Football - Cherries poised for double boost

Welsh midfield duo Shaun MacDonald and Jack Collison look set to return to contention for Bournemouth against Nottingham Forest.

PA Sport Report

The pair were both missing from Chris Coleman's squad with knee injuries but they were reintroduced to training this week and could feature at the City Ground.

Scotland Under-21 winger Ryan Fraser also pulled out of international duty and his hamstring issue will be assessed but defender Charlie Daniels is improving and top scorer Lewis Grabban (both heel) should be able to feature.

Goalkeeper Darryl Flahavan's quadriceps tear will keep him out for three or four weeks while long-term injury victims Joe Partington (leg) and Wes Fogden (hernia) are both close to returning to training.
