Preview: Bournemouth v Millwall

4 October 2013

A look at team news from both camps

Scott McDonald is rated highly doubtful for Saturday's trip to the Goldsands Stadium to face Eddie Howe's Bournemouth (3pm).

The striker has been suffering with a knee problem in recent weeks, and has missed Millwall's last two games against Leeds United and Birmingham City.

Alan Dunne and Martyn Waghorn picked up slight knocks at St Andrew's, but are both expected to travel to the south coast.

For Bournemouth, Howe could hand a debut to goalkeeper Stephen Henderson, who this week signed for the club from West Ham United on an emergency loan deal until January.

That move came about following former Lion Ryan Allsop's sending off against Leeds on Tuesday, a game which The Cherries lost 2-1, whilst back-up keeper Daryl Flahavan nurses a slight thigh injury.

Long-term absentees Matt Ritchie (thigh) and Charlie Daniels (heel) also look set to miss out for the hosts, who have won just once in their last five games, a 1-0 victory at home to Barnsley in mid September.
