Elphick leads out rejigged Bournemouth side

The Argus: Tommy Elphick Tommy Elphick

Tommy Elphick will lead Bournemouth at The Amex this afternoon.

But there will be two changes in the Cherries’ line-up as they face Albion.

Harry Arter returns in midfield in place of Josh McQuoid after serving a one-game ban when Ipswich drew 1-1 at the Goldsands Stadium on Sunday.

The other switch comes down the left wing as Marc Pugh is preferred to Ryan Fraser.

Former Seagulls defender Steve Cook is again ruled out by a hamstring injury.

Bournemouth are looking to complete a hat-trick of away wins in the second tier for the first time in their history following 2-1 successes at Reading and Sheffield Wednesday in the run-up to Christmas.

Lewis Grabban leads the Cherries’ attack in a 4-1-4-1 formation which will see Pugh, Matt Ritchie and Andrew Surman get forward quickly in support.

Bournemouth: Camp; Francis, Ward, Elphick, Daniels; O’Kane; Ritchie, Arter, Surman, Pugh; Grabban. Subs: Allsop, Addison, Harte, MacDonald, Fraser, Pitman, Rantie.

Welcome back Tommy, but no hat trick of away wins I'm afraid.
