CAMERON Carter-Vickers could make his Cherries debut at Birmingham City tomorrow.

The centre-back is yet to feature for his new club since joining on loan from Tottenham Hotspur last month.

But with Steve Cook suspended following his red card in Tuesday night's defeat at Sheffield Wednesday, the door could be open for the USA international to make his first appearance, although Cherries do also have Jack Simpson, Nnamdi Ofoborh and Diego Rico as viable alternatives alongside regular centre-back duo Chris Mepham and Lloyd Kelly.

"It’s a shame that Steve Cook is going to be out," said Cherries boss Jason Tindall.

"Obviously he’s the leader of the team and has performed very well this season, so that will be a bit of a blow for us.

"But we’ve got a good squad and we’ve got a good group of players to choose from.

"Cameron comes into that category where we’ve been pleased with the work he’s done so far and I feel he’s ready if selected and called upon."

Aside from Cook's absence, Tindall looks set to boast a fully fit squad for the trip to St Andrew's, including Jefferson Lerma after he made his return from a hamstring injury in midweek.

"Thankfully Jeff came through the game okay," confirmed Tindall.

"He missed a little bit of time through a hamstring problem, but you’re always worried when players are returning from that kind of injury.

"Thankfully for us he’s come through with no problems."

Asked if there were any fresh injury concerns, Tindall added: "Not really. Just impact injuries that a couple of the guys picked up that were assessed yesterday and will be assessed again this morning.

"Hopefully it’s nothing that’s too serious that will keep them out of tomorrow’s game.

"That will be something that after today we will know a little bit more about."
