Cherries progress to FA Cup third round

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe was pleased with the performance that saw the Cherries safely progress to the third round of the FA Cup for the first time since 2005.

Goals from Wes Fogden and Eunan O'Kane initially put the Cherries two goals ahead in a comfortable first half, before a 72 minute Mark Beck goal for the home side brought Carlisle back in contention before Marc Pugh sealed the win in the 90th minute.

The Cherries banked 27,000 in prize money and a place in the hat for the FA Cup Third Round draw, which will be made at around 2.30pm this (Sunday) afternoon live on ITV1 and ESPN.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

"We are in the hat for the third round draw which is one of the highlights of the FA Cup. The players deserve credit because Carlisle is a really difficult place to play and they responded brilliantly to the challenge.

"I thought we controlled the game. We were brave, we played from back to front and we wanted the ball. I felt we dictated the game. I can`t remember them having too many chances. Apart from their goal, I thought it was a really good performance.

"It isn`t easy when you come away from home. Their supporters got behind them and Carlisle are a decent side so we had to get the basics right and we did. The players were brave and composed. We have got some really good footballers in this team and I thought that showed."
