Premier League Cup: Forest date for Cherries


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth will face Nottingham Forest in the last 16 of the Premier League Cup, with the tie to be staged later this month.

The Cherries booked their place after finishing as runners-up in Group C and will visit Forest, the unbeaten winners of Group D.

Burnley’s 1-0 win against West Brom on Friday saw them knock the Cherries off top spot to earn a home tie against Leicester.

Forest eased into the last 16 after recording doubles over Leicester and Exeter, coupled with beating and drawing with Norwich in their six group games.

The Cherries will meet Forest at the City Ground on Friday 15th March (1pm kick-off).

Shaun Cooper’s team will be hoping to eclipse last season’s efforts when the Cherries bowed out in the last 16 after losing 3-2 at Newcastle.

All matches in the last 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals and final are one-off knockout ties. If the ties are level after 90 minutes, they go to extra-time and then penalties if the teams still cannot be separated. All last 16 ties must be played between Thursday 14th March and Sunday 17th March.

Premier League Cup last 16: Burnley v Leicester City, Derby County v Wolverhampton Wanderers, Everton v Sunderland, Leeds United v Fulham, Nottingham Forest v AFC Bournemouth, Reading v Newcastle United, Stoke City v Blackburn Rovers, Swansea City v Aston Villa.
