After scrapping extra time for the first five rounds this season, here was a good case to ditch the 90 minutes too.

With regular time largely uneventful, the best action came in the penalty shootout, with the first 20 takers all scoring and no lines fluffed until Asmir Begovic's spot kick was saved by Wayne Hennessey who then blazed his chance to win it high into the empty stand, goal-kick style.

The tie was finally settled when Begovic, making his first Bournemouth appearance for 528 days, dived to his left to deny the usually reliable Luka Milivojevic's second attempt of the shootout.
