Bournemouth comfortable Cup victors against Norwich

Bournemouth are into the Carabao Cup quarterfinals after a 2-1 win over Norwich City on Tuesday night.

Junior Stanislas put the Cherries ahead when he cut in from the left and hit an unstoppable right-foot shot.

Norwich improved after the break and equalised when winger Onel Hernandez netted from a tight angle.

But the visitors were level for only two minutes as they failed to clear a corner and Cherries defender Steve Cook hammered home from 12 yards.

Cherries boss Eddie Howe will reflect on a job well done after guiding his side into the last eight of the competition for only the third time in their history - all coming in the last five seasons. Manchester United await on Saturday.
