AFC Bournemouth vs. Sheffield Wednesday

Dean Court

18th April 2014

3pm

Cherries host Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday are the visitors to Dean Court on Friday having drawn at home 3-3 against Blackburn, with their last away game also ended 3-3 at Nottingham Forest.

Previous to that they have lost their last 4 away games and you have to go back to February when they beat Huddersfield for their last victory on the road.

Despite their recent poor form away from home, Sheffield Wednesday are safe from relegation on 50 points.

AFC Bournemouth Team News:

Eddie Howe says he may consider using the squad rotation over the Easter games.

At Yeovil, Ryan Fraser came in for Marc Pugh on the wing, whilst Adam Smith also made a second half appearance at left back replacing Ian Harte.

Whilst Lewis Grabban was also withdrawn after he passed a late fitness test after struggling with his groin, with Brett Pitman and Tokelo Rantie making appearances from the bench.

Harry Arter serves the last game of his suspension for his sending off against QPR.

Player to watch: Matt Ritchie

Sheffield Wednesday Team News:

Interesting selection problem for Stuart Gray for our game against Wednesday, Atdhe Nuhiu who came in for Leon Best as Best couldn't play against the club he is on loan from, Nuhiu who has been on the bench previously scored a couple of goals.

Player to watch: Michail Antonio
