking to force his way back into the starting line-up.

One player who will not feature is Charlie Sheringham who has joined Dartford on a month's loan.

The 24-year-old had been sidelined for 14 months after fracturing a bone in his foot back in 2011 and will use the spell with his former club to regain his match fitness.

Efe Sodje is a doubt for Bury as they look to record their second win of the week.

The veteran defender went straight into manager Kevin Blackwell's starting XI to face Stevenage on Tuesday night on his return from a loan spell at Barrow.

Sodje was unable to complete the full 90 minutes, however, after sustaining a knee injury and is rated 50/50 to keep his place in Blackwell's side.

Carl Regan dropped to the bench to make way for the 40-year-old and is on standby to deputise in central defence.

The Shakers earned a crucial three points with a 2-0 win at Gigg Lane, in front of their lowest home attendance since 1984, and will be brimming with confidence as they travel to the south coast.

Jonson Clarke-Harris came off the bench to wrap up the points against Boro and will be pushing for a start but Tom Soares (hamstring), Phil Picken (knee), Adam Lockwood (groin) and Shane Byrne (blood infection) all miss out.
