Howe: Best yet to come from Pitman

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe believes that striker Brett Pitman will continue to improve during the final few months of the season.

Pitman has been amongst the goals since his return from Championship side Bristol City.

During his two and a half year spell at Bristol City, he made 81 appearances (including 36 starts) scoring 20 goals, but only made 3 league appearances during the 2012/13 season and hadn't scored since March 2012.

In November 2012 Pitman became Eddie Howe's first signing since his own return to Dean Court the previous month. Pitman made the move initially on loan before making the deal permanent last month for a nominal of around 60,000 fee.

The striker, who recently turned 25, has scored nine goals in twelve League One appearances, despite sometimes playing a deeper role behind Cherries leading scorer Lewis Grabban.

Howe believes that the lack of regular first team football at Bristol City has also meant that Pitman will continue to improve during the final part of the season.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

"In pure finishing ability, he would be at the very top, If you had a chance in the box you wouldn`t want it to fall to anybody else.

"I still think there is a lot more to come from him. I still think there is a lot of improvement in him because of the lack of football he has had.

"Hopefully, we are going to see the best of Brett between now and the end of the season.
