Shandon Baptiste (knee) is a long-term absentee but Josh Dasilva could return after being rested for the 3-2 victory at Cardiff on Saturday.
Chris Mepham (calf) and Arnaut Danjuma (hamstring) are back in contention.
Brentford approach the end of 2020 on a 15-match unbeaten sequence and look the likely winners of their key promotion battle with Bournemouth.
It took a while for the Bees to recover from their 2-1 loss to Fulham in last season's Championship playoff final. The season started less than six weeks after their Wembley defeat and there were signs of a hangover with Brentford winning just four of their first 12 league matches.
However high-profile summer signing Ivan Toney has been a huge hit, scoring 16 goals, and Brentford's wide forwards have come to the party in recent games with Bryan Mbeumo netting twice in the 3-1 success at home to Reading and Sergi Canos bagging a hat-trick in Saturday's 3-2 success at Cardiff.
Bournemouth can expect a tough game and might be rusty having not played since a 0-0 draw at Luton on December 19.
The Cherries have lost just one league match this season but another reverse may be on the cards in west London.
Brentford are unbeaten in 15 matches.
