Cherries without record signing
Bournemouth will continue to be without Matt Tubbs for their npower League One trip to Sheffield United on Saturday.
The striker, who has missed the Cherries' last five matches, underwent an operation on his hamstring during the week and, while the procedure was successful, the club's record signing has been ruled out for the remainder of the campaign.
Caretaker manager Paul Groves will also be unable to call on Charlie Daniels, whose recovery from a broken bone in his foot is progressing well although the visit to Bramall Lane comes too soon for the defender to make his comeback.
Charlie Sheringham (foot) will remain sidelined for the rest of the term while Stephen Purches (double leg break) is targeting a return to fitness in January next year.
