Bournemouth v Huddersfield preview

Cherries duo Danny Ings and Donal McDermott have declared themselves fit.
Striker Ings, who has scored five goals in his last seven matches, has returned to full training following an ankle injury.
Midfielder McDermott was withdrawn during the home defeat to Rochdale on the final day as a precaution after sustaining a knock.
Another midfielder, Michael Symes, has been out for almost two months with an abductor strain, but could be in contention for a place among manager Lee Bradbury’s substitutes.
Otherwise, Bradbury has no new injury or suspension problems and has an almost fully-fit squad to choose from.
The Cherries, who finished sixth in the table, one point clear of Leyton Orient and Exeter, have won only two of their last 12 league games.
Teenager Benik Afobe is expected to start for Town after being given the go-ahead by parent club Arsenal.
Arsenal confirmed this week that the 18-year-old striker, who has scored eight goals in 32 appearances for the Terriers this season, was eligible to play.
Fellow loanees, Bolton winger Danny Ward and Hull defender Kevin Kilbane, are both available and manager Lee Clark has no new injury or suspension problems ahead of the away leg.
Goalkeeper Alex Smithies (knee), winger Anthony Pilkington (leg/ankle), midfielder Damien Johnson (knee) and defender Liam Ridehalgh (foot) all remain sidelined with long-term injuries.
But striker James Spencer, who has scored eight goals in 34 appearances while on loan at Morecambe this season, has returned to the Galpharm Stadium and is in contention.
Town head into the play-offs unbeaten in 25 league games and will be looking to extend their club record.
