Paul Thirlwell: Still out for Cumbrians
Team news ahead of Saturday's League One clash between Bournemouth and Carlisle United at Dean Court.
The hosts have no fresh injury worries as they look to edge closer to promotion to the second tier of English football for the first time since 1987.
The Cherries know six points from their final two games will seal their elevation to the Championship and if they rack up their club-record eighth consecutive victory and other results go their way on Saturday they could be promoted with a match to spare.
Victory for Eddie Howe's men coupled with Sheffield United's failure to pick up three points against Portsmouth and a win for Hartlepool over Brentford in the late kick-off would secure Bournemouth's promotion.
Only long-term injury absentees Miles Addison, Stephen Purches and Stephane Zubar are unavailable for Howe, who looks likely to name the same squad once more.
Shaun McDonald, Richard Hughes and Josh McQuoid all stepped off the bench in last weekend's 3-0 win at Shrewsbury and the trio are all pushing for starts should he freshen things up.
Carlisle striker Mathieu Manset is hoping to make his first start for the club this weekend.
Frenchman Manset has made five appearances off the substitutes' bench since arriving from Swiss side FC Sion last month, including a 27-minute run-out in last week's home draw with Preston.
Manager Greg Abbott must decide on the former Reading forward's match fitness, while Rory Loy, Mark Beck and Danny Cadamarteri are all in contention to partner Lee Miller in attack.
Abbott has no new injury or suspension problems but is still without midfield pair Paul Thirlwell (calf) and Dave Symington (knee), defender Frank Simek (thigh), plus winger Matty Robson (back).
Left-back Chris Chantler's season ended in January due to an ankle injury.
The Cumbrians, unbeaten in their last six matches, are chasing a third straight league win on the road.
