Cup changes and addition of new signings: Bournemouth team planned for Boreham Wood Town


All change, please. Everything changes.

Seven new signings in the month of January, with the injury scenario constantly evolving.

While an FA Cup fourth round tie is rightly an important occasion for any team not in the top six with a realistic chance of progress, the tie against Boreham Wood Town presents Scott Parker with the opportunity to rotate and, what’s more, plan ahead.

Consequently, there are set to be massive changes to Bournemouth’s starting XI. Perhaps trying out new forms, systems and personnel.

That’s how dorsetlive think they will line up for today’s game.

Goalie – Freddie Woodman

Mark Travers is ready to continue… oh wait. It seems that this time we cannot just copy and paste the usual rhetoric. Although Parker confirmed that Travers is still his number 1, new acquisition Freddie Woodman is set to provide some intense competition in the coming weeks/months.

Parker expects Woodman’s debut to be impressive, and his performances are mostly dictated by good distribution, rather than making frequent stops.

Defense: Jack Stacey, James Hill, Nat Phillips, Leif Davis

It’s probably still a game too early for Ethan Laird, while Adam Smith recently returned to individual practice. However, this means that Jack Stacey is the only archetypal right back available to Parker. James Hill put in a solid debut display as a substitute against Barnsley, and Nat Phillips, who could well end up partnering Lloyd Kelly, is expected to make his first appearance.

Leif Davis, Bournemouth’s player of the month for January, should be given more playing time, with Jordan Zemura the league’s undisputed first choice.

Midfield: Gavin Kilkenny, Lewis Cook, Emiliano Marcondes

Having come close to joining Blackpool on transfer deadline day, Gavin Kilkenny needs regular game time and against Boreham Wood, he will be hoping to rack up minutes. Jefferson Lerma and Philip Billing will be wrapped in cotton and Emiliano Marcondes, after a hat-trick in the previous round, is likely to feature early on.

Lewis Cook has struggled to be fit and fully in tune since his long-term ACL injury, and tonight’s match represents a timely setting.

Ben Pearson is also in consideration to play after a strong return to the team at Oakwell.

Attack: Jaidon Anthony, Jamal Lowe, Todd Cantwell

Dominic Solanke needs to be protected at all costs. It would keep him so far off the field that even allowing him into Vitality Stadium would strike fear into him. Like Marcondes, the FA Cup is Jamal Lowe’s bread and butter during regular minutes and Jaidon Anthony, who is in his place ahead of Siriki Dembele, who is tied for the cup, may see his starts reduced in the next weeks. Therefore, this meeting can be an important moment to impress and stay in Parker’s plans.

Kieffer Moore is injured, but Todd Cantwell (there’s an article next week, but he hints that Parker prefers him in a different position) has trained with his new teammates since joining Monday and, as one of the few options, Morgan Rogers is out of the team. equation – will probably add the incision on the front three.
