AFC Bournemouth are looking to win their fourth game in five in the Championship, when they face relegation threatened Coventry City at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday afternoon. 

The Cherries are just one point behind the play-off places and they have a game in hand over the teams around them. The Sky Blues can extend their gap between themselves and the bottom three to 10 points with a win. 

Most recently, Bournemouth travelled to Blackburn Rovers where Jonathon Woodgate's side took all three points on Monday night.

Ben Pearsons' turn set up Arnaut Danjuma who bagged his 11th goal of his Championship campaign, with a calm finish under Thomas Kaminski, to seal the visitors a 2-0 win. 

On Monday night, Coventry City beat Bristol City 3-1 at St Andrews to claim three vital points in the bid for safety.  

Viktor Gyokeres sealed the win in the 87th minute after a poor mistake from the Robins' defence allowed the Sky Blues to capitalise. 

Team news

AFC Bournemouth 

With an ACL injury, Steve Cook has been ruled out for the rest of the season. 

Coventry City

Coventry will be without Jodi Jones once again as he carries an ACL injury.  

Ben Sheaf and Fankaty Dabo are both out for the rest of the month with a hip injury and a hamstring injury, respectively. 

Carrying a groin injury, Michael Rose is a doubt for the weekend. 

Predicted lineups

AFC Bournemouth:

Begovic; Smith, Carter-Vickers, Cook, Kelly; Billing, Lerma, Pearson; Danjuma, Solanke, Brooks. 

Coventry City:

Marosi; Pask, Ostigard, McFadzean; McCallum, James, Kelly, O'Hare; Eccles; Walker, Gooden.

Ones to watch

AFC Bournemouth - Dominic Solanke

The attacker is the Cherries' top goalscorer in the Championship. At 23 years of age, Solanke has 12 goals to his name along with six assists. He has been one of Bournemouth's biggest attacking threats this season. 

Coventry - Callum O'Hare

The 22-year-old is one of the more creative players in the City side with six assists, the most in the team, alongside two goals. 

Usually staring in the central role, his skilfulness and agility will cause the Cherries defence a lot of trouble on Saturday.
