AFCB move on from their defeat at the Valley to another side fighting to avoid relegation, bottom of the table Barnsley this Saturday.
Barnsley lost their last home match 0-3 to leaders Leicester, but did beat Nottingham Forest in their previous home game 1-0.
In their last 4 home games Barnsley have W2 D1 L1, Goals F4 A5.
Barnsley have this season at home W5 D7 L6 , Goals F20 A30, picking up 22 points out of their 29 points so far this season.
Head to head at Barnsley over the seasons has been Barnsley won 10, AFCB 3 & 6 drawn. Barnsley scored 30, AFCB 17.
Barnsley have scored in 13 of 18 home games this season.
Highest home win 3-2 against Middlesbrough. Heaviest home defeat 1-5 against Watford back in September.
Be a good time for the Cherries to pick up another 3 points, but away from home 1 point will be good.
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."
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.
6ft 2in striker joined Barnsley initially on loan from Sheffield Wednesday in January 2013.
He went on to sign permanently in the summer and this season has scored 11 goals in 29 appearances.
AFC Bournemouth winger Matt Ritchie hopefully could be back in the squad after illness forced him to miss Charlton game.
Both Yann Kermorgant and Elliott Ward returned to the squad against Charlton.
However Charlie Daniels remains sidelined.
Pity he picked up an injury after a superb show on how to finish against Doncaster Rovers.
But he returned to play the final half an hour against Charlton.
Head to Head
Bournemouth wins - 12
Barnsley wins - 16
Draws - 13
