A superb extra-time strike from Abdul Fatawu helped Championship leaders Leicester City progress past Premier League Bournemouth into the FA Cup quarter-finals.

The tie finished goalless in normal time, with both sides hitting the post, alongside missing presentable chances.

With the half-time whistle approaching in extra time, Fatawu collected the ball on the edge of the area and curled a shot into the top right corner, via the fingertips of Cherries keeper Mark Travers.

The goal was enough to see Enzo Maresca’s side through to the last eight for the first time since they won the tournament in 2021.

The defeat stretches Bournemouth’s winless run to six games in all competitions but they can now concentrate on securing their Premier League survival, with Andoni Iraola’s side currently eight points clear of the drop zone.

The draw for the quarter-finals takes places at 19:00 GMT on Wednesday and will be streamed live on the BBC Sport website and app.
