Neil Harris:

We know Bournemouth's ability, you've just got to look at their squad on paper. The quality of player they’ve got throughout the team. They’ve had a good start to the season. We know the level of test in front of us, but that’s why we play the game.

"We want to test ourselves against the best sides in the division and you want to challenge yourselves as a group against the best teams, so we’ve got.

"We've got a lot to prove in the game. We've got momentum from the weekend, where we had a fine performance, following up an excellent point at Blackburn a couple of weeks before.

"So we’ve had had a really good spell and a really good transfer window. Our point to prove is that we need to get the ball rolling at the Cardiff City Stadium as I think quite a lot of teams do in the UK at the moment, with the amount of away wins.

"But we’re one in particular, where we’re conscious of the fact that we need to get off the mark at home.”
