Newcastle reached the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup with a hard-fought win over Bournemouth at St James Park.
Adam Smith’s own goal proved decisive for the hosts, with the defender inadvertently slotting past Cherries keeper Mark Travers from Kieran Trippier’s superb delivery.
It was no more than Eddie Howe’s side deserved, with the home side creating the bulk of the scoring chances.
Newcastle will find out who they meet next in Thursday night’s draw.
Magpies boss Howe included goalkeeper Nick Pope, full-back Trippier and striker Callum Wilson, who were all part of England’s squad for the World Cup in Qatar, in the starting XI against Howe’s old club.
Swiss defender Fabian Schar and Brazilian midfielder Bruno Guimaraes also started the competition for a home side that looked almost complete.
And they started off on the right foot with Trippier, Schar, Miguel Almiron and Wilson all nearly breaking the deadlock in the first half, with the latter also having an effort ruled out for offside in front of the 51,579 crowd.
Gary O’Neil’s determined and disciplined side at Bournemouth will also regret not taking advantage of their few clear opportunities.
Wales striker Kieffer Moore headed wide when well placed, substitute Jack Stacey forced Pope into a good save, and Dominic Solanke also saw a late effort superbly blocked by the Newcastle keeper.
However, it secured a fourth quarter-final since 2014-15 for Newcastle, runners-up beaten in the 1975-76 season.
