AFC Bournemouth fans have been queuing overnight to get tickets for their FA Cup clash with Liverpool.

With a limited number being sold at the stadium many of the supporters left empty handed. But for the lucky ones, they said the long wait had been worth it.

Bournemouth play Liverpool in the FA Cup fourth round on 25 January.

AFC Bournemouth legend Steve Fletcher and Sam Matthews visited Twynham Comprehensive School last week to help raise money for the Typhoon Haiyan disaster in the Philippines.

The duo visited the school, based in Christchurch, to sign items for the school to later auction to rebuild the lives of those affected by the disaster, which forced over 4 million people from their homes.

Fletcher also led a question and answer session with Matthews, as the two entertained pupils with tales about life as a footballer at AFC Bournemouth.

Staff at the school also took part in a ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’ eating challenge, and the whole school contributed to a spare change appeal, with the two activities raising, as it stands, an additional £115 on top of the money raised via the auction.

Millwall crumble as Bournemouth pile on the pressure

Bournemouth improved as the first half wore on and pulled a goal back in the 43rd minute.

Scotland Under-21 winger Ryan Fraser took a pass from Lewis Grabban and curled a right foot shot just inside the post.

Bournemouth stormed into the second half and scored three goals in nine action-packed minutes.

The comeback was complete moments later when Tokelo Rantie squared the ball to Harry Arter who smashed home from just outside the box.

Bournemouth were then awarded a penalty in the 59th minute when Dunne was given a second yellow card for a deliberate handball and the revival was complete with a fifth goal in time added on at the end.

Cherries bounce back to beat Millwall

Millwall went ahead after only six minutes when Martyn Waghorn slotted home his second goal of the season from Liam Trotter's defence-splitting pass.

Bournemouth were still reeling from that setback when they conceded another four minutes later when another big gap appeared in their defence.

This time it was Waghorn who was the provider, with a pass which Trotter neatly lifted over on-loan goalkeeper Stephen Henderson.

Millwall had three players booked in an eight-minute spell in the first half, Alan Dunne and Shaun Derry for fouls and former Bournemouth left-back Scott Malone for a transgression at a free-kick.
