Last season’s surprise semi-finalists Burton claimed another big scalp in the Carabao Cup as they beat Bournemouth to reach round four in a game stopped three times for floodlight failure.

The Brewers were deserved winners, given to them by fine finishes from Oliver Sarkic and Nathan Broadhead.

Bournemouth made 10 changes and it showed in a limp, ineffectual display.

Their attempt to find momentum was not helped by delays for the failed lights, leading to 28 added minutes.

At one stage, it looked as though the game had been abandoned before the lights were restored and play was able to continue a conclusion.
