Millwall V Bournemouth at The Den : Match Preview

Millwall V Bournemouth - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.


Martin missing for Millwall

Millwall look set to be without Lee Martin for their final-day crunch clash at home to Bournemouth.


Winger Martin was carried off on a stretcher with a deep cut to his shin during the first half of last weekend's 1-1 draw at QPR.


Defender Dan Shittu remains on the sidelines with an Achilles problem and midfielder Ed Upson is out with an ankle injury.


The Lions, unbeaten in their last seven matches, are two points above the relegation zone and know a victory will guarantee their Championship status for another season.


Bournemouth will be without Elliott Ward.


The 29-year-old defender, who has made 25 appearances this season, went under the knife on Tuesday to sort a knee problem and he will be sidelined for the next three months and miss their clash with the Lions.


Norwich loanee Andrew Surman is set to start for the Cherries in what could be his final game for the club with his future up in the air and Eddie Howe is unlikely to make too many changes as they look for their highest-ever finish.


Howe's men could finish as high as eighth, four places higher than the record set by Harry Redknapp's side of 1988/89.
