CHERRIES booked their place in the third round of the FA Cup for the first time in eight years with victory over Carlisle today.

Goals from Wes Fogden, Eunan O'Kane and Marc Pugh eased Eddie Howe's men to a comfortable victory at Brunton Park with Mark Beck replying for the hosts.

Fogden, O’Kane, Shwan Jalal, Steve Cook and Brett Pitman were drafted in as boss Howe made no fewer than five changes to the Cherries starting line-up.

Goalkeeper Jalal replaced David James, who was rested, while defender Cook came in for skipper Miles Addison, who was ruled out due to injury.

O’Kane came in for suspended Harry Arter in central midfield and Fogden and Pitman replaced Josh McQuoid and Matt Tubbs, who both dropped to the bench.

Jalal pulled off an early double save to prevent Matty Robson from firing the Cumbrians ahead, the Cherries goalkeeper thwarting the midfielder at his near post.

Robson then failed to hit the target with the goal gaping from 10 yards before Jalal gathered a swerving free-kick from Dave Symington.

Cherries opened the scoring on 30 minutes when Fogden took aim from the edge of the box, his strike appearing to take a deflection to deceive Carlisle goalkeeper Adam Collin.

O’Kane quickly doubled Cherries’ lead, the Ulsterman blasting home an unstoppable right-foot drive following good work from Marc Pugh and Fogden.

Chances were at a premium in the second half, with Lewis Grabban seeing an effort blocked after 55 minutes.

Beck threw Carlisle a lifeline when he climbed at the far post to head home a Jon Paul McGovern free-kick in the 72nd minute after Jalal had failed to gather.

Jalal atoned when he dived full length to his left to keep out Beck’s low drive after the teenager had played a one-two with Brad Potts.

However, man of the match Pugh deservedly had the last word when he completed the scoring from close range following a cross from Simon Francis.
