JASON Tindall heaped praise on debutant Jordan Zemura's display against Crystal Palace, insisting: "I thought he was excellent."

Zemura, 20, lined up at left-wing-back for Cherries in their Carabao Cup second-round tie with the Eagles on Tuesday evening.

And the London-born ace, who also holds Zimbabwean citizenship, impressed throughout the goalless draw.

Zemura, who joined Cherries' academy from Charlton Athletic last year, also netted from the penalty spot in the 11-10 shootout success, slotting into the bottom corner as the 10th taker for the hosts.

Asked for his assessment of the youngster's debut, as well as that of Nnamdi Ofoborh who also made his Cherries bow, boss Tindall told the Daily Echo: "I thought he was excellent, JZ. As was Nnamdi who has come in.

"It was great see JZ, Nnamdi, Jack Simpson and Sam Surridge start, (players) who have come through the youth set-up, which is really promising for the kids coming through for the future.

"I felt all those players conducted themselves very well and delivered a really good performance."
