PITMAN’S FITNESS WARNING
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.”
