PIT­MAN’S FIT­NESS WARN­ING

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

BRETT PIT­MAN has no doubts he can cut it in the Cham­pi­onship, but he warned some of his Bournemouth team­mates they can’t let their guard slip.

Pit­man spent two and a half years with Bris­tol City and notched 20 goals in 77 ap­pear­ances, al­though 44 of those came from the bench.

And af­ter re­join­ing the Cher­ries in Jan­uary and help­ing them back into the sec­ond tier, he’s keen to pass on some of his ex­pe­ri­ence.

“My goals-to-game ra­tio at Bris­tol City was pretty strong and I’m sure I can score goals here,” he said.

“You can prob­a­bly get away with play­ing when you are less than fully fit in League One but, in the Cham­pi­onship, you def­i­nitely can’t. Ev­ery­one has to be 100 per cent oth­er­wise you get found out pretty quickly.”
