Our prediction for this Championship match:
Vitality Stadium will host Tuesday’s postponed fixture between Bournemouth and Millwall. The Cherries head into the match following a 4-1 FA Cup win over Oldham, meaning that they are high on confidence ahead of the visit of Millwall. Joshua King, who scored a brace at the weekend, is likely to keep his place in the starting XI, while Danjuma and Mepham remain in the recovery room.
The Lions, on the other hand, are not enjoying a season to remember, with the team sitting in the 17th position in the standings. The capital club aim to escape the danger zone, but we are tempted to put our money on the promotion-chasing team this time out as the Cherries have been showing signs of improvement of late. Both Mahoney and Mitchell are sidelined with injuries for the visitors, while key midfielder Jed Wallace returns to the starting XI after he was rested in the FA Cup win over Boreham Wood.
