Bournemouth v Leyton O preview

Ryan Dickson will be in the Leyton Orient squad.
Dickson last week joined the O’s from Southampton on loan for the rest of the season and is set to make his debut at left-back after Saturday’s clash with Huddersfield was postponed.
Striker David Mooney is struggling with a thigh injury and will be handed a late fitness check along with on-loan Cardiff midfielder Solomon Taiwo, who should shake off a groin problem.
Last season’s first-choice keeper Jamie Jones is finally fit after a summer shoulder operation and played for the reserves last week, but Lee Butcher is expected to get the nod in goal again.
Marc Laird continues in midfield after skipper Stephen Dawson joined Barnsley on deadline day.
Bournemouth are sweating over the fitness of midfielder Wes Fogden.
Fogden suffered an ankle injury during the 1-0 defeat at Chesterfield on January 27 and is unlikely to be fit enough to line up against Orient.
Winger Donal McDermott will be hoping for a recall to the side after dropping to the bench for the goalless draw at Hartlepool on Saturday, while Cherries manager Lee Bradbury has a host of players missing due to ongoing injuries.
Bradbury will be without captain Adam Barrett, who has been ruled out with a hamstring problem, while Mathieu Baudry (hamstring), Joe Partington, Shaun Cooper, Mark Molesley and Nathan Byrne (ankle) are still short of match fitness.
Striker Charlie Sheringham will miss the rest of the season with a foot injury, while goalkeeper Shwan Jalal has been sidelined for at least five weeks after undergoing a routine back operation.
