Football - Howe to ring the changes

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe will rotate his squad for the FA Cup third-round tie with Burton.

The former Burnley boss has revealed that first-team regulars Matt Ritchie, Elliott Ward and Andrew Surman are likely to enjoy a weekend off against the Brewers.

Ritchie is feeling the effects of a heavy pitch against Brighton having barely missed a minute since returning from injury while Ward and Surman have not been training between matches.

Loanees Lee Camp and Nico Yennaris will not feature after leaving the club on Thursday following the conclusion of their loan spells but the likes of Ian Harte, Tukelo Rantie and Ryan Fraser are pushing to start.
