AFC Bournemouth vs. Yeovil Town

Dean Court

26th December 2013


Cherries host Yeovil on Boxing Day

AFC Bournemouth once again host Yeovil Town on Boxing Day.

For the second consecutive year, Yeovil make the short trip down to the south coast on Boxing Day.

Last season the Cherries went on to win the fixture 3-0, however by the end of the season both sides were celebrating promotion from League One.

On the back of a second consecutive away victory, after taking all the points against both Reading and Sheffield Wednesday, AFC Bournemouth will be hoping to return to form in front of the Dean Court faithful.

The Cherries are without a win in four games at Dean Court, with three defeats and one draw.

Vital Quotes:

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told Sky Sports...

'...Our priority now is a long overdue home win. Of late, we've failed to turn our dominant performances into victories.'

AFC Bournemouth Team News:

AFC Bournemouth defender Steve Cook suffered a hamstring in training last week and missed the trip to Sheffield Wednesday.

He remains a major doubt ahead of the game.

Fortunately Elliott Ward returned from the sidelines in time to replace Cook against Sheffield Wednesday and he is likely to line up alongside Tommy Elphick.

Josh McQuoid and Mohamed Coulibaly continues to push towards a return to first team action.

Player to watch: Lewis Grabban

AFC Bournemouth's top goalscorer was on the scoresheet again against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

His 27th minute goal was his ninth of the season and he will be aiming to hit double figures against Yeovil.

Yeovil Town Team News:

Former AFC Bournemouth loan goalkeeper Marek Stech returned for Yeovil during their defeat to Blackburn on Saturday.

He had spent four months sidelined after he broke two bones in his hand at the start of the season, he came through the match fine and should continue in goal on Boxing Day.

Byron Webster looks doubtful after he suffered a hamstring injury against Blackburn after only 30 minutes.

Player to watch: James Hayter

Former AFC Bournemouth striker James Hayter will return to Dean Court with his Yeovil team-mates.

Hayter made 407 appearances for the Cherries scoring 107 goals during a decade spell on the south coast.
