Bournemouth will be without key players Callum Wilson and David Brooks for the clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend.
The Cherries are the latest challengers to attempt to end Wolves’ unbeaten run which stands at seven games in all competitions.
But they will be unable to call on two of their most dangerous attacking threats at the Vitality Stadium.
Wilson, the top scorer with 11 goals, has been out since January while attacking midfielder Brooks has missed the last two games – defeats on the road to Cardiff City and Liverpool.
Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe said: “There are no dramatic changes, Callum Wilson and David Brooks are still out with our long-term injuries.
“They are improving quickly but this game has come too quickly for them.
“It’s very difficult to know exactly when they will return. We haven’t seen them in training yet or on the grass. They are still some way away.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side were last defeated by Manchester City on January 14 and have won five and drawn two since, including the FA Cup ties against Shrewsbury and Bristol City.
Bournemouth have only won two in nine, but both of those victories came in their most recent home games against West Ham and Chelsea.
They put four past Maurizio Sarri’s side at the end of January in an emphatic performance, ten days after seeing off the Hammers.
Howe warned that his side have looked sharp in training and are determined to build momentum for the Premier League run-in, starting with Saturday’s match.
Howe continued: “Simon Francis and Lewis Cook are also still missing.
“We’ll make a late call on Junior Stanislas, who has a hip flexor injury. Charlies Daniels is available for selection.
“We’ve had a good couple of weeks and done some good training.
“As well as various other things to keep the players entertained. It was productive and we had a good time preparing.
