Bournemouth 1-0 Portsmouth

Eunan O'Kane

Eunan O'Kane scored the only goal as Championship side Bournemouth beat League Two neighbours Portsmouth to reach the Capital One Cup second round.

O'Kane netted on the rebound when a Ryan Fraser shot had been pushed out by Pompey keeper Phil Smith on 54 minutes.

The Cherries were the better side throughout and deserved their win.

Wes Thomas blazed a header over and Smith produced a fine save to keep out Andrew Surman's 20-yard shot, but the hosts did not need a second goal.

Tom Craddock came closest to netting for Pompey with a rasping strike that went just wide with the score 0-0.
