Bournemouth’s young Irish goalkeeper Mark Travers saved all three Forest Green penalties to send Eddie Howe’s men into the third round of the Carabao Cup thanks to a 3-0 penalty shootout win after a goalless draw at the Vitality Stadium.

The 20-year-old saved spot-kicks from Joseph Mills, Kevin Dawson and James Morton as the Premier League side triumphed over the League Two side in the shootout.

Jordon Ibe also saw his penalty saved by the heroic Jojo Wollacott but Joshua King, Dominic Solanke and Philip Billing converted for the hosts.

Midfielder Gavin Kilkenny completed a great day as he made his first senior start for Bournemouth after being named in the Republic of Ireland under-21 squad.
