AFC Bournemouth winger Matt Ritchie will not be phased by the possibility of having to fill in at left back again if required.
Ritchie has made a name for himself as one of the most dangerous right wingers in League One during his time with Swindon Town.
The Cherries have been long term admirers of Ritchie and ahead of the January transfer window closing took advantage of Swindon's financial issues and brought him to Dean Court in a £500,000 move.
But with left back Charlie Daniels injured and loanee Dan Seaborne having to move from left back to centre back following Tommy Elphick's injury on Saturday, Ritchie made his debut as an emergency left back.
If Daniels fails a fitness test ahead of the game it is likely that Ritchie will be called upon once more to fill in.
Ritchie told the Daily Echo...
"I prefer to play on the wing but the manager brought me in knowing I could play left-back in an emergency as well.
"He needed me to step in after Tommy Elphick had come off against MK Dons and it wasn`t a problem for me. I will play anywhere as long as I am on the pitch.
"When I came here with Swindon last month, I remember the full-backs got forward as much as the wide men. The conditions weren`t the best and they made it tough for us, especially in the first half. If I am asked to play there again, I would try to do the same."
