Daniels completes 90 minutes

Charlie Daniels returned from injury to complete 90 minutes for the under-21s as they were drew 1-1 with AFC Wimbledon in the Central League Cup.

Playing alongside Jack Simpson, Tyrone Mings and Marc Pugh in a strong line up, with Kyle Taylor also making his return from injury.

Watched on by Eddie Howe and the first team coaching staff, the first-half started out as an even game, with the visitors digging in despite the Cherries having plenty of the ball.

Alex Dobre, who scored a brilliant hat-trick against QPR last time out, was lively, forcing the 'keeper into a few saves with drives from distance.

The killer ball just wasn't falling for the Cherries and at the break, Taylor was replaced by Gavin Kilkenny, the change planned as Taylor continues his rehab.

The Cherries' patience in possession though paid off ten minutes after the interval though, when Dobre did excellently down the right hand side, beating his man before drilling in a superb cross which allowed Pugh to convert with a tap in at the back post.

Keelan O'Connell, who also had a hat-trick last week, made way for Tyrell Hamilton before Daniels fizzed a low effort with his left foot from range narrowly wide.

But out of nothing, Wimbledon fashioned an equaliser as a looped cross was headed in by the unmarked striker in the area.

The Cherries almost nicked the win right at the death though, when subsitute Gavin Kilkenny was desperately close to cannoning a 20-yard effort into the net, but a slight nick diverted it an inch past the post.

That was the last action as the first team players came through unscathed, and the under-21s began their Central League Cup run with a point on the board.

Next up in the competition, the Cherries face Southend United on Tuesday 6th November away from home.
