Carabao, Thailand’s second most popular energy drink (according to Wikipedia), and the latest sponsors of the League Cup…

Birmingham let a 1-0 half-time lead slip, a lead which could have been two were it not for a specatuclar goal line clearance from Tyrone Mings. But Bournemouth’s had first half chances too, Thomas Kuszczak being forced into action on a number of occasions…

Into the second half though, and the extra class told…

Newcastle loanee Adam Armstrong started for Bolton. New signing Isaac Vassell made his debut for Birmingham, coming off the bench in the second half…
