Clark Welcomes Back Duo
Lee Clark welcomes back at least two fresh faces for the trip to Bournemouth, and is hoping for further good news in the coming days.
Charles Dunne returns from a three-game ban for the trip, while Gary Madine missed the Sheffield Wednesday game due his loan agreement.
“It's good news to have them both back,” said Clark. “Gary was outstanding at Birmingham in his last game and we've probably missed Charles.
“It was a blow when Charles got sent off because his personal performances were getting better and better as he got more confident.
“There's a chance Tony McMahon and Andrea Orlandi may be fit. We'll leave it until the last minute with them, they'll train before we depart."
However The Seasiders were dealt a blow with the news Jamie O'Hara is struggling with an ankle injury, and is a doubt.
“He has been playing the last few weeks with an ankle problem. We've been wheeling him out for games really.
“This week he's had a bit of a break through the week, and we're hoping he can come through for Saturday.”
Meanwhile full back Niall Maher will definitely miss the trip to Bournemouth, but his groin injury will be assessed in the coming days.
“Niall Maher has been to see a specialist. We're hoping for some news over the weekend that he'll be around in the next couple of weeks,” added Clark.
