Adam Smith’s own goal secured Newcastle a place in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup as Eddie Howe’s men overtook his former club Bournemouth.

The Kirschen skipper’s bad luck in the 67th minute was enough to put the Magpies in the St.

When the win was deserved – the Magpies dominated much of the 90 minutes in front of an expectant crowd of 51,579 – it proved hard-fought as goalkeeper Nick Pope had to save from substitute Jack Stacey and Dominic Solanke to save and secure his goal seventh win in a row.

Howe made a significant statement when he included all five of his returning World Cup stars – Pope, Kieran Trippier, Fabian Schar, Bruno Guimaraes and Callum Wilson – on his starting line-up.

Trippier circled a free-kick in the 13th minute after Lewis Cook brought Joelinton back and Sean Longstaff fired wide after intercepting Adam Smith’s loose pass seconds later.

Pope had to be alert to concede Kieffer Moore’s knockdown to Ryan Christie as the visitors reacted, but opposite number Mark Travers was relieved to see Schar’s pile driver fly just wide of his right post in the 20th minute, without a chance to reach him.

Howe and assistant Jason Tindall repeatedly camped in the technical area, encouraging their side to move the ball faster while Bournemouth was sitting deep and they thought they had pressed on after 26 minutes when Wilson fired a shot past Travers, only to be by one delayed offside flag to be welcomed.

When is the quarter final draw?

The quarter-final draw will take place live on InNewCL Sports on Thursday night after Manchester City v Liverpool. The round of 16 games are then scheduled to take place in the week starting January 9, 2023.

The England attacker headed a Trippier cross and then cleared the bar with a well-delivered volley in the 35th minute, Newcastle redoubling their efforts, but Travers easily parried a Guimaraes shot from long-range six minutes before the break.

Miguel Almiron should have opened the scoring at half-time but missed a penalty when he found Dan Burn’s cross over the far post and the home side were grateful for a deft stoppage-time connection between Jaidon Anthony and Jordan Zemura and Solanke ultimately found himself in the sands.

The Magpies lacked precision early in the second half when Schar missed an inviting free-kick from Trippier in front of goal and were cautioned in the 57th minute when Moore missed a header from Smith’s cross.

With Anthony and Zemura increasingly influential as Bournemouth assembled a series of counterattacks, the game opened up but the visitors contributed to their own downfall when the impasse was eventually broken.

Smith fought manfully in the air to prevent Wilson from reaching Trippier’s cross but only managed to head the ball into his own net on the line, despite the best efforts of teammate Marcos Senesi.

Stacey tested Pope with a solid shot 16 minutes from time and Travers had to scrape Guimaraes’ deflected shot but Solanke was denied by the England keeper’s death.

What’s next?

Newcastle return to the Premier League on Boxing Day when they travel to the King Power Stadium at 3pm to take on Leicester.

Meanwhile, Bournemouth return the next day, Tuesday 27 December, when they take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge at 5.30pm.
