Bournemouth missed the opportunity to move to the top of the table when they were held by Milwall in one of the even football results of the Championship. Dominic Solanke scored his 15th goal of the season to put the Cherries ahead in the first half. It was not to be as Benik Afobe scored the equalizer against his former club which left them four points adrift of a playoff place. It was a second game on the bounce where the second-place team has failed to win after a shocking loss to Derby last weekend.
Millwall’s Gary Rowett: “A top side like Bournemouth, they’re a really good side. I think they’re one of the two outstanding sides in the division at the moment along with Fulham. But I think they will be delighted with a point going home tonight, and I think we’re disappointed that we didn’t get all three.”
Bournemouth’s Scott Parker: “I think we started the game well. I thought Millwall would come right out of the blocks and we’d have to weather it a little bit, which I thought we did. We did very well, it caused them some problems, we got our noses in front. Fair to say the second half was not the way we would have liked it. I thought we were holding on for large parts of the second half. They went from back to-front pretty direct, full credit to them, they caused us a lot of problems, the goal was poor on our behalf, one long ball from 40 yards.”
