Good luck today and safe journey to all that have traveled to Brighton. There is some strong wind out there let alone the rain.

Good afternoon from a wet and windy Amex Stadium... Eddie Howe has made two changes to the side that drew 1-1 with Ipswich. Ryan Fraser drops to the bench with Marc Pugh restored to the starting line-up, while Josh McQuoid drops out of the squad and Harry Arter returns to the midfield following his one-match ban.

Sorry, abc100, with all the talk of his being a free agent from today I wrongly assumed that his loan agreement would have ended yesterday. I apologise if I misunderstood the situation.
