AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

The AFC Bournemouth squad have been in the gym and out on the grass preparing for the weekend's game against Blackburn Rovers. 

The Cherries travel to Ewood Park for a 3pm kick-off on Saturday afternoon, looking to strengthen their grip on second place in the Sky Bet Championship. 

Members of the squad were in the gym following Tuesday's game at Swansea City, while others were out on the grass being put through their paces by Scott Parker and his coaching staff. 

There were welcome returns to the training ground for Jordan Zemura and Todd Cantwell, both of whom have been sidelined with injury, while youngsters Nathan Moriah-Welsh and Cameron Plain were also involved.
