    Has saved the first 3 penalties thus far in shootout vs Forest Green. 0-0 at FT. Kilkenny subbed on 84 minutes

    Bournemouth through 3-0 on penalties. So 100% (3/3) saved. Tough for Travers to put a claim for number one in a match like this, but saving all the penalties won’t do him any harm!

    He looked enormous. Great saves.

    We can now also add Travers to the list of names British commentators can't pronounce, SSN referring to him as Tray-vers.

    Gets a badly needed start in the cup this evening. Hopefully can put himself in the shop window for a loan move.

    Solid first half, not a lot to do but made one excellent save from a one and one, distribution has been good. He inspires so much more confidence in me than Kelleher. Such a presence in goal. I’ll be much more of a nervous wreck tomorrow if Kelleher gets an unexpected start.

    A championship loan would be ideal. Stoke City are desperate for a new keeper, Butland has made one mistake too many and their number 2 made a blunder today. Villa also linked with butland for coverage for Heaton, so could be good business all round. Would be a great move for Travers. Not sure where else is potentially available in championship. Preston seem to be persisting with Rudd. League one also a good option.

    Faces a penalty on stroke of half time. Hits the crossbar, travers had dived to left; his intimidating presence no doubt instrumental in the penalty miss...

    Finally a second goal for 2-0 after 67 minutes. Should see Kilkenny get some game time now. Fingers crossed

    No appearance for Kilkenny. Nothing for Travers to do this half, 3-0 up 10 minutes left. Both players need to concentrate in securing loan moves in the next few days now

    Disappointing to see Howe’s comments. Travers will play at end of month in FA cup but unlikely to feature in league unless Ramsdale has some stinkers. Travers needs to push for loan spell especially with their embarrassment of riches in the goalkeeping department

    I wouldn't worry too much about it - this is just the reality for goalkeepers - you generally don't get the opportunity to prove yourself like outfield players do, building up minutes with second-half substitute appearances in an effort to unseat an incumbent. Unless the first-choice 'keeper gets injured or, like you said, plays a few stinkers, they're going to hold the spot. So the best we can hope for for Travers in the short term is to get a couple more Cup games, replace Boruc on the bench and perhaps make a couple of appearances at the end of the season if Bournemouth are safe again (although relegation to The Championship might actually open the door for him, if Ramsdale is sold). If they stay up, he may want to ask for a loan next season

    Assuming Ramsdale is injured. Interesting but makes sense when you account for Boruc experience, but Howe clearly sees Travers as his second choice. However, he sees him as his second choice starter and Boruc a better option of the bench.

    Got caught bad for the goal trying to play it out from the back. Not 100% his fault but looked bad.

    Was a good 80-90% his fault, unfortunately.

    The MOTD2 panel were a bit more sympathetic to him to be fair. Woeful defending after he cleared the ball and very few decent options for him to pass to in the first place. Yes, he should have just booted it up the pitch but Eddie Howe said afterwards that their approach that cost them that goal has served them very well before.... who was a 20 year old GK to decide on his first league start of the season to step away from that tactic of playing it out from the back?

    Yeah, nobody came out of it looking too good but I still think he was the main culprit, mainly because he tried to be too clever when it was played back to him.

    How did he try to be too clever? All he did was take a first touch so he could strike cleanly with his second touch - but the attacker did not give him enough time to do this. He couldn't hit it first time up the field because the pass back was across his body and not onto his kicking foot.

    But agree, doesn't look good for him. And he needed a worldly performance to keep himself in the team going forward.

    He rolled his studs over the ball trying to control it I thought, trying to look composed maybe. Think it cost him the vital millisecond he needed to make a better fist of his clearance.

    I see it as simply a touch to tee it up for a clean strike. The ball back to him was in front and across his body. Difficult (for a goalkeeper) to strike that ball first time with accuracy and length.
