AFC Bournemouth winger Matt Ritchie has admitted that he hasn't been performing to his own high standards in recent weeks.
The Cherries attacker returned to the first team fold in late November after missing out on the start of the Championship campaign and pre-season due to injury.
He returned in incredible form, winning regular man of the match awards and scoring five goals in his first seven appearances.
But since then Ritchie has failed to find the net and recently dropped to the bench for the home game against Leicester City.
However as a squad, Ritchie believes the Cherries are well placed to consolidate their position in the Championship this season.
Ritchie told the Daily Echo...
"As an attacking player, people look at the goals you score and create and in my first six or seven games back, my form was very good.
"Over the past four or five games I have probably been a little bit off it and not quite my usual self. My legs have felt tired but I have started to gain that bit of fitness I missed out on at the start of the season...'
'...If the team could establish itself in the Championship I think that would be a good season for us and we would have a good platform to reassess in the summer, As a club, I think we are heading in the right direction. There are some good things happening and we can certainly aim high this season.'
