Bournemouth 1-0 Brighton (aet)

Joshua King
Joshua King's goal was his first of the season

Bournemouth beat Brighton for the second time in five days as Joshua King's extra-time goal sent the Cherries into the Carabao Cup fourth round.

Eddie Howe's side beat the Seagulls 2-1 in the Premier League on Friday.

Both sides made changes from that game and struggled to break each other down, although Bournemouth's Junior Stanislas hit the bar in the first half.

But King finished off a neat exchange with Marc Pugh for the winner.

Brighton's record signing Jose Izquierdo was one of those to come into Chris Hughton's side for this game and had his best chance before the break, firing narrowly wide.

Bournemouth forward Jordon Ibe, who started the game after providing two assists on Friday, caused the Seagulls plenty of problems once again and was unlucky after a 20-yard run ended with Benik Afobe just failing to connect with his cross in the second half.

The Cherries have now reached the League Cup fourth round in three of their past four campaigns.

What they said:

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe: "Josh is off the mark now and Jermain Defoe got off the mark on Friday.

"That's good for them and good for us. Confidence is important for your strikers. It was a strange game, it was very similar in patterns to the game on Friday night where we dominated the ball.

"I thought we had our fluency and rhythm really going, our finishing could have been more clinical. We had to be patient. Very much so, we always take these games seriously. We have always had mixed results."

Brighton manager Chris Hughton: "When we went into the game I knew we would get a spirited performance.

"We went in with a different system, two kids in centre-midfield and one that has not even been involved in a first-team squad before.

"It was going to be about getting as many positives out of the game as we could. We knew we'd have to defend well and for large periods of the game we did that.

"We are lucky that we have an extra day given that we play Sunday, some of these players have played themselves into contention."
