Kieffer Moore scored for the second game in a row as Premier League-bound Bournemouth produced one of the narrow football results of the weekend in the Championship. Milwall had a slender chance of making the playoffs but their hopes were dashed with Sheffield United and Luton Town both winning their games. Kieffer Moore scored the only goal of the game for the hosts in the 81st minute.
Bournemouth’s Scott Parker: “I wanted to make sure that my team produced the performance objectives, in terms of we had things to play for – the record of clean sheets today in this division. Can we get a clean sheet to be the team that has the cleanest sheets in his division? Can we be the team that has conceded the least amount of goals? Can we be the team that has lost the least amount of games in this division as well? One million percent we are going to need to build on that.”
Millwall’s Gary Rowett: “It’s been a tough season in many ways, we’ve had to work incredibly hard – probably a lot harder than we normally would have to work in a season just to find ways to win games. But the team find a way because it has got such character and such hunger and drive and, even today, I think we’d give the game a really good go. It’s been a good season and I’ve said that to the players in there. Don’t be downhearted. We should all be very proud of what we’ve achieved. As a manager, I’m always going to be a little bit more miserable because I want to get into the top six, but I think the players, they’ve given everything and I can’t really ask for a lot more from them.”
