The November signing from Bristol City curled home his 19th of the campaign late on to beat Carlisle and spark wild celebrations on the south coast.

"It is a tough league and there are some big clubs in there," he told the Daily Echo. "The majority of the squads are full of quality players and there is a lot of experience.

Pitman and Bournemouth head to Tranmere on Saturday knowing three points will see them crowned champions.
