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.

  • 3:02pm
    Jasper Moon is on the left of the back three with Sibbick on the right and Helik in the middle
  • 3:04pm
    Already Barnsley are pressing their hosts into errors as they try to play out from the back
  • 3:04pm
    Oduor just pinched the ball on the left and drove into the box but went down under a challenge the referee deemed fair
  • 3:06pm
    It's very funny down here in Dorset at the moment and the Reds have made a bright start
  • 3:07pm
    'Is this a library?' sing the away fans but the home supporters are making some noise with a drum behind one goal
  • 3:08pm
    6 Good work by Barnsley on the left. Palmer exchanges passes with Woodrow on the side of the box and gets to the byline but shanks a cross over the bar. His captain is furious and wanted the ball to be played back to him
  • 3:09pm
    So far this is reminiscent of the start Barnsley made here last year when they eventually took an early lead through Michal Helik. They are pressing their hosts and doing more of the attacking at the moment
  • 3:09pm
    Jordan Zemura puts Bournemouth in front in the eighth minute
  • 3:10pm
    The hosts net with their first attack and its a good team goal
  • 3:12pm
    A good move saw David Brooks break down the right, swap passes with Solanke then Anthony plays in Zemura on the left. His shot is blocked by Sibbick but he fires in the rebound from close range
  • 3:14pm
    13 Bournemouth looking pretty dangerous now. Brooks brings down a cross field ball, swaps passes with Lerma and has a shot blocked. Seconds later, Ben Williams has to clear Zemura's low left wing cross
  • 3:15pm
    14 Jaiden Anthony's cross is headed clear by Helik. All the hosts at the moment
  • 3:19pm
    18 The Reds are carved open again. Jefferson Lerma crosses on the left of the box to Brooks who is completely unmarked on the right but, by the time he has chested the ball down, he is under pressure and can only fire wide from about 12 yards
  • 3:21pm
    Bournemouth have dominated the last ten minutes but it's only 1-0 and Barnsley just need to hang in there
  • 3:25pm
    Dominic Solanke is the first man in the book after taking out Ben Williams who looks in some pain.
  • 3:26pm
    Williams will carry on but that looked like a painful blow to the foot or ankle
  • 3:27pm
    Ben Williams still struggling here. He may have to come off
  • 3:28pm
    Bournemouth's David Brooks is also down injured
  • 3:29pm
    Gomes coming on for his debut
  • 3:29pm
    Callum Styles will go to left wing back
  • 3:30pm
    That's a real shame for Williams, who missed all of last season with a knee problem. This one looked like it was lower down his leg but we'll find out in due course
  • 3:33pm
    The game has settled down a bit after that period of home dominance, including the goal. The Reds will look for a strong finish to the half but the Cherries have been very threatening when they've got the ball forward
  • 3:34pm
    33 A disappointing moment for Oduor. Styles' lofted pass puts him in space on the left of the box but he takes a heavy touch and the hosts clear. That was a decent chance to pick out a team mate in the box
  • 3:36pm
    Frieser down after a challenge by Lloyd Kelly. The home man then puts his fingers in the Austrian's face
  • 3:37pm
    Lloyd Kelly booked for that foul on Frieser. The referee initially booked Gary Cahill by accident
  • 3:39pm
    It looked like both Kelly and Frieser were going to launch into a big tackle on half way but Frieser pulled out and got slightly caught then went down. Kelly thought he had dived so went over and shouted and pointed in his face which infuriated the Austrian
  • 3:40pm
    This game has now turned into a series of stoppages, with injuries and yellow cards. That will slightly suit Barnsley compared to all the defending they had to do earlier. But they need to find a way to threaten the hosts
  • 3:41pm
    The away end still pretty noisy. They know their team are still in this
  • 3:44pm
    Two minutes left in this half. Barnsley are getting on the ball a lot more now. But they still haven't created a chance in this game
  • 3:45pm
    44 Bournemouth have a goal ruled out for offside
  • 3:46pm
    Lerma taps in but the flag is up after Billing headed an Anthony free-kick across goal
  • 3:46pm
    Four added minutes
  • 3:48pm
    45+1 Big chance for 2-0. An Anthony cross from the left is not cut out by Helik and Solanke should score from five yards out but Collins makes
  • 3:49pm
    Another period of Bournemouth dominance here as they win a second corner is quick succession
  • 3:50pm
    45+4 Anthony's corner is cleared
  • 3:51pm
    HALF-TIME: Bournemouth 1, Barnsley 0. The hosts scored early and have missed a couple of other decent chances while also having a goal ruled out for offside. The Reds, who had Ben Williams limp off injured, are yet to create a chance but will feel they are still in this game at 1-0
  • 4:04pm
    Barnsley players back on the pitch
  • 4:06pm
  • 4:06pm
    Dominic Solanke makes it 2-0 45 seconds after the break
  • 4:07pm
    It's a horrible moment for Brad Collins. He should gather Billing's cross but it wriggles out of his grasp and Solanke taps in
  • 4:08pm
    Collins has been good so far this season but that's his first real error
  • 4:09pm
    A disastrous start to the second half for the Reds and they face a real uphill battle to get anything out of this game now
  • 4:10pm
    They were all set up to go again at just 1-0 down and Iseka brought on to add a different threat, then they go further behind 45 seconds into the second half due to a silly error
  • 4:12pm
    52 Chance for Lerma. The ball rolls to him about 22 yards out after Helik tackles a home man. But his shot is easily saved by Collins diving to his left
  • 4:16pm
    The Reds fans still making plenty of noise. But they will know that second goal has hugely dented their chances of even one point today
  • 4:17pm
    A nice turn by Gomes, who is dropping deep to pick the ball up, but he overhits a long ball to Woodrow
  • 4:18pm
    Barnsley have played a bit better in this half, since the horrible second goal obviously, with Iseka looking lively on the left of the front three. He cross for Woodrow who knees the ball up in the air but the flag goes up
  • 4:24pm
    64 Another chance for hosts. Collins dives full length to his length to deny Anthony's shot from the edge of the box. Bournemouth have the ball in the away area for about 15 seconds before winning a corner which is cleared
  • 4:28pm
    67 Good move by Bournemouth, who are having lots of joy with cross field passes which are stretching their visitors. One falls to the excellent Anthony who slips in Solanke but his shot from a tight angle on the left is wide
  • 4:30pm
    Bournemouth bring off David Brooks, with Ryan Christie coming on for his debut
  • 4:32pm
    We're into the 72nd minute and Barnsley are yet to have a shot in this game
  • 4:34pm
    74 This has been a very tough day for Brad Collins. He kicks the ball straight to Ryan Christie deep in the Barnsley half then, after Bournemouth play the ball to the right, touches over a cross by Smith
  • 4:35pm
    Aapo Halme is coming on
  • 4:37pm
    Halme on for Sibbick
  • 4:39pm
    Probably the biggest positive for Barnsley today on the pitch has been their two debutants. Without being spectacular, Iseka and Gomes have shown some good signs since coming off the bench. Gomes looks tidy and confident in the middle while Iseka has held the ball up a few times and played some decent passes
  • 4:41pm
    Bournemouth swap Jaidon Anthony, who has been excellent, for Morgan Rogers
  • 4:42pm
    Jordan Zemura gets his second of the game
  • 4:44pm
    The left-back is allowed to sprint about 30 yards down Barnsley's right into the box before beating Collins. That comes after a really sloppy spell in which the Reds could not clear the ball
  • 4:48pm
    This has been a harrowing afternoon for the Reds. That last goal prompted an exodus from the away end and you can't really blame them. Those who remain have just sung 'we're going to win 4-3'
  • 4:50pm
    Five added minutes
  • 4:56pm
    Jefferson Lerma and Jasper Moon both booked after a bit of pushing and shoving
  • 4:57pm
    FULL-TIME: Bournemouth 3, Barnsley 0. A tough afternoon for the Reds who did not have a shot on target or create a chance.
