Have Millwall got the weapons to hurt the Cherries?

Millwall's strike force has not been prolific. The well-known Ricardo Fuller heads their chart along with Lee Gregory on three goals. What you can say about Millwall is that just about everyone in their team has grabbed a goal but they are struggling up front to find the net.

Ian Holloway will be aware of his side's shortcomings, but perhaps hasn't got the funds to deal with the problems. With 19 goals this season though they are far from being the worst goalscorers and they have only failed to score in one of their last five matches. That was against Charlton when they played out a 0-0 draw.

Coming into this match, Millwall's attacking players might not frighten AFCB's defence too much but they are well capable of nicking a goal. From midfield the Cherries will have to watch out for Martyn Woolford who scored the goal that separated the two sides in the last game of last season. Scott Malone will be the main target of entertainment for AFCB fans, but I always thought he played with strong ability when he was with the Cherries and his direct dribbling style is a weapon that Millwall will surely use to relieve pressure.

So while Millwall may not have massive striking power they are averaging just over one goal a game. The task will be to ensure that they are gifted with nothing and AFCB will surely be aiming to get back to obtaining a clean sheet here.
