SCOTT Parker hailed Jordan Zemura's man-of-the-match display against Barnsley as a "fine performance", before admitting he felt the full-back's goals target had been "ambitious".

Zemura netted his first goals in professional football with a brilliant brace from full-back, either side of a Dominic Solanke strike, as Cherries cruised to a 3-0 victory over the Tykes.

Speaking in an interview with the club's programme ahead of the Barnsley clash, Zemura said: "If I can keep my place, I genuinely think I can get five assists and three goals by the middle of the season."

Asked about the 21-year-old's goals target, Parker said: "Yeah I saw that in the notes to be fair.

"I thought it was ambitious, but he’s right on track now, isn’t he!?

"The way we play and what we ask of our full-backs, I definitely fully expect him to be assisting and scoring. Probably more assisting.

"But certainly what I ask of our full-backs, definitely that will be there. He’s banged two in today, so that’s perfect."

Reflecting on Zemura's performance as a whole, Parker added: "He’s been excellent to be fair since he’s come in and got the shirt.

"Today was a fine performance from him. I think we all realise and you guys watching it can see, he’s an attack-minded full-back.

"He gets you up the pitch. He’s got a lovely forward drive about him. I think defensively he’s improving and did very well again today.

"He was part of a back four that obviously got a clean sheet, so I was very pleased for him.

"Because he was someone who, from the minute I walked in here has shown me he wants the shirt.

"Shown me he wants to improve, work hard and has earned the right to get his opportunity and now he is relishing that really."
