BOSS Jonathan Woodgate insists there are still places up for grabs in his side to start next week's play-off semi-final against Brentford.

Speaking after defeat to Wycombe on May 1, Woodgate revealed “I know my team now" that will play in the upcoming play-off matches.

The head coach made seven changes from the team which lost at Adams Park for Saturday's visit of Stoke City, largely naming the XI which embarked on a seven-game winning run last month.

And, following Saturday's 2-0 loss to the Potters, Cherries' third defeat in a row, Woodgate has kept the door open before the first clash with the Bees on May 17.

Asked if he still has his team in mind for the play-offs, or if that has changed after the disappointing end to the regulation league campaign, Woodgate told the Daily Echo: "I have my team in mind, but there’s still areas which can change, if you know what I mean."

In a separate interview with afcbTV, the head coach was asked if the side which started against Stoke would be the XI to face Brentford, Woodgate said: "It's too early to say that.

"I've got decisions to make on the team. I'd say there's probably three places up for grabs.

"Three or four, I'd probably say three, up for grabs in the team."
