As discussed on Thursday, Stanley will have had only 41 hours recovery time, between the cup tie at Tranmere and kick off today. They played quite well at Rovers, but expended a lot of energy and also picked up a couple of knocks. I expect two things today, one is a more open approach from them, they always "go for it" at home, as we have discussed at length in the past and they are 6-2-19 in their last 27 starts, secondly, that they will tire in the second half.

The visitors have rested since their morale boosting cup win over Bristol Rovers last weekend and a win today, will put them on zero points and keep the South Coast team in touch with Grimsby, the club they are chasing and whom they meet next week. They have added striker Michael Symes to the squad in the past couple of days, he has struggled to get a look in at Shrewsbury, but was quite highly rated by supporters in Shropshire and he will be hungry to impress today . Really big game for Bournemouth and it is hard to see Stanley having quite the same level of commitment.

6 points Bournemouth level ball 1.82 asian line.

Back later.
