Pitman: Back at Bournemouth

New loan signing Brett Pitman admits he has been surprised by the standard and depth of the Bournemouth first-team squad.

Pitman returned to Dean Court on loan from Bristol City last week for his second spell with the club, having played over 100 games for the Cherries in a previous five-year period.

Having snatched a stoppage-time equaliser for Eddie Howe's side on his debut on Saturday, Pitman has been impressed with his new team-mates' ability.

He told BBC Radio Solent: "I knew they were good players, but they've surprised me how good they are.

"I've only trained with them Thursday and a little bit on Friday and I've seen them play Tuesday and Saturday.

"The quality is very, very high and I did not expect it to be that high. They have surprised me."
