SUBSTITUTE Tyrese Briscoe broke Cherries’ FA Youth Cup hearts as he popped up to seal a 3-2 fifth-round victory for Millwall at Vitality Stadium.

Briscoe came off the bench to win the contest after Alan Connell’s men had bravely fought their way back from 2-0 down thanks to goals from Euan Pollock and Khavarn Williams.

But it was the Lions who progressed to the last eight of the competition, setting up a tie with either Wolves or Chelsea in the next round.

Cherries were indebted to goalkeeper Cameron Plain after just two minutes of the fifth-round tie when Millwall were awarded an early penalty.

Referee Dale Wootton showed no hesitation in pointing to the spot after right-back Brooklyn Genesini, who had trained with Eddie Howe’s first team this season, brought down his man in the box.

Up stepped Sean O’Brien for the visitors but Plain flew to his right to deny him with a top-drawer save.

But O’Brien was not to be denied on a second occasion as Cherries fell behind on six minutes.

Nana Boateng teed up the attacking midfielder, who unleashed a venomous strike into the bottom corner.

The hosts looked to respond when Luke Pardoe was fouled by towering Millwall centre-half Alex Mitchell but Ben Greenwood’s left-foot free-kick sailed just wide.

Plain was then tasked with keeping the hosts in the contest midway through the first half with a sharp reaction stop.

A corner headed down fell to Oliver Bate, whose acrobatic effort looked goalbound until Plain tipped over.

The visitors then spurned a glorious opportunity to double their advantage.

Afrer O’Brien’s perfectly-weighted through ball – pacey frontman Abdul Abdulmalik’s poked finish fell just wide of the far post.

Pardoe then seemed to unlock the door to the Millwall defence just before the interval.

He found James Oliver, who had cut in from the left flank but the strike was too easy for Leighton Fanshawe in the away goal.

And it took just 64 seconds of the second half before Abdulmalik added Millwall’s second.

The youngster, who has been called up by England under-17s, outpaced both centre-backs and applied a deft finish to make it 2-0.

Cherries introduced Pollock six minutes into the second half and he almost had an instant impact.

He picked up a pass from Williams, who had raced forward on the counter. Pollock picked out Pardoe – whose low driven shot was blocked away to safety.

Home keeper Plain continued to keep his side in the tie with some sharp stops and Cherries were given a lifeline six minutes past the hour mark.

After Oliver picked the pocket of Millwall’s Ben Bennett. He found Pollock who played a neat one-two before slotting the ball past Fanshawe.

And just like that, Cherries were level at 2-2.

A sublime cross-field ball from Nathan Moriah-Welsh picked out Pardoe. He ghosted inside and cut back for Williams to strike home and set up a grandstand finish.

But it was substitute Briscoe who sealed the tie for Millwall with the winner nine minutes from time.

He ran on to a pass from Abdumalik to cap off a slick counter-attack to book the visitors place in the next round.
