Having gone into the weekend on a four-match winning streak in the Championship, there was a perception that Bournemouth were on the right track to close down leaders Fulham.
However, their previous two successes had come through late comebacks, and the Cherries’ luck ran out on Saturday as Preston North End came from behind to win 2-1 at Deepdale.
Tensions boiled over during the closing stages as manager Parker and one of his players were sent off, with the capitulation leading to Bournemouth dropping behind Huddersfield Town.
On a positive note, they still possess four matches in hand on the Terriers, making them clear favourites to quickly move back into the top two, but Parker will want an immediate improvement from his squad.
While eight goals have been scored in their last five Championship fixtures, five efforts have been conceded over the same period, something which may hand encouragement to their next opponents.
With Adam Smith serving a suspension, right-back Ethan Laird will come into the Bournemouth starting lineup.
Ryan Christie could get the nod over Jaidon Anthony in the final third, but Jefferson Lerma continues to serve a suspension.
McCann is expected to make several changes to his Peterborough XI, including handing a recall to Oliver Norburn.
Kwame Poku‘s place in the team is seemingly at risk after he was withdrawn after just 25 minutes at Huddersfield, a move which was tactical rather than injury-related.

McCann may feel that it is worth being more adventurous in the final third with Jonson Clarke-Harris and Jack Marriott both in contention.
