Midfielder Harry Arter hopes to return from a hernia injury in Bournemouth's clash with Sheffield Wednesday next week.
The 20-year-old, who was signed from Woking in the summer, underwent a double hernia operation last month.
And, after training over the last couple of weeks, he has targeted a comeback against the Owls on October 23.
"I am targeting the Sheffield Wednesday game to be back," he told the Bournemouth Echo. "Hopefully, I will be fit enough to be involved.
"That is probably one of the biggest games for us, stadium-wise and club-wise, in this league, so it would be nice to be part of it."
