The Cherries, who have won their first two games of the season, face the Hornetsfor the first time in 10 years on Saturday and they could be without Coulibaly who has an Achilles injury and Ritchie who is recovering from a thigh problem.

While question marks hang over the availability of the two players Josh McQuoid will miss out as he will only return to training next week.

Manager Eddie Howe made seven changes to his line-up for the victory over south coast neighbours Portsmouth on Tuesday and a number of the rested players are set to return to the 11 at Vicarage Road.
