Paul Dickov wants a positive reaction from his players tomorrow - and has warned his men not to underestimate Bournemouth.

Both teams have had better weeks, after being knocked out of the Capital One Cup by Leeds and Watford respectively.

And while Rovers were rained off at Charlton last weekend, Bournemouth were on the end of a 5-1 hammering at Huddersfield.

The Cherries were also hit for six at Watford earlier this month. Dickov, though, is guarding against complacency. “They’ve had two wins from four games so far, so take away the two away defeats they’ve had and it’s a reasonable start,” he said.

“They want to play the right w ay and they’ve got some good players.

“I know their results have been a little inconsistent but the one thing we’ll have to be is at our best.

“If we’re not, they’ve got players in their team who can really hurt us.

“We want to get the other night [against Leeds] out of our systems,” he added.

“You have to bounce back and react to a defeat and there’s no better place to do it than at home.”

James Coppinger missed training yesterday and is a major doubt.

Mark Duffy is on standby to return to the starting line-up for the home game.

Paul Keegan is also available again after missing the Leeds defeat due to the red card he got at the Valley.
