Having not tasted defeat since Eddie Howe returned from Burnley back in October the Cherries have moved into the play-off spots and within four points of their New Year's Day opponents.
Assistant manager Jason Tindall told their official website: "That will be an incredibly difficult game, but we have to go there with confidence, be well prepared and we will work as hard again to keep the run going."
Experienced midfielder Richard Hughes has now made two appearances as a substitute since recovering from a hamstring problem and he could get the nod should Howe decide to freshen things up.
Long-term absentees Shaun MacDonald, Darryl Flahavan and Stephen Purches remain sidelined while Charlie Sheringham, who has been out for a year, as been receiving treatment at the FA's headquarters at St George's Park.
Miles Addison should return to training within the next two to three weeks.
