Football - Surman should be fit

Bournemouth are confident that Andrew Surman will be fit to feature against Birmingham.

PA Sport Report

The Norwich loanee, who has started all but one of their last 14 games, picked up a knock in the emphatic win over Leeds on Tuesday night and was replaced by Eunan O'Kane in the 54th minute to avoid any further damage.

The Cherries will also hand fitness tests to Ryan Fraser (ankle) & Mo Coulibaly (glute) before they make the trip looking to close the gap on the play-offs.

Eddie Howe, who signed a new contract with the club on Tuesday, will be tempted to name the same XI that thrashed United 4-1 with Yann Kermorgant and Lewis Grabban set to start upfront once more having both netted twice.
