Brighton & Hove Albion v Bournemouth
Brighton have lost their last three to flirt with the relegation places but can take a step towards survival by beating Bournemouth.
The Cherries have struggled on the road in recent months, losing 10 of their last 11 away from home in the Premier League and while sitting pretty in 13th in the table, they will perhaps be glad to leave this season behind after failing to capitalise on a fast start.
They have only ever won once at the Amex – a 2-0 victory back in April 2015 – and Chris Hughton will be looking to exploit Bournemouth's fragility on the road on Saturday.
Hughton only has doubts over Solly March and Pascal Gross, both of whom face fitness tests, while Florin Andone and Jose Izquierdo could come into the team that lost to Manchester City in last weekend's FA Cup semi-final.
It is a different story for the visitors as Lewis Cook, Simon Francis and Andrew Surman are all long-term absentees and have been joined on the sidelines this week by Charlie Daniels and Diego Rico.
Howe has described losing the latter two as "big blows" and it means Adam Smith will continue at left-back.
Bournemouth won the reverse fixture 2-0 back in September but Brighton got revenge with a 3-1 FA Cup victory in January.
Only one of the Seagulls' last six at home in the Premier League has ended with both teams scoring and so it could be a cagey game in Falmer.
