AFC Bournemouth will be seeking to bounce back from their recent defeat to Blackburn Rovers by achieving a positive result against Middlesbrough this weekend.
The Cherries were on the wrong end of a 2-0 defeat at the Vitality Stadium last Saturday as Rovers emerged as the unlikely victors on the South Coast.
As a result of this Scott Parker’s side currently sit second in the Sky Bet Championship standings behind Fulham, who have a two point lead over their automatic promotion rivals.
Bournemouth are now preparing to face a Middlesbrough side which have experienced an upturn in form following the departure of Neil Warnock and subsequent appointment of Chris Wilder as their new manager.

Mark Travers will one again be between the sticks for the Cherries as he seeks to keep a clean sheet for the first time in six games.
Robbie Brady should continue at left back as Jordan Zemura continues his recovery from injury, with Jack Stacey keeping his place on the right.
Lloyd Kelly should come in alongside Gary Cahill in place of the injured Steve Cook, with the duo being set to renew their successful partnership.
In midfield Ben Pearson will be the holding player that screens in front of the defence, whilst Lewis Cook and the returning Philip Billing will be tasked with providing support in the final third of the pitch.
