AFC Bournemouth striker Brett Pitman scored his fourth and fifth goals against Crewe this season to fire the Cherries to the top of League One.
The former Cherries youth team graduate scored a hat-trick against Crewe in the first game between the two sides a few weeks ago and Pitman was in fine form in the away fixture, scoring a brace in the 2-1 victory.
The three points saw Eddie Howe’s side climb from fourth to first in the league table, the first time the team has been top of the table this season, but Pitman doesn’t believe the Cherries focus will change now they’ve completed their catch up mission from the relegation places that the side was in four months ago.
Pitman told BBC Radio Solent…
‘We’ve got characters in the team and a manager and backroom staff that will keep our feet on the ground,’
‘…It’ll be a new experience for us (being top), we’ve not experienced it before. But we want to stay there for sure.
‘Knowing Eddie (Howe), he will treat every game the same and with respect, and with the same detail he treats each match whether it’s against a team at the top or bottom…’
