Sean Maguire remains a doubt for this game, despite making major progress following a recent injury, as Alex Neil is unlikely to risk the Irish attacker by throwing him back into action too quickly.
They have several other notable absentees too, as Ryan Ledson, Liam Lindsay, Paul Gallagher, Patrick Bauer and goalkeeper Declan Rudd all remain out of contention.
Meanwhile, club captain Alan Browne is also a doubt after missing the Millwall defeat with a minor injury.
Welsh striker Ched Evans will come into this game with some confidence, having scored in both of his last two games.
Bournemouth will remain without David Brooks, who has been absent from the squad for their last four games.
However, they will be boosted by the return of Jack Wilshere, who served his suspension last time out for the red card shown against Watford.
Ben Pearson could feature against his former club on Saturday, after he moved from Preston to Bournemouth in the January transfer window.
He faces tough competition in midfield though, as Wilshere, Lewis Cook, Philip Billing and Jefferson Lerma will all be battling for starting spots.
