JORDAN Zemura’s first goals in professional football sent Cherries on their way to a routine victory over Barnsley.

Dominic Solanke was also on target, either side of a brace from academy graduate Zemura, as the hosts eased to a 3-0 win.

In truth it could have been more for Scott Parker’s side, who took all three points from a home league game this season for the first time, preserving their unbeaten start to the Championship campaign in the process.

Parker made four changes to the side which drew at Hull City before the international break. Mark Travers, Philip Billing and Adam Smith all returned from illness, while Gary Cahill debuted at centre-back. Orjan Nyland, Emiliano Marcondes, Jack Stacey and Chris Mepham all dropped to the bench.

Deadline-day signings Ryan Christie and Jamal Lowe were among the substitutes, but there was no spot in the squad for captain Steve Cook or Irishman Gavin Kilkenny.

After a slow start, Cherries suddenly clicked into gear in the eighth minute.

Building up from the back, Smith combined with David Brooks. The Wales international glided infield, eventually working it out to Jaidon Anthony on the left. He slipped the ball through to fellow academy graduate Zemura, who saw his shot blocked, before guiding it in at the second attempt for his first goal for the senior side.

A second goal quickly followed. Barnsley were unable to contain Brooks, who combined with Jefferson Lerma before his right-footed effort was charged down.

Lerma then crossed for Brooks in acres of space minutes later, but he got his shot all wrong.

Barnsley’s afternoon went from bad to worse when left-back Ben Williams was forced off injured, following a heavy challenge by Philip Billing, which saw the Dane booked.

Cherries had the ball in the net again on the stroke of half-time. Anthony’s deep free-kick was headed back across goal by Billing. Solanke looked to get a touch in the centre, before Lerma turned it in. However, the flag was raised for offside.

But the hosts should have been 2-0 up going into the break. Anthony’s low cross was inch-perfect for Solanke, but his shot was saved by the legs of goalkeeper Brad Collins.

However, within seconds of the restart, Solanke did have his goal.

Billing’s cross from the left was spilled horribly by Collins, allowing the striker to pounce and turn home the loose ball, via the post.

Cherries had their tails up, breaking through the centre again with Lerma, but his shot from the edge of the box was held by Collins.

The Tykes just about survived midway through the half. Anthony’s initial shot was saved by a diving Collins, but the danger was far from over. A low cross from Brooks was just about scrambled away, before the ball came out for Ben Pearson. The former Barnsley loanee’s goalbound effort was blocked behind.

Parker turned to his bench with 20 minutes to play, handing a debut to former Celtic man Christie, who came on in place of Brooks. Morgan Rogers was also introduced for his Vitality Stadium bow.

But it was Zemura who stole the show. The 21-year-old broke forwards down the left, showed off his skills with a couple of stepovers before clipping the ball across goal into the bottom corner.

Lowe was then introduced for his Cherries debut for the closing minutes.

Barnsley, who like Cherries were beaten in the play-offs last season, were unable to seriously work Travers throughout the contest as the hosts closed out a comfortable win.
