AFC Bournemouth welcome visitors Ipswich Town to Dean Court for the second in the home double header over the Christmas period.
The Cherries secured back to back victories for the first time this season after a convincing win at Yeovil followed the away victory over Sheffield Wednesday.
Ipswich are one of the form sides in the Championship at the moment. Unbeaten in their last seven away games with their last defeat coming against Wigan in September.
They are currently seventh in the Championship table, six points clear of the Cherries.
AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told the Daily Echo...
"Mick has done a good job. Ipswich have improved as the season has gone on and are getting some good results. They are consistent in their results and a visit from another established Championship club will be a good marker for where we are in our current form.
AFC Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter misses out through suspension, he collected his fifth yellow card of the season against Yeovil.
Shaun MacDonald is likely to replace him, while Richard Hughes could step onto the bench.
Defender Steve Cook is expected to remain sidelined.
AFC Bournemouth winger Matt Ritchie bagged a brace against Yeovil Town, bumping his goal tally for the season to five in seven appearances.
Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy could name an unchanged side a for a fifth successive match, with no additional injury worries.
Former AFC Bournemouth loanee striker David McGoldrick has been in excellent form for Ipswich so far this season.
The former Southampton and Nottingham Forest striker has thus far scored 11 goals in 22 Championship appearances this season.
