Preview: Yeovil Town vs. Bournemouth

Sports Mole previews the Championship clash between bottom-of-the-table Yeovil Town and Eddie Howe's playoff-chasing Bournemouth at Huish Park.

There is everything to play for at Huish Park on Saturday as bottom-of-the-table Yeovil Town host playoff-chasing Bournemouth in Championship action.

Time is running out for Gary Johnson's side if they are to secure a second successive season at this level, with six points now separating them from safety following defeat to relegation rivals Charlton Athletic in midweek.

The Glovers have won only one of their last eight league matches, with recent good results for the Addicks and Millwall leaving them further adrift at the foot of the division.

Bournemouth came up with Yeovil from League One last season, and may have been fearing an immediate return themselves before Christmas, only for a superb run to take them towards the playoffs.

Eddie Howe has dared his team to dream this week after a fifth straight victory, and eighth win in 10, saw the Cherries charge to within two points of sixth place and a shot at back-to-back promotions.

The South Coast club's strikers are in prolific form at present, with Lewis Grabban and Yann Kermorgant scoring eight goals between them to help Bournemouth find the net 13 times in four games.

Harry Arter remains suspended for this weekend and therefore Howe could name the same side that beat playoff rivals Reading 3-1 in midweek, although Elliott Ward is pushing for a recall.

His fellow defender Charlie Daniels is still absent, despite being flown to Rome to receive treatment on his long-standing foot problem, so in-form veteran Ian Harte will keep his place at left-back.

Yeovil could restore goalkeeper Marek Stech at the expense of Chris Dunn, and may give young striker Kieffer Moore a starting berth after he netted off the bench in their damaging loss at The Valley.

Top goalscorer Ishmael Miller is not available after Johnson terminated his loan spell from Nottingham Forest last week, as the Glovers attempt to end a 10-match winless run against their opponents.
