SCOTT Malone says beating Bournemouth to secure Championship safety would be extra sweet after Millwall were thrashed 5-2 by the Cherries in October.
The Lions scored two early goals at Dean Court but were pegged back before half time and had Alan Dunne sent off at 3-2 before they capitulated.
Malone, who moved to The Den from the Cherries in May 2012, is relishing the chance to make amends for that heavy defeat against his former club.
Victory on Saturday would guarantee Millwall's second-tier status.
Malone said: "Beating Bournemouth would be lovely after what they did to us. Dunney got sent off and then it went Pete Tong, but we are playing great football now.
"I think you saw that in the first half against QPR and if we can do it again at home on Saturday, I don't think we've got any worries.
"We've just got to win. If we win then we are safe so it is in our hands. I don't think we can go into the game anxious, we've just got to play like we did last weekend."
Malone has also hailed the job done by Ian Holloway since he took the helm at The Den.
"He has come in and has tried to get his philosophy into us," Malone said. "He is massive on structure and I think it took us a little bit of time to get used to that.
"We haven't lost in seven so he has done a massive job. His record of getting to the play-off finals three years out of the last four isn't bad is it?
"He has done a great job coming in at the end of this year and hopefully we can get Championship status for next year and then really kick on."
