Missing Players and team news:
Warnock and opposite number Jason Tindall have questioned the timing of this Good Friday fixture, which comes two days after the final set of March internationals take place. Bournemouth’s Chris Mepham and Shan Long represented Wales and Republic of Ireland respectively on Tuesday, the latter travelling to Hungary for that match. As for Middlesbrough, Paddy McNair and George Saville are part of the Northern Ireland squad set to take on Bulgaria in a crucial World Cup qualifier on Wednesday evening. That could give both managers a major selection problem, though Warnock and Tindall will of course be keen to get their best players on the field from the start. Bournemouth will definitely be without midfielder Lewis Cook for this match, while Junior Stanislas, David Brooks, Lloyd Kelly and Adam Smith are all doubtful. Danjuma should be fit to start, though, as he looks to score for the fourth league game running, having also assisted in each of the last two. Anfernee Dijksteel and Marcus Browne are both nursing injuries from Boro’s perspective.
