EDDIE Howe says he will "wait and see" whether to include Lloyd Kelly and Simon Francis for tomorrow's clash at Burton Albion (7.45pm).

The pair made their respective returns from injury in last Tuesday's Hampshire Senior Cup win over Basingstoke Town.

And both are pushing for their first-team comebacks in the Carabao Cup clash at Pirelli Stadium.

"They've had no setbacks as I sit here now," Howe told the Daily Echo.

"They've both done well in their recoveries, they've both looked impressive in training, so we'll wait and see."

Another who could be in contention is Dutch winger Arnaut Danjuma.

The 22-year-old arrived on a £13.7million deal from Club Brugge in the summer but is yet to make his competitive debut.

Asked if Danjuma is in contention to face the Brewers, Howe said: "He's getting close.

"With his injury, he's still one we've got to manage. We're not going to be able to just throw him in and expect him to play for long periods of time, so he's going to have to be a gentle introduction in terms of time spent on the pitch.

"We're very mindful of the fact we don't want to push him too hard or too far and then lose him, so we've got to try and get that process right."

Ryan Fraser began on the bench for Friday's win at Southampton with a knock while Lewis Cook was also left out of the starting lineup, but both were introduced in the second half.

Howe said: "I think Ryan came through the game OK. We were a little bit concerned that he wouldn't be able to manage longer than half an hour to 45 minutes. He came on, I think he was OK.

"I think when you consider it was his (Cook's) first game in a long, long time and he did so well against Everton, a game five days later, we didn't want to push him too far.

"He's in contention for this one."

He added: "We enter a three-game week and we know we're going to have to manage players, so there's a couple of concerns, but I don't think there's anything too major but we'll rotate the team for Burton.

"We'll give some players an opportunity to impress and I'm looking forward to seeing them in action."
