AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe believes the Cherries will be in for a battle against Millwall this (Saturday) afternoon.
The Cherries host Millwall at Dean Court before heading into the two week international break with the aim of ending a three match winless streak after a draw at Middlesbrough was followed by back to back defeats to Blackburn Rovers and Leeds United.
Millwall started the season without a win during their opening six games of the new Championship campaign, but recovered with three consecutive victories, lifting them from bottom of the table to 16th.
That run was broken midweek with a 4-0 away defeat to Birmingham City and Howe believes the Cherries will be in for a battle with both sides aiming to return to winning ways.
Howe told the Daily Echo...
"I have had many battles with Millwall down the years, both as player and manager, and they never change their beliefs. There is no denying this is a big game in our season.
"It will be difficult and I hope everybody comes out and really supports the team because we are certainly going to need them to be our extra man. We need to return to winning ways as quickly as possible. We have a two-week break after the game and want to go into that full of confidence...'
'...Like most Millwall teams, they are very hard-working, honest, aggressive and strong. Although they had a patchy start to the season, they have had some good results recently and, whether you play them home or away, you always know you need to battle to beat them. They will be very competitive and we will certainly have to be at our best physically because you have to match them in all departments."
