The Cherries return to Dean Court this weekend after consecutive away wins have moved them away from the League one relegation places.
Last weekend`s victory, over struggling Exeter, saw Bournemouth move up to 17th as they look ahead to this weekend`s clash against an in form Hartlepool side.
With injuries to numerous first team players Lee Bradbury has drafted in Ipswich winger Jaime Peters on a month`s loan and ex-Plymouth defender Stephane Zubar until the end of the season.
Our visitors make the arduous trip south currently lying in 5th place having comfortably swept aside Bury last weekend.
The Cherries will be without Mark Molesley, Shaun McDonald and Nathan Byrne for this weekend`s clash and the influential Adam Barratt and Harry Arter will be monitored closely before a decision is made on their fitness ahead of Saturday`s game.
After netting in both of the sides away wins over the last 10 days Thomas will be looking to net his first goal in front of the home faithful. His touch, work rate and pace have earned him rave reviews off fans and will be looking to kick on, on home turf.
Keeper Scott Flinders will be in between the sticks for Mick Wadsworth`s men this weekend, Flinders shot to fame after netting a stoppage time equaliser in our last fixture against them in April. Nolberto Solano of Newcastle fame will also start for the visitors.
The vastly experienced winger will be the away side`s main threat this weekend. He has been in superb form for Pools this season and has instantly become a fans favourite amongst their supporters.
AFC Bournemouth have lost their last three consecutive games at Dean Court but return home after back to back away wins over Leyton Orient and Exeter.
Hartlepool are undefeated so far this season and have won their last four games in succession.
Match prediction: AFCB 2-1 Hartlepool Our visitors head south in good form, but following morale boosting away wins in their last two fixtures Cherries will be looking to kick on at home and three points will be a huge.
