Bournemouth keeper Darryl Flahavan has described the new FA Cup ball as a “nightmare” in the run up to his side’s first-round replay at Gillingham.
Flahavan, 32, said he would have expected to save two of the Gillingham goals that saw the visitors earn a replay by snatching a 3-3 draw.

AFC Bournemouth boss Lee Bradbury says he’d like to keep Town’s Jaime Peters on loan for a third month with his current spell due to end after this Saturday’s game against Oldham. The 24-year-old has made 10 appearances for the Cherries without scoring, playing at both right-back and on the wing.
Manager Lee Bradbury is keen for defensive duo Steve Cook and Jaime Peters to extend their loan spells with Bournemouth. The pair are due to return to their respective clubs after the Cherries face Oldham this Saturday.
Canada international Peters is already in his second temporary spell with Bradbury’s side from Ipswich, while Cook has almost completed his one-month loan from Brighton.
Bradbury told Bournemouth’s official website: “Both of their loans are up on Saturday and I will be looking at it in the next couple of days to see whether we can extend them or not in both cases.
“I’ve had a brief chat with both of them, and they’re enjoying playing and would be happy to stay.
“Steve’s come in and we got three clean sheets and a heavy defeat at Brentford since he arrived. I’ve been very pleased with him on the whole, he’s good on the ball and can defend too. Jaime has been versatile and done well in a couple of positions.”
