Carabao Cup 3rd round

AFCB official image: AFCB win through to fourth round.
A Callum Wilson stoppage time header put the Cherries through to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup in a five goal thriller at Dean Court. Junior Stanislas got Bournemouth off to a great start in the Carabao Cup with his first goal of the season after 14 minutes when he converted a cross from Simon Francis. Jordan Ibe then made it 2-0 early in the second half from the penalty spot after he had been brought down by Darragh Lenihan, but Blackburn fought back with Craig Conway unleashing a powerful shot from distance that beat Artur Boruc and Ming's foul on Brereton in the box gave a penalty to Blackburn which Adam Armstrong scored from to make it 2-2 with 19 minutes to go. Everything looked set for penalties until added time when Williams received a straight red for a fouling Callum Wilson and for handball. Wilson then scored from the corner heading in to make it 3-2 in stoppage time.

Bournemouth put out a strong team to play Blackburn with Adam Smith and Jefferson Lerma keeping their places from the weekend's game against Burnley. Junior Stanislas was given his first start to the season.

29 | Good block by Mings. The defender throws himself in front of an Armstrong corner to avert the danger for now.

32 | So close to a second! Francis again bursts down the right and swings one in for Defoe, but it takes an excellent save from Raya to keep the shot out.
