Brett Pitman: In red-hot form

The 24-year-old striker, who rejoined the Cherries from Bristol City in January, scored five goals in six appearances to help Eddie Howe's side revive their claim for an automatic promotion place.

Three of Pitman's goals came in crucial 1-0 away wins at Stevenage, Oldham and Colchester.

"It's lovely to win the award and it means I've been doing something right," Pitman told Hot Radio.

"More importantly it means the team has been winning, so obviously it goes hand in hand and it's been a good run of form for myself and the team.

"Sometimes when you're on a good scoring run you get a little bit more luck - things fall to you and that's how it has worked out."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
