Football - Allsop set for recall

Bournemouth are set to hand goalkeeper Ryan Allsop a start as they head to Leicester.

PA Sport Report

His recall comes after West Ham loanee Stephen Henderson was forced off just 13 minutes into the 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest after dislocating his shoulder.

That injury is set to sideline him for six months and the shotstopper has returned to Upton Park for treatment, meaning Allsop is on course to return to the starting line-up in his absence.

Striker Brett Pitman staked his claim for a start with two goals in a midweek friendly with Reading while the likes of Eunan O'Kane, Shaun MacDonald, Wes Thomas and Miles Addison also got valuable game time and staked their claims to start.
