Football - Grabban could return for Cherries

Bournemouth could recall Lewis Grabban as they head to Reading looking to end their seven-match winless run.

PA Sport Report

The Cherries' top scorer returned from illness as a 61st-minute substitute and he is pushing for a start against the Royals along with fellow forward Tukelo Rantie.

Manager Eddie Howe made three changes in midweek as they went down 3-0 to QPR on Tuesday night and Shaun MacDonald, Andrew Surman and Marc Pugh will all hope they have done enough to keep their places in the side.

Ryan Allsop (glandular fever) and Mohamed Coulibaly (Achilles/calf) are close to returning to training but this match comes too soon for the pair.
