Cook: I think Millwall are safe

AFC Bournemouth defender Steve Cook believes that Millwall will avoid relegation from the Championship no matter the result on Saturday.

The Cherries travel to the New Den for the early Saturday lunchtime kick off knowing that a near capacity crowd will be backing the home side in their battle against relegation.

Millwall go into the game in 20th place in the Championship table, two points clear of Birmingham City, who currently occupy the final relegation place.

Birmingham travel to Bolton on the back of five consecutive defeats, however a point might be enough to save them from relegation if Doncaster Rovers lose away to Champions Leicester City.

For Millwall to be concerned, Birmingham would have to beat Bolton whilst Doncaster would have to avoid defeat at Leicester. That would leave Millwall level on points with Doncaster if they were to lose to the Cherries.

A 1-0 defeat would see Millwall stay up on goals scored as goal difference would be level on -30. However if the Cherries were to beat Millwall by a larger margin, Millwall would be relegated.

Cook told the Daily Echo...

'...We are going there to win, it is as simple as that. We want to finish as high as possible and can climb another spot so that is the target. We are treating it like any other game. We know it is going to be an unbelievable atmosphere but these are the games you want to play in and this is why we are in this league.

"We have been speaking about this game for a long time and, hopefully, we can go there and enjoy it. The atmosphere at the Den is always great and they are going to have to raise the roof because of their situation.

"Personally, I think they are safe anyway but they will need to win to make sure so it should be a good spectacle because both teams will be going all out for the three points."

".....Personally, I think they are safe anyway ....". Clearly a factually incorrect statement by a long way.
