AFC Bournemouth: Cherries secure high-profile FA Cup clash with Liverpool

Bournemouth Echo: DOUBLE: Brett Pitman DOUBLE: Brett Pitman

BRETT Pitman scored twice as Cherries comfortably defeated Burton Albion tonight to book a glamorous – and lucrative – showdown with Premier League giants Liverpool.

The Anfield outfit will visit Dean Court for a live televised fourth round clash on January 25 with Cherries set to profit from a £144,000 broadcast fee and gate receipts from what is guaranteed to be a capacity crowd.

Cherries earned the chance to face the seven-time FA Cup winners – and pocketed £67,500 prize money in the process – by producing a dominant display to fend off the challenge of Burton in their rearranged tie in Dorset.

The Cherries faithful had donated generously to fund the travel costs of the away supporters but the home team were not in such charitable mood as they bossed proceedings for virtually the entire match.

Cherries got off to a dream start when Matt Ritchie crossed for the recalled Pitman to open the scoring with just five minutes on the clock.

Jimmy Phillips stunned the hosts when his heavily-deflected shot wrong-footed Ryan Allsop to restore parity against the run of play.

Cherries had been well on top but impressive visiting keeper Dean Lyness saved Burton on numerous occasions, denying Tokelo Rantie and Pitman with particularly excellent saves.

But after he had again showed his quality to foil Charlie Daniels, Lyness had no answer when the left-back turned provider for captain Tommy Elphick to convert just before half-time.

The Brewers enjoyed slightly more possession in the second half but, in truth, they never seriously threatened before Cherries confirmed their route to the next round in the closing stages.

Substitute Ryan Fraser profited from a sublime Pitman pass to hit the net before Pitman completed the scoring from the penalty spot after Harry Arter had been felled.

Cherries made five changes as boss Howe opted to rotate his squad following the 3-0 defeat at Wigan on Saturday.

One alteration was enforced with keeper Allsop replacing the ineligible Lee Camp. Fit-again Steve Cook was restored to central defence and winger Marc Pugh was promoted from the bench alongside attacking duo Rantie and Pitman, with Elliott Ward, Fraser, Andrew Surman and Lewis Grabban all named among the substitutes.

Burton arrived in Dorset fresh from forcing their way firmly into the League Two promotion mix on the back of an 11-match unbeaten run.

But the Brewers immediately found themselves on the back foot as their defence was exposed by the direct running and pace of Rantie during the early exchanges.

After the South African striker had twice got to the byline to provide low cutbacks, it proved third time lucky when he again found space in behind in the fifth minute.

His low pass found the onrushing Ritchie and although the wide man might have been fortunate to benefit from a ricochet, there was nothing lucky about his pinpoint cross which left Pitman the routine task of sliding in to convert at the far post.

The hosts continued to dictate but they were given a warning when Billy Kee sent Adam Buxton scampering clear, only for Allsop to come to the rescue with an excellent block.

As rain continued to pour from the Dorset skies, the pitch became increasingly slick with Cherries, whose possession stats rocketed to 82 per cent at one stage, trying to profit by moving the ball swiftly.

From one such move, a delightful Pitman backheel released the charging Daniels but while his cross was accurate, Rantie’s right-foot finish was wayward.

There was nothing wrong with Rantie’s effort on 27 minutes when the frontman darted in from the left to unleash a ferocious shot which Brewers keeper Lyness solidly parried.

Rantie was again involved as Cherries missed a golden opportunity to double their lead. His cross found Pugh and when the Lancastrian’s shot was blocked, Ritchie drilled the loose ball into the ground and over.

And Cherries were made to pay for failing to take their chances when Burton silenced Dean Court with an equaliser. Allsop was left helpless when Phillips’s 20-yard strike took a huge deflection on its way into the net.

Lyness was beginning to prove a problem for Cherries as he produced an exceptional save to deny Pitman at point-blank range before showing excellent handling to gather efforts from Arter and Rantie as Cherries attempted to regain their advantage.

The Brewers stopper again saved his side by plunging to his right to somehow repel a left-foot drive from the lively Daniels. But with the hosts piling on the pressure, Lyness had no answer when Daniels delivered a low cross for skipper Elphick, one of a number of Liverpool supporters in the Cherries ranks, to slot home his first goal of the season just before the interval.

Cherries came within inches of extending their lead when Pugh side-footed against the post following a surging run and precision cross from a Simon Francis raid down the right.

Rantie then launched a counter attack and his through ball split the Burton defence to find Pitman, only for Lyness to dive to his left and parry one-handed, a feat he repeated when Pugh took aim from a narrow angle.

As the weather deteriorated, the Brewers enjoyed their best spell of the match midway through the second half as they sought a route back into the contest.

The visitors enjoyed plenty of possession although examples of incisive attacking play proved few and far between as Cherries comfortably dealt with the Brewers’ best efforts.

And after remaining solid at the back, Cherries showed their cutting edge at the other end to finally break Burton’s resistance.

Chasing a leveller, they were caught on the break when substitute Lewis Grabban found Pitman. The mercurial forward produced a beautiful pass to find Fraser, who took a touch, composed himself and sent a delightful dink over the onrushing Lyness.

Pitman then got his second when he coolly thumped home from the spot after Arter had been felled by Burton centre-half Ian Sharps.

There was still time for Lyness to emerge with his head held high as he brilliantly tipped a Grabban shot on to the woodwork.

But the night belonged to Cherries as supporters quickly turned their attentions to watching their heroes against the likes of Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez in what promises to be a memorable occasion.

Star man - Brett Pitman

Restored to the starting line-up, Pitman took his chance to shine.

His early finish from Matt Ritchie’s cross was clinical and just what Cherries needed to hit Burton’s confidence.

Pitman was a lively contributor and his fine pass to set up Ryan Fraser was nothing short of exceptional.

The master penalty taker then completed his eye-catching performance by lashing home from 12 yards.

Charlie Daniels ran Pitman close for the star man honours with an energetic and exciting display on the left.

The gulf between the 2 sides was enormous, it just goes to show how far we've come in a few short years. That said, Burton gave a good account of themselves, but we made life difficult for ourselves, yet the conditions were dreadful, so full credit to the team for doing their damnedest to play football. Rantie was really different class, such a shame one of his shots never went in, perhaps he needs to ask Eddie if he can go home for a couple of days to slaughter a goat!! Ok, ok, but that's come from a guy in Cape Town LOL... But Fraser's goal made up for TK not scoring, in what I found to be an enthralling game... Good Luck to Burton, that banner was a nice touch!!

Two posts on here already stating that TK had a good game and quite rightly so, I was half expecting to read the anti Rantie brigade on here, he is good there's no doubt about that, possibly trying a little to hard to impress at times but that is a positive too, I did notice though with him up front with one other he is slightly better as the left forward supposed to the right but I only took note on this game on that, he deserved a goal tonight a pity it never come, I heard that his Father travelled from their homeland last week to see the game that was called off, and to the the Albion were disappointed with their wasted trip

Agreed. It's easy to look good and gloat when we are playing a team two leagues below us . Back to the proper tournament on Saturday.... Almost a must win game. With Grabban looking like he's on his way out and not a whisper of anyone coming in, is anyone as concerned as I am?

I agree season ticket holders should get first refusal, but i feel the club have gone about the general sale in the wrong way.
There will probably be hundreds of fans queing up overnight on friday at the stadium, Pavillion & Bic in poor weather, in the hope of getting tickets.
The club should have invited written applications by friday, which if valid would then be entered into a ballot, thus giving everyone an equal chance of a ticket, without the need to camp out overnight. Written applications would need to provide name, adress, postcode and email adress which could all have been checked against the clubs data-base to be validated. The club then emails the sucessful applicants, who can then make arrangments to pay for and collect tickets, seems the fairest way to me and this is how the big prem clubs handle ticket allocation.
Let's be fair to everyone, including exiled supporters that attend many games a season both home and away but can't get to Bournemouh in person on saturday morning.

Even though we missed few chances and made it look more difficult than it could have been there is a definite air of confidence amongst the team I thought, I hope they'll take it to Saturday's game and avenge for the drubbing we got at their place. UTC

General sales are from saturday and any unclaimed season tickets from sunday. Liverpool fans will be housed in the new stand so there will be over 2000 of them, but home fans wanting a ticket without a season ticket, should have at least 1 match from this season or have gone to burton game. The club is well run and all looks great but when it comes to tickets they are very poor.

brilliant to see TK play a great game. and Pitman get on the score sheet again, now bring on Watford we owe them a thrashing.
What's stupid about it? Those jokers were all over this site, slagging off EH and the team after the Wigan game, but when we play well and deservedly win, they are nowhere to be seen. Or are they all mates of yours of something?

General sales are from saturday and any unclaimed season tickets from sunday. Liverpool fans will be housed in the new stand so there will be over 2000 of them, but home fans wanting a ticket without a season ticket, should have at least 1 match from this season or have gone to burton game. The club is well run and all looks great but when it comes to tickets they are very poor.
Better than the free-for-all we had last season for the Wigan game where a lot of proper fans lost out to the once-a-season glory boys. At least the people who actually go to the games have a chance of getting a ticket this time.

Nonno, It would give me great pleasure to SHOUT(!!!) for you on Saturday, with Watford being next to us in the league at this time it should be a good game. Couldn’t make last night as away from home but good to hear we are playing with confidence (despite yet another Cherries Player glitch!) and good to see Brett back on the score-sheet and getting a good review, we could do with his goals!

Not confident that we can beat Liverpool at DC so looking forward to the reply at Anfield where we can take them on their own turf. Sharpen your teeth up Tommy & Cookie I hear Suarez tastes a bit spicy!!!

I can’t disagree that the season ticket holders pay their money up front and support the club budget the most, but implying everyone else is ‘fickle’ is total rubbish! I’m sure there are many non-ST holders (I include myself in this) that have watched many non-glory matches through many years.

Completely agree with you, that some ST holders think they are the bee's wotsits of supporters, because they are fortunate enough to be able to buy a ST. Many are not in that position, and often can only afford a few games a season, it doesn't make them less of a supporter!!

it was so good to see a good performance rewarded witha fine win, so many times in the past have we built up for a possible big match only to see us lose to clubs below us in the league, hopefully this will help Eddie to consider playing 2 up front at home, I hope all the fans who deserve the tickets get them, the non-season ticket holders are no less a supporter because they do not have the means to purchase one

To book tickets when on general sale, you must have previously been to a game and be on the clubs records. Helps a bit I suppose but surely will include all who went to the Madrid game but not to any other league game?

Whether it is counted or not the Real game was an exhibition game and shouldn't count, it should be League/Cup games only.

But at the end of the day if the tickets aren't available live on TV is better than commentary only.

Stand back and give it some thought...
If every ST holder bought two tickets, there wouldn't be enough to go around. Outside of a ST holder, someone would have to of bought a ticket for a league game. So Glory Hunters won't be on the data base. So if like me, you want another ticket, you'll have to queue up Saturday and take your turn for the extra ticket. I personally don't have a problem with this, why as ST holders, should we take all the tickets??

Really enjoyed the match last night, so many chances to score more, as well. Don't think we will have that opportunity on Saturday. Thought TK turned in a good lively performance unlucky not to get two, their goalie did a cracking job of keeping the score down!
Matt Ritchie had a quiet game but was the creator of the build up in one of the goals at least. Thought we seem so slow in a lot of our build ups (Wet conditions perhaps) Noticed post Wigan, there was a bit of a "Gloomy" atmosphere ,due to disappointment of the nature of Saturdays loss and negative speculation over "Grabs" future, perhaps! So last night went a long way to clear that, and of course a good showing on Saturday will do wonders for morale!
All in all we are in a good position with a good manager, a squad that improving every game. UTC

Spot on afcbpete 6000+ season ticket holders if they went to the game or not they would still get a ticket plus one that leaves none for general sale. I think afcb got the allocation about right given the time scale. I was just glad that you need to be on the data base for a league game and not just a stub for the Burton game.

The reason I say is I have a ST but my son doesn't, he comes to the majority of games though, I just read it that if I wait until Saturday I can get them both together as opposed to queuing twice, it does say in the email that I can get my seat as a ST holder on Saturday and I can have another one aswell, I understand and agree that ST holders can't go straight in and have two but if I get mine on Saturday are they not going to let me get them both at the same time

They will, but your going to have to queue for many hours along with everyone else, where I was in and up in about 40 minutes!! So if having queued for that period of time, you deserve the extra ticket. Possibly see you in the queue, as I'll be getting a ticket for my wife.... HOPEFULLY!!

Phil McG (Italy) says...

As far as the tickets are concerned, the process is as fair as possible considering the delay caused by the postponement of the original match.
Season ticket holders who just want their seat have from today to Saturday to claim.
Season ticket holders who want their seat and another will have to claim on Saturday (or queue twice if they so wish).
Non-season ticket holders with history of attending league matches can claim up to 2 seats on Saturday.
Any unclaimed season tickets will go on general sale on Sunday. However, I'd be surprised if the match wasn't sold out by the end of Saturday.
On the downside, Saturday will be chaotic considering we have a home game then as well. I'd suggest those who are getting Watford tickets do so in advance.
Remember that you can also claim for a ticket at the BIC, Pavilion, on the phone and through afcbdirect. Good luck, it could be you.

The tickets are prioritized. Season tickets first. They are the people who give the club money up front, so to help with budgeting throughout the campaign. Otherwise we would rely on our fickle followers who only turn up when we're doing well or playing a big team!!
I can’t disagree that the season ticket holders pay their money up front and support the club budget the most, but implying everyone else is ‘fickle’ is total rubbish! I’m sure there are many non-ST holders (I include myself in this) that have watched many non-glory matches through many years.
Reeeeegards
Completely agree with you, that some ST holders think they are the bee's wotsits of supporters, because they are fortunate enough to be able to buy a ST. Many are not in that position, and often can only afford a few games a season, it doesn't make them less of a supporter!!
I agree. Due to financial reasons, I rarely go to matches...I went last night because tickets were cheaper....got soaked but loved every second of it, (except the Burton goal)! When Bournemouth play I listen to the Radio Solent commentary and no-one is more happy than me when they win! I love my team just as much people who are fortunate enough to be able to attend matches regularly.

alasdair1967 I much rather read these 56 comments than 109 of last week (albeit the majority of them were in response to my provocation). I have to say that as far as I am concerned they are not missed neither are their repetitive comments.

Some trouble 25 or so miles Eastward from here by the sound of it but I am sure they can resolve it.

I think the only squabbling will re the ticket allocation ,I'm resound to the fact I will be in a pub watching on television ,due to the nature of my job I cannot warrent purchasing a season ticket due to the amount of games I will miss throughout the season ,I do however attend when I can both home and away ,fingers crossed for a good close game on the 25th fingers toes legs all crossed we can pull of an upset

Surely if regulars are that desperate for a ticket most would be able to get in a queue nice and early, I know for some that might be difficult but the majority can probably sort something out, when we went to wembley for the auto windscreen final I got to dean court for 5 am expecting a big line of people on to find it deserted, got the football out in the car park only for my mate to whack it over the old supporters club into the south end, made a prat of myself on south today cos I was the first to get a ticket when it opened, happy days!!!!!

From what I have heard season ticket holders are able to secure there seats from 9 am today then the remaining tickets go on general sale 9 am Saturday morning
I agree season ticket holders should get first refusal, but i feel the club have gone about the general sale in the wrong way.
There will probably be hundreds of fans queing up overnight on friday at the stadium, Pavillion & Bic in poor weather, in the hope of getting tickets.
The club should have invited written applications by friday, which if valid would then be entered into a ballot, thus giving everyone an equal chance of a ticket, without the need to camp out overnight. Written applications would need to provide name, adress, postcode and email adress which could all have been checked against the clubs data-base to be validated. The club then emails the sucessful applicants, who can then make arrangments to pay for and collect tickets, seems the fairest way to me and this is how the big prem clubs handle ticket allocation.
Let's be fair to everyone, including exiled supporters that attend many games a season both home and away but can't get to Bournemouh in person on saturday morning.
How much would a ticket fetch on Ebay?

There will probably be hundreds of fans queing up overnight on friday at the stadium, Pavillion & Bic in poor weather, in the hope of getting tickets. The club should have invited written applications by friday, which if valid would then be entered into a ballot, thus giving everyone an equal chance of a ticket, without the need to camp out overnight. Written applications would need to provide name, adress, postcode and email adress which could all have been checked against the clubs data-base to be validated. The club then emails the sucessful applicants, who can then make arrangments to pay for and collect tickets, seems the fairest way to me and this is how the big prem clubs handle ticket allocation.
