JASON Tindall was pleased to see his squad possesses "some cool customers under pressure" after Cherries held their nerve to defeat Crystal Palace.

After a goalless stalemate at Vitality Stadium, Cherries progressed into round three of the Carabao Cup with an incredible 11-10 shootout success against the Eagles.

All 20 outfield players found the net from the spot, before both goalkeepers Asmir Begovic and Wayne Hennessey missed from 12 yards.

David Brooks then slotted home for the second time before Begovic saved from Luka Milivojevic.

Asked if he'd ever seen a shootout quite like that before, Tindall told the Daily Echo: "No. I thought there was a very high standard of penalties that we saw.

"When it went round again, I felt it was going to be the same thing but fortunately Brooksy scored and Crystal Palace missed.

"It’s never nice when you go to penalties, there’s always got to be a losing team and that was Palace. But fortunately enough for us it was us that went through to the next round."

Quizzed on if his squad went through some extra penalty practice in the build-up to the clash, Tindall said: "No there wasn’t, just the normal, players mess around. But we’ve been in these situations before.

"We’ve got some cool customers under pressure and I felt they showed that tonight with the standard of penalties that they took."

Cherries created the clearest openings throughout the course of the 90 minutes.

Sam Surridge was denied by an offside flag after tucking in, despite appearing to be comfortably onside, while Hennessey did well to thwart Jack Stacey in the second half.

Asked if he felt his side deserved to go through, Tindall said: "Yes, I do. Over the course of the 90 minutes I felt we were the better side.

"I felt we scored a goal that, in my opinion, was onside. Looking at it back I felt Sam was two yards onside.

"And we created quite a few chances in the game, so I felt if anyone was going to win the game in the 90 minutes it was going to be us."
