Team news: Stacey & Carter-Vickers raring to go


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Jack Stacey and Cameron Carter-Vickers came through their weekend fitness returns and are now in the frame to take on Millwall on Tuesday.

Stacey had been missing since picking up a knee injury in the November win over Reading, but was included and played 67 minutes in Saturday's 4-1 Emirates FA Cup win over Oldham, coming through and with an assist and without a negative reaction.

Also involved against the Latics was centre-back Carter-Vickers, the loanee from Tottenham playing his first minutes for the Cherries after being sidelined by injury for much of his time since arriving in Dorset.

Jason Tindall spoke about the pair and their impressive starts to 2021 in his pre-match press conference at Vitality Stadium, with his side now set for the Championship visit of Millwall on Tuesday evening.

"I'm Really pleased with Jack," said the manager. "I thought he delivered an excellent performance for the duration of the time he was on the pitch and you could see his quality and how well he gets forwards for us from that position.

"He capped his performance off with a really nice assist, so I'm really pleased with how he played and speaking with him and seeing how he was out on the training pitch this morning, he's feeling good, he's happy being back out there with the boys and looking forward to now being involved.

"Cameron's had to be very patient initially when he came from Tottenham to us, he's put in a lot of work on the training ground and we've given him a better understanding of what's expected and how we play and do things.

"Unfortunately he then picked up his injury. I'm pleased he came through the 90 minutes, it was touch-and-go whether he'd be able to physically last that amount of time.

"It's testament to him, the medical team and all the hard work he's been able to put in to go and deliver a really solid performance like that. To get 90 minutes under his belt is really pleasing for him, me and the team and hopefully now he won't look back."

With Tindall rotating his squad for the Cup match at the weekend, key players were able to get some much-needed rest for the match, with the manager explaining that Dan Gosling, who was substituted at half time, stands as the only doubt ahead of the battle with the Lions.

"Thankfully we've pretty much got everyone fit," he said. "Dan Gosling's one that we'll just assess today and then see how he is tomorrow, but that shouldn't really be too much of a concern for us.

"Other than that, everyone came through the game with no problems."
