Bournemouth host Swansea City at the Vitality Stadium in EFL Championship action on Tuesday night.

The hosts' playoff hopes are hanging by a thread now, and they know they cannot afford any more slip-ups in a bid to make the top six.

In their last match, Bournemouth missed a chance to go back into the top six. They lost 3-2 to Barnsley, who opened up a five-point gap between themselves and the Cherries.

In that game, Bournemouth conceded an early goal, but Arnaut Danjuma and Dominic Solanke scored to put them in the lead at halftime. However, Dominik Frieser and Carlton Morris scored in the second half to give Barnsley a huge three points.

Bournemouth now have 56 points from 36 games, five points behind both Reading and Barnsley.

Swansea have 69 points from 35 games at the moment, and are only behind Watford on goal difference. If the Swans win or even draw their game in hand, they will move to second place, and occupy the automatic promotion spot.

Swansea bounced back to winning ways after a draw against Blackburn Rovers as they beat Luton Town 1-0 at the weekend.

Conor Hourihane scored the only goal of the game in the third minute, with Steve Cooper's side holding on for the victory.
