BBCU 0-1 Army Utd (AET)

Army United booked their place in the last 16 of the League Cup with a 1-0 victory after extra time over BBCU.

The match in general was a dire spectacle with little tempo or passion from the mainly second string sides selected for this tie.

The best chance in the first 45 came five minutes before the break for Army when Mongkol got his toe to Diakite's cross, but it fell wide of the post. The acting captain might have been better leaving it to Danny Invincible who was slightly better positioned behind him.

On the hour mark, BBCU finally had a shot of note on target with Anucha's volley nestling into the gloves of Watthanapong.

Army brought on Tatree and Lindemann in the 63rd minute and it briefly gave the away side more potency on their home turf.

With two minutes left, Invincible could have won it in regulation time, but he couldn't get a strong enough touch to finish off a long ball from the right.

In the 105th minute, the winning goal finally arrived when a corner from the right bounced through to Lindemann who neatly controlled on his chest before his left foot shot crashed into the back of the net.

Overall it was a forgettable contest, but from Army's point of view they'll be glad to have made it to the next round. Without their top players, BBCU showed that they don't have quality in depth and making it out of Division 1 could become a struggle if they sustain injuries.
