Northampton Town travelled to Championship side AFC Bournemouth in the Capital One Cup second round on Tuesday night.


Boss Chris Wilder made four changes to the side that started against Shrewsbury with on-loan Tottenham goalkeeper Jordan Archer, Emile Sinclair, Lawson D’Ath and Ricky Ravenhill replacing Matt Duke, John-Joe O’Toole, Chris Hackett and Ivan Toney, who was rested from the matchday 18.


Bournemouth started brightly and nearly took the lead on 6 minutes, Eunan O'Kane’s shot cannoning against the underside of the Cobblers crossbar. Lee Collins then headed just wide from a Joel Byrom corner in the first opening for Town.


The home side’s pressure told on 21 minutes, Dan Gosling side-footing the ball home from 15-yards.


Brett Pitman made it 2-0 on the half hour, the Cherries striker keeping a cool head to slot the ball home after rounding debutant Archer.


The Cobblers had a chance to pull a goal back just before half-time but Marc Richards bullet header from a Kaid Mohamed cross went  narrowly over the bar.


John-Joe O’Toole replaced Ricky Ravenhill as the Cobblers enjoyed a good spell of possession ten minutes into the second half. The game was now a much more even contest and without really creating any clear cut chances Chris Wilder’s side were more than matching their Championship opponents in the second half.

Archer made a terrific point blank save to deny Cherries substitute Callum Wilson on 72 minutes before David Moyo came on for Emile Sinclair.

There was then a big moment for Alex Nicholls as he came on for the final 15 minutes, Nicholls first taste of competitive action since suffering a broken  leg against Port Vale back in October 2012.

Callum Wilson made it 3-0 to Bournemouth on 79 minutes, heading in on the rebound after a good initial save from Archer.

3-0 was how it finished as the Championship side booked their place in round 3 of the Capital One Cup.
