AFC Bournemouth hoping for positive response against Barnsley
AFC Bournemouth are hoping to bounce back from Saturday's SkyBet Championship defeat against Blackpool when the Cherries host Barnsley tonight.
New signing Tokelo Rantie could make his debut for the Cherries - while midfielder Shaun MacDonald expects a positive response form his side.
"We have had a few setbacks but we are a positive group of lads and we know we have the ability in the squad to cause problems for any team" explained MacDonald.
"We don't want to dwell on it - we need to move on and make sure we are ready for Tuesday night. We have always bounced back in the past and I'm sure we will do the same against Barnsley.

"It's always good to have the opportunity to try and put things right and we have got the chance to do that in front of our own fans."
Eunan O'Kane could keep his place in Eddie Howe's side with Harry Arter remaining doubtful with a thigh injury.
Martin Crainie could start for the Tykes after recovering from a knee injury. Barnsley have lost all three away games in the league this season and currently sit in 22nd place in the Championship table.
The Cherries could go back into the top six with a win, depending on other results.
