Bournemouth have been boosted by the news that Harry Arter came through a reserves fixture against Swindon unscathed.
Arter only arrived at Dean Court in the summer, but the Republic of Ireland Under-19 International managed just five appearances before requiring a double hernia operation.
The former Charlton midfielder signed for the Cherries from Woking and will now be looking to get back in the first-team picture after scoring in the 2-0 win over the Robins.
Arter told the Echo: "It was good to score. In that position just behind the striker scoring is important and I know the manager is going to want that player to try to chip in with his share of goals."
