Premier League Cup: Norwich 1-0 AFC Bournemouth
AFC Bournemouth's under-21s were dealt a cruel blow conceding in the 90th minute in a 1-0 reverse to Norwich City in the Premier League Cup.
The away trip to Carrow Road saw the Cherries create a number of good chances but a last-gasp Todd Cantwell strike saw Carl Fletcher's men fall to an unfortunate defeat.
The result means that the Cherries sit third on three points in their Premier League Cup group, with three crucial games - two at home - left to secure qualification.
Within the first 20 minutes, the visitors were on top, with Kyle Taylor and Mikael Ndjoli both going close to the opener.
Taylor did have the ball in the net shortly after as he tapped in following a brilliant flowing move, but the linesman instantly raised his flag to disallow it.
In the 25th minute though, a bigger chance was spurned when Ndjoli found himself with plenty of room and clean through on goal, but his low effort was well read by Aston Oxborough who made a tremendous save.
The chances kept coming and four minutes before the break, some excellent Norwich defending saw both Taylor and Keelan O'Connell denied in the area with blocks to stop certain goals.
After the interval Mark Travers had to be on his toes to make two tremendous saves, one a superb reflex stop to deny Tristan Abrahams' powerful drive from the edge.
With 15 minutes to go it was the 'keeper at the other end making a good stop, Oxborough palmed out O'Connell's effort in the area and under-18s winger Antonio Diaz narrowly missed the header from the rebound.
Despite the pressure and an open contest, the Cherries were countered on with seconds left to play, as Cantwell drove at the heart of the defence and managed to find an accurate low drive which nestled into the bottom corner.
It was late, but the Cherries were made to rue their missed chances on a cold evening in Norfolk.
