O'Kane will be on top form for Reading's visit (video)

The activities of the 67th minute in the game against QPR could have a dramatic effect on what is left of the Cherries season. A three match ban for Harry Arter will mean a change of personnel if AFCB do not contest the red card and social media comments have already indicated that the club won't challenge the decision - hang on it's official, no appeal. That would mean a possible call up for Eunan O'Kane who played the last 20 minutes against QPR and slotted straight into a defensive midfield role to keep the Hoops out.

Eunan will be sad for Harry Arter but surely keen to impress again in the remaining games that Bournemouth have. He has already attracted much praise from his manager and from onlookers about his great endeavours this season and against QPR you could see his silky dribbling runs in evidence while he is always a player who can spot a pass.

Arter's absence will also create a space on the bench perhaps for Shaun MacDonald or Richard Hughes as Eddie will need some more cover in that area. We have seen though that switching of personnel is not hurting the team too much at this stage as everyone wants to play in this side.

It will be a major game for Eunan and for all his team mates on Tuesday. They will know that their season ultimately rests on this game if they are hoping for a top six place.

And listening to the cheers as the players leave the pitch. Can you replicate this or do even better with your AFCB chants on Tuesday night? Tommy Elphick leads the singing.
