Team news ahead of Emirates FA Cup clash

6 January 2017

Chopper has fully fit squad to choose from to face The Cherries

Neil Harris will have a fully-fit squad at his disposal for Saturday's Emirates FA Cup Third Round tie, while Eddie Howe has hinted at making sweeping changes for AFC Bournemouth's trip to The Den (3pm).

Millwall have named an unchanged squad for the previous four League One matches but the Lions boss hasn't ruled out shuffling his pack.

"What I have got are players champing at the bit to get into the team and I will consider that," Harris toldĀ millwallfc.co.uk

"We had a very busy Christmas period and some weren't firing on all cylinders by the end of it. Maybe in this different style of game it might suit a few players to come back into the team.

"I don't know what kind of team AFC Bournemouth will put out, but Eddie Howe has amassed a fantastic Premier League squad and whatever team he names will be a very difficult test for us," he added.

The Cherries assistant coach Jason Tindall told the club's website that changes will be made for the trip to London. Defender Simon Francis has been ruled out after his red card against Arsenal in midweek, while midfielder Jack Wilshere is eligible to play having been ineligible to face his parent club in Tuesday's 3-3 draw.

"We will pick a team we believe is good enough to win. We've got three or four players with knocks, so there will be some changes," said Tindall.

"When you go to Millwall it's never an easy place to play, regardless of the competition. We know they'll make things tough."
