    Highlights of the Sky Bet Championship game between Bournemouth and Barnsley.

    Jordan Zemura netted his first two professional goals as Bournemouth maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a 3-0 victory over Barnsley.

    Left-back Zemura, on his 12th first-team appearance, rebounded his own effort to give the Cherries an early lead before the Zimbabwe international scored the third with an excellent run and finish in the 83rd minute

    The goals sandwiched Dominic Solanke's fourth Sky Bet Championship goal of the season to send Bournemouth up to fifth, with table-toppers West Brom and QPR the only other sides yet to lose.

    The Cherries needed just eight minutes to open the scoring as Zemura finished off a scintillating counter-attack led by David Brooks.

    The 21-year-old full-back needed two attempts to slot past Brad Collins after latching on to a pass from Jaidon Anthony.

    Zemura almost turned provider five minutes later, but Philip Billing could not poke in on the stretch before Brooks was denied by Ben Williams.

    Brooks went close again in the 17th minute but dragged his effort wide having found space at the back post.

    Referee James Linington endured an embarrassing moment midway through the first half when he booked Bournemouth debutant Gary Cahill for a foul committed by Lloyd Kelly - although he corrected himself quickly.

    The hosts ended a dominant first half strongly. First, Jefferson Lerma bundled the ball home after a free-kick had been nodded across goal by Billing, only to see the flag raised for offside.

    And in stoppage time, Solanke squandered a one-on-one with Collins as he fired straight at the keeper from six yards.

    Solanke made up for the missed opportunity barely a minute after the interval as he capitalised on a Collins howler to notch for the fifth time this season in all competitions.

    Midfielder Billing fired a low ball into the box seemingly too close to the keeper, only for a fumble to offer former Liverpool striker Solanke an unmissable opportunity.

    Collins partially atoned six minutes later when Lerma curled straight at him from outside the box.

    The shot-stopper palmed away a low Anthony finish before a pinball period in the Tykes' box ended when Ben Pearson had a shot deflected over the crossbar.

    At times in the second half Bournemouth threatened to run riot; Billing smashed into the side-netting and then Solanke failed to make contact when two yards from the line.

    More intricate passing and overlapping runs found Adam Smith open on the outside, but his thumping strike was tipped over by Collins.

    Deadline-day signing Ryan Christie was denied, but moments later Zemura strolled through the Barnsley defence to bag his second with a fine clipped finish.

    It capped a one-sided match which saw Barnsley chalk up two off-target attempts with only 38 per cent possession.

    What the managers said...

    Bournemouth's Scott Parker: "I'm really pleased with that performance and with all facets of our game. We kept a clean sheet and for the second game in a row stopped the other team from getting a shot on target. We were worthy of more goals. We had some massive opportunities and if we had put the finishing on a couple of moves then it would have been a delightful score.

    "But trying to get out of this division comes from one thing and that is looking back tomorrow morning and sitting in front of a screen and learning where we can grow and get better. I know for sure that if that's our outlook we will be successful."

    Barnsley's Markus Schopp: "I am really disappointed because I thought we started well, but our turnover and transition moments weren't good enough today against a really good team. We didn't have the power to come back after the second goal and to be honest, three goals is a good result for us. It is disappointing because we didn't have to lose today. It is all about the attitude we had at the beginning - when we were really aggressive - but they started playing really well after the first goal.

    "We were too immature and kept trying to find the nice solutions and they aren't good enough against a team like Bournemouth. They know how to play in possession and also when they lose the ball. When we are lazy and take too much time then it isn't good enough. To get to the next level we have to look to these teams."
