Can Gosling force his way into the team?

A few excellent Capital One performances have see Dan Gosling get a fair amount of acclaim, but he must want to see more of the action in the league and perhaps his time is coming. I can't guess all of Eddie Howe's thinking, but I'd hazard a little stab at one of the reasons to bring Dan to Dean Court was as cover for Harry Arter when he is either injured or accumulated a few to many yellow cards. While Harry is close to a suspension, he has been the player that Eddie Howe has shown tremendous loyalty to in the middle of the park, and it has been difficult for Dan to get the minutes he needs to really establish himself in the side up until now. 

I can see that changing though and the calls for Dan to play more of a part in the Cherries' are surely soon to be answered. The other players have done well to keep Dan from the front line for this long. It must be a decision though that Eddie Howe will be considering more as the team needs to keep finding quality passes to feed Callum Wilson up front, and Dan is one of those midfield players who is a good striker of the ball himself. The experience and skill that Gosling has should make him a strong candidate to start winning more game time now as he must be fit by this stage and is only lacking game time.
Dan may well find he is important for AFCB's push up the table now.
If Dan is not able to force his way into the team I have to start wondering whether it was a good decision to bring him to AFCB. If Dan has been carrying an injury then it has been kept quiet and that is not usually the case with the Cherries, so I can only assume that it is the competition that has been keeping Dan out of the first 11. But I would like to see more of the Brixham-born man, as he might just add another ingredient that helps takes this AFCB even further up the league.
Dan Gosling is the second highest goalscorer for AFCB behind Callum Wilson,
but is yet to score in the Championship.
Do you think Dan Gosling will be involved in either the Charlton or Reading games? Is he a player that you would like to see starting more often?
