Vital Quotes:

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told the Daily Echo...

"We have a tough run and these games away from home against teams at the bottom are very difficult and we don`t underestimate anybody. We knew how difficult (Charlton) was going to be and we know how difficult Saturday is going to be and we still have a lot to play for ourselves. We need points and so we need a reaction at Barnsley. There are a lot of games to go. We are in a decent position but still need more points."

Barnsley Team News:

Manager Danny Wilson confirmed the definite absentees for Saturday are Bobby Hassell and Martin Cranie, whilst Peter Ramage and Ryan McLaughlin have made positive progress from their respective injuries.

"We're as we were last week," said Wilson. "We might have one or two back in tomorrow.
