Jordan Zemura scored a brace as Bournemouth completed one of the emphatic football results of the weekend. They maintained an unbeaten start to the Championship season with a 3-0 win over Barnsley. Zemura has gone 11 appearances for the club without scoring but tapped in his own effort for the opener. The Zimbabwean international then capped off his performance with a brilliant finish in the 83rd minute.
Dominic Solanke scored a goal between the two scored by Zemura to take Bournemouth up to fifth in the table. West Brom and QPR remain the only two other teams to remain unbeaten in the Championship.
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.”
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.”
