Is it goals from Wilson and Grabban to sink the Villa?

I'm hoping Callum is ready to start at Villa Park
but if so who does he play with?
We want to see plenty of shots raining down on Brad Guzan in the Aston Villa goal. It may be that the strike force that we saw for the last game against Man City is totally replaced for this match if we see the return of Callum Wilson.

There is also the question of who is best to partner Callum Wilson be it in this game or any other future match for the Cherries? My preference is for Josh King, even though he has found it tough going of late and has spent quite a lot of time needing treatment himself. I just see a good balance between the two and of the forwards they have probably played together more often than Wilson has with any of the other strikers at the club. Whether Josh is also fit to play might be another late call and I suspect that he just may be rested if Callum is back.

It may be an easy decision for Eddie Howe to make to bring Callum back now with the side needing another win just to make sure it is safe and playing an Aston Villa side where you would think that the Cherries will get chances to win the game. If Benik Afobe is also ready in time to play a part I am sure he would be in the squad as well, but recent reports suggest he could be out for some four weeks.
Can Grabban get his first goal since coming back to
AFCB and make himself popular with the fans?
The player that we all want to see get off the mark though is Lewis Grabban and until he does get a goal he does look like a player that is not quite able to give of his best in games. That boost of a goal would mean a lot to him and I think the team would be keen to celebrate with him. 

I believe Glenn Murray falls right at the bottom of the pack though in the current line up of AFCB forwards and yet he makes the perfect kind of striker to get you a goal when a team is up against it and needs to get crosses into the box. If he scored at Villa Park and kept the Cherries up for certain then I imagine he would have a few more fans who start coming around to him.  
Is it the perfect time to give Glenn another go?
A goal for Callum would equally be highly celebrated and it is kind of already unwritten that he will come back and more than likely still end up being the club's top scorer for the season. Holding back Callum will be getting harder now if he is eager to play so it will be a great occasion is the team can go to Villa Park to get that all important win and see see a couple of their strikers hit form on the day.

Possible AFCB team to play Villa
Boruc, Francis, Elphick, Cook, Daniels, Ritchie, Gosling, Surman, Gradel, Grabban, Wilson

Federici, Distin, Wiggins, O'Kane, Iturbe, Pugh, Murray
