Millwall: will they come to park the bus?

You have to wonder what exactly Ian Holloway will be thinking when he brings his team to Dean Court this weekend. They are not on the strongest of runs having won just one game in their last 10 and there has to be a bit of a tendency to consider parking the bus against a Bournemouth side that are the equal highest goalscorers in the division.
Scott Malone should be back at dean Court on Saturday.
The prospect of a mismatch though is usually a sign of trouble. AFCB cannot be over confident with Ian Holloway on the sidelines as he will change things tactically as soon as he sees a possible chink in AFCB's game. Keeping things tight and hoping for a set piece is probably Millwall's best chance of getting a result at Dean Court, but it is not easy to instruct your team not to break in numbers when the game is in full swing.

Ian will be hoping that the problems in the striker department for AFCB plays into their hands, but AFCB are a team that has improved since last season and there are far more players getting on AFCB's goal sheet apart from the front two these days. With the latest home form as well AFCB have only dropped two points from a possible 15.

I can't see this being a 0-0 draw as Millwall will have to try and come forward at some point and trying to keep their shape while closing down the ball for 90 minutes against the Cherries is going to need a super fit team. AFCB are still going to need to find a way past a reliant David Forde in goal and defenders like Danny Shittu and Solly know how to nullify a game, as Charlton found last time out. Winning though is not something that Millwall have done in their last five games on the road.
