MANAGER Eddie Howe believes Cherries have been handed a “tough assignment” in their bid to end a 10-year wait to reach the third round of the League Cup.

Howe was speaking to the Daily Echo immediately after Cherries had been given a home tie against League Two outfit Northampton in the second round, with the draw having taken place earlier tonight.

Cherries, who booked their place following a 2-0 win at Exeter last night, will host the Cobblers during week commencing August 25, probably Tuesday, August 26.

Howe admitted a home draw had come as a relief with the tie sandwiched between two away trips for Cherries in the Championship – at Blackburn and Norwich.

Cherries last reached the third round in 2004-05 when Howe was on target in a penalty shootout at Ewood Park to earn them a home tie against Cardiff City.

Howe told the Daily Echo: “We will need to be at our best if we want to progress. A home draw was what we were looking for and we were delighted to get one.

“The draw has given us a tough assignment and Northampton will be full of confidence after knocking out Wolves at Molineux last night.

“Having beaten Championship opposition away from home, they will fancy their chances against us and we will need to be on our mettle.”

Discussing the possibility of a cup run, Howe added: “There are some great stories told in this competition and there are some great games which can be opened up if you manage to progress and why not go on a cup run to supplement our league form.

“When you have a squad the strength we believe we have then a cup run is essential to us to get the players minutes and keep everyone involved.

“Bradford reached the final not so long ago and what an occasion that is. It would be talked about for many years if that were to happen here. I am not saying we are going to do that but we would certainly love the chance to.”

Cherries, beaten by Northampton in the second round in 1964-65, eliminated the Cobblers in 1994-95 before going on to lose to Chelsea over two legs in the second round. The Dorset club’s best run in the competition came in 1961-62 and 1963-64 when they made the fourth round.

I was hoping for a home draw against a league 1 or 2 team. This cup is great for us to rotate the squad and give everyone a chance to impress.
I just looked at Northampton's squad and they've got a few good players. They won their game in the league too.
I also checked the Coventry (Bournemouth C squad) game and it seems for now Mcquoid is in the starting 11, but Allsop has already been dropped and Mo must be injured because he never even makes the bench, bring him back if he isn't injured.

It was a mesmirising draw the little bloke from SKY seemed to know who was playing at home before the balls came out the big teams were seeded so Man Utd couldnt play Bournemouth what a releif for Louia Van whatsit and Callum seemed to have a spare ball number 22 .with a little bit of help from Sky we could win this.

These lower league draws give me the hee-bee jee-bees as those teams are always going to be up for it. Oh well that's the hardship of being a 'seeded' team. At home with a bit of squad rotation is ideal and we should come out on top, surely Northampton can't beat two Championship clubs away from home in a row - unlikely methinks. Would be good to get through and get drawn with another of the 'unseeded' teams like Swindle.

I saw a rumour this morning that Cherries and Brentford are after the French midfielder Yannis Salibur (23). Though the report suggested he was a striker his Wiki page states he's a midfielder (L/R wing) and a goals to game ratio of 1 in 6 should (hopefully!) bear this out. Interestingly he has also played for Boulogne who wear the legendary red 'n' black kit.

We have the heart of the lower league clubs, having just so recently been one ourselves. Don't we? (especially with EH reminding them!)

Nothing changes- the side that will go out against Northampton will be former established players of a couple of seasons ago mixed with our fresh young talent. Keeping the rotation going will mean further opportunities for the old, the new and the very young to shine. The squad all want to play first team football these days, and who can blame them?

We are man enough to do the job on the night at DC.

The Cobblers will be quaking in their boots. Bring it on! We fans all want a cup run (EH appears to want that too!) particularly when it means that those now found on the bench get their chance for glory ...and yes, even those around Coventry (!) get a chance to dream of the sea, sand and triumphant return but only when good enough for our team's bus!

This cup and the FA Cup, is no longer seen as irrelevant or a distraction to us, but as a real opportunity to blood new talent, to test the mettle of some in the 'B team', rather than worry these days about injury to key players etc. etc.etc.

The past is behind us (No sh*t Sherlock I hear some cry!), but you know what I mean - sacrificing a cup run 'cause we had a weak pool of players/ being over-dependant on a few key players not getting injured, talent being available for the 'key' Saturday game (promotion/relegatio
n worries is, thankfully, no longer the case.

So let's enjoy and big the whole thing up! Bring the rosette and the rattle back out, we might be going to Wembley!

(Sorry at my age I still get very excited! I want to dance rather than wet my Farrah slacks! (No it's OK I ain't no Disco Stew! I wear Levis but I do eat prawn sandwiches these days!))

Come on you Reds - Saturday is going to be like Christmas Day, with a cheeky 2 nil and 3 points in the bag!

Believe...!

If I remember rightly a Notts Forest rag made some disparaging remarks about little-ole-B’mth last season that was put up in our dressing room and we turned them over. That’s why Eddie’s showing Northampton the respect they deserve, we’re not too many years away from being a lower league club ourselves so can also empathise. That said it is still a good draw for us and the expectation is for us to progress into the next round.
