Barnsley were beaten 3-0 at AFC Bournemouth in their first game after the international break.
The hosts took the lead in the ninth minute then doubled it seconds after the interval, due to a Brad Collins error, before scoring again late on.
It was a poor performance from the Reds, who did not create a chance throughout the game while they were regularly cut open at the other end.
Josh Benson did not travel to the game so Callum Styles started in the middle with Ben Williams at left wing-back. Jasper Moon came in for the suspended Liam Kitching.
On the bench were new signings Aaron Leya Iseka, Claudio Gomes and Will Hondermarck – the former Norwich City youngster who joined as a free agent for the under 23s the previous day.
The Reds made a bright start but it was the hosts who scored with their first venture forward as they opened their visitors up easily with a fine passing move.
David Brooks burst down the right wing, swapped passes with Dominik Solanke and found Jaiden Anthony who slipped in Jordan Zemura. The left-back saw his first close-range effort blocked by Toby Sibbick but fired into the net on the rebound.
Brooks was then found unmarked on the right of the box by Jefferson Lerma but fired wide of the bottom right corner.
After a ten-minute spell of total home dominance, in which the Reds had to defend almost constantly, the game then became much more scrappy with a series of injuries and yellow cards.
Williams had to go off due to an injury sustained by a tackle from Phil Billing, who earned a yellow card, with Gomes making his professional debut and Styles moving from central midfield to left wing-back. Lloyd Kelly was also booked for a foul on Dominik Frieser who he accused of diving then shouted and pointed in the Austrian's face.
The Cherries had another good spell right at the end of the first half. Lerma thought he had made it 2-0 when he tapped in the 44th minute but it was ruled offside after Philip Billing headed an Anthony free-kick across goal. Solanke was then denied from close range by Collins after Anthony's low left-wing cross was not cut out by Michal Helik.
The Reds made a change at half-time, with Iseka coming on for his debut to replace Clarke Oduor. But they conceded within 45 seconds as Collins inexplicably spilled Billing's low left-wing cross and Solanke tapped in.
From then on, it was a case of how many the hosts would score.
Collins then dived to his left to save easily from Lerma then made a better stop from Anthony, with both efforts coming from outside the box.
Solanke fired off-target from a tight angle on the left of the box after the excellent Anthony slipped him in following one of several crossfield passes which the Reds struggled to deal with.
Collins made a fine save from home debutant Ryan Christie after the Reds lost the ball just outside their box. But it was 3-0 seconds later as, after Gomes lost the ball in his half, the ball was worked to Zemura who was allowed to sprint 30 yards into the Barnsley box and beat Collins one-on-one from the left.
