Huddersfield’s 17-match unbeaten run in the Championship came to an end on Wednesday night as they lost 2-0 away at Millwall.
It was their first league defeat of 2022 and in truth they could have lost by more as the Lions hit the post and Lee Nicholls was forced into a couple of impressive saves.
Given that they have played three more games than Bournemouth, Carlos Corberan‘s side must surely win on Saturday to keep their hopes of automatic promotion alive.
The Terriers are still unbeaten in their last nine home matches since the end of November and they have won four of their last five games at the John Smith’s Stadium in all competitions.
It has been a tricky fortnight for Bournemouth, who have taken just one win from their last four games and have dropped points against struggling Peterborough United and Reading.
The Cherries drew 1-1 at home against the Royals on Tuesday night and were second-best for much of the encounter after taking the lead through Dominic Solanke.
Nonetheless, victory for Scott Parker‘s side in Yorkshire would be a huge step towards a return to the Premier League.
Bournemouth have suffered just four defeats on the road this season, but three of those have come in their last six away trips.
The Cherries – who have the Championship’s best defensive record – have won five successive matches against Huddersfield and were comfortable 3-0 victors in this season’s reverse fixture at the Vitality Stadium.
Carlos Corberan may switch to a back four after Huddersfield struggled in a back three against Millwall on Wednesday.
Matty Pearson was the centre-back to be sacrificed when Corberan made the formation tweak mid-game in midweek so could drop out, while there may be recalls for Ollie Turton and Daniel Sinani.
Carel Eiting missed the trip to The Den with a foot issue, but is likely to be back in contention for the matchday squad.
Bournemouth will be boosted by having Adam Smith and Philip Billing back available, with the pair having missed recent games through suspension.
Robbie Brady has trained throughout this week and is getting closer to being able to feature after over two months out with a calf injury.

Leif Davis sustained a hip injury against Derby County last weekend and although it is not as bad as first feared, Saturday’s match is likely to come too soon for the left-back.

Nicholls; Turton, Colwill, Lees, Toffolo; Hogg, Russell, O’Brien; Thomas, Ward, Sinani
Bournemouth possible starting lineup:
Travers; Smith, Phillips, Kelly, Zemura; Lerma, Cook, Billing; Christie, Solanke, Lowe
