Millwall and Bournemouth over the years...

The Lions travel to Bournemouth on Saturday looking to improve on their last trip to face The Cherries - a 2-0 defeat in League One back in March 2008.

Millwall's most recent victory away at the south coast side was back in the 2000/1 season when Neil Harris' 15th goal of the season earned The Lions all three points after Bournemouth's young loanee Jermaine Defoe cancelled out Christophe Kinet's opener for the visitors.

That win was one of 10 for Millwall away to The Cherries over the years, compared to Bournemouth's 16 at their home with a further eight ending in draws.

The two sides have met on 72 previous occasions, 36 of which have ending in Millwall victories. Bournemouth have won 25 of those meetings, with just 11 finishing all-square.

The last encounter between the two clubs came in the League Cup early in the 2009/10 season (pictured) when a superb hat-trick from Harris and another from Gary Alexander saw Millwall run out comfortable 4-0 winners at The Den.

The teams that day:

Millwall: Forde, Dunne, Smith, Frampton, Barron, Hackett, Fuseini, Abdou (Laird, 76'), Alexander (Grabban, 75'), Harris (Grimes, 81'), Morison. Subs not used: Sullivan, Bolder, Martin

Bournemouth: Jalal, Garry, Pearce, Cummings, Igoe (McQuoid, 72'), Robinson, Feeney, Molesley (Bartley, 55'), Pitman, Goulding (Fletcher, 46'), Bradbury. Subs not used: Pryce, Guyett
