First team

Three changes in starting XI

AFC Bournemouth head coach Scott Parker has made three changes to his starting XI for today’s Sky Bet Championship finale.

Coming into the side are midfielders Emiliano Marcondes and Gavin Kilkenny and versatile winger Robbie Brady.

The trio of changes come into the starting team replacing Philip Billing, Ryan Christie and the injured Jefferson Lerma.

Parker’s changes come following promotion to the Premier League being sealed in the 1-0 victory over Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night.

In an electric evening at Vitality Stadium, a late Billing free kick teed up Kieffer Moore to strike the Cherries into the top flight.

Both players with a pivotal role in the goal occupy the bench, with assistor Billing made a substitute while scorer Moore again starts on the bench.

The only change amongst Parker’s substitute options sees 20-year-old centre-back James Hill replace Ben Pearson in the matchday squad.

Cherries XI: Travers; Smith, Phillips, Kelly, Zemura; Cook, Marcondes, Kilkenny; Brady, Solanke, Anthony.

Subs: Woodman, Mepham, Hill, Billing, Christie, Dembele, Moore.
