Eastleigh 3 - 0 Bournemouth
Neither side dominated possession and there was a lot of quick precise passing from both sides. Eastleigh had most possession in their opponents half but Bournemouth looked comfortable despite losing their most influential midfielder after only a few minutes, and repelled the attacks. However two errors right on the edge of the penalty area before half time cost them dearly, and the half ended 2 - 0. In the second half Bournemouth pressed forward more and were beginning to dominate but were undone by a sharp Eastleigh move on the left of the penalty area.
Eastleigh fully deserved the victory but the six men of Bournemouth can feel proud of their efforts against a much more experienced cup team and can feel that the 0 - 3 scoreline does not properly reflect how close the game was.
