It might lack the antagonism of a Portsmouth/ Southampton game, but this ‘other’ south-coast derby should be a decent ding-dong (k-o 1.30pm).

Bournemouth have struggled this season, more a case of costly mistakes than
general poor play.

A lot relies on Norwegian striker Joshua King, who should be fit and firing today after auide, recent back problem.

However, Southampton need to kick-start the season, too.
