With big spending Notts County to visit Dean Court in the FA Cup, Cherries Chairman Eddie Mitchell is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo on the match as saying: "My own personal feelings are that it’s the biggest game for me since I’ve been in football, as regards to importance and that it leads to, possibly, really big things. I’m probably as nervous as I’ve been for a long, long time. It’s the furthest I’ve been in this competition and it’s great. It’s one of the most important games Eddie has been in charge of, other than saving us from relegation. We’re both keen to do well. There is in excess of £25,000 on this game, which would be welcome, and it’s a chance to move on to a situation where we could go a long way to helping our cause. If it happens, it would make for a great next round in the new year and it would be a great thing to look forward to".
