BRETT Pitman's hat-trick in this 3-1 win finished off a productive week for Cherries.

Six points from six planted Eddie Howe's side firmly in the League One play-off picture after the defeat against Walsall had left some questioning whether that was the best Cherries could hope for. Not on this form.

A slight wobble 15 minutes from time, when Ryan Colclough made it 2-1, was also little to worry about as Pitman's two penalties, one in each half, and goal on 67 minutes was more than enough to see off Crewe.

Howe made two changes from the side that beat Hartlepool on Tuesday night. Charlie Daniels missed out with a foot injury, with Steve Cook coming into central defence and Dan Seaborne switching to left-back.

Pitman returned to the starting line-up in place of Richard Hughes as Howe opted for a 4-4-2 set-up with Cherries back in home soil.

The home side started brightly, with Harry Arter blazing over when well placed inside the 18-yard box following Pitman's corner.

And it was the Channel Islander who put Cherries in front from the spot inside the opening 10 minutes after Marc Pugh's clever turn had drawn a foul from Adam Dugdale.

Just two minutes later, Cherries should arguably have had another penalty after Pugh went to ground again, this time under a challenge from Luke Murphy. Referee Iain Williamson waved it away.

Cherries continued to push, with Josh McQuoid's header going close thanks to Simon Francis's cross from the right - so nearly yet another assist for the right-back.

Cherries had further chances, too, Pitman narrowly missing the target with a header on 32 minutes after some intricate passing and movement between Lewis Grabban and Francis and a dipping cross from McQuoid.

On the stroke of half-time, Grabban could have made it 2-0. The striker latched on to Eunan O'Kane's precise through ball but, having rounded Crewe keeper Steve Phillips, placed his left-foot strike on the angle into the side netting.

McQuoid continued to impress after the break, but Pitman was unable steer his shot on target having been expertly played in by the midfielder.

At the other end, Max Clayton fired over the bar. Crewe were boasting plenty of the ball, but seemed unable to convert their possession into goal scoring opportunities.

Pitman climbed magnificently to get on the end of McQuoid's cross just after the hour but could only head directly into the hands of Phillips.

The absence of Daniels played into McQuoid's hands, with the majority of Cherries' best attacks coming from the right. He gave former Wessex League defender Jon Guthrie, on his full debut, a torrid time in the second half.

Still Cherries pushed and hurried. The crowd noise slowly built as they sensed the game was beginning to open up in favour of the hosts.

Phillips saved well at the near post from Grabban, but his parry from Arter's shot moments later fell to McQuoid, who crossed for Pitman to tap in his second of the afternoon.

It should have been 3-0 on 73 minutes when Phillips again parried, this time directly on to Arter's head from Francis's cross. Arter, though, almost surprised, could only nod the ball over the bar.

There was a sting in the tail, however. Mathias Pogba stormed into the box from the left channel unchallenged and substitute Colclough simply made sure his shot on target found the back of the net. 2-1 and game on.

Not for long, though.

Williamson pointed to the spot for a second time nine minutes from time after Abdul Osman had felled substitute Wes Fogden. Pitman stepped up and drilled the penalty right down the middle. Game on to game over in minutes.

Pitman's last hat-trick had been for Cherries against Peterborough in his final game before moving to Bristol City and he was replaced here by Richard Hughes just after his third. Howe would have wanted him to receive the ovation.

The result moved Cherries into fifth place in League One. They also became the division's highest scorers, bringing up their 50. Those are telling statistics.

Cherries: (4-4-2) Jalal; Francis, Cook, Elphick, Seaborne; McQuoid (Fogden, 80), Arter, O'Kane, Pugh; Grabban (Tubbs, 88), Pitman (Hughes, 83).

Another excellent result and along with the victory at Hartlepool in midweek was an ideal response to the poor display at Walsall.
Well done to Brett on his hat-trick and to the team for lifting the club up to fifth, our highest placing for a long time! The promotion push is most definitely back on!

I think our next 3 home games are against Pompey, Sheff Utd & Coventry, all of which will bring large travelling support. An extra 1,500- 2,000 seats could be needed to meet demand particulary now that we are steaming towards the summit. Great times ahead.

Tremendous 2nd half performance, GOOD chance went begging throughout the game, I made it we could atleast of had EIGHT!! Josh for me had an outstanding 2nd half, Eunan is such an inspiration. Arter had his customary booking and 1st half was giving the ball away far too easily. But a highly entertaining game with everything coming right in the end. Franchise will be a tough game, but we should fear no one playing like the 2nd half.

Agree on every point, especially about Josh, he was outstanding today. The only downside if it can be classed as that is how on earth we only scored three. Like you've said we could easily have had eight.

I think the man in question could make you rich. Read his moaning drivel, sorry predictions, on here and then simply visit the bookies and place a tenner on the exact opposite. You woul be quids in every week. How can one man get it so wrong so often? As long as he keeps predicting our downfall we should have a great finish to the season.

It cost me £11 to go to todays game with my son, great value. Would be good if prices like this were more frequent as would go every game. Normally it costs me £30 every time. That said great result and starting to feel like good old days of 86/87. The reds are goin up!

Thing with shminto is, if he keeps posting the same crap every week, by the law of averages sooner or later he will get one right. And by god, he will certainly be on here letting us know when/if that happens.

Ease off on the poor guy.

I recall at some point or other that his dad attends home matches.

I have an idea how some of the posting from you know who are constructed.

Dad most likely is not computer savvy so dad asks son to write up comments - son has no idea what dad is on about so he makes ups some far fetched predictions and slaps it on the Echo web page.

Now a prediction of my own>

If
Jalal; Francis, Cook, Elphick, Seaborne; McQuoid Fogden, Arter, O'Kane, Pugh; Grabban Tubbs, Pitman

are missing next Saturday I will predict that it will be very dodgy and all we can hope for is a draw!!!!!!!! No I am not mad just had couple glasses of wine thats all!!

After the first 15 minutes I thought Crewe out passed us & kept possession as good as anyone this year, but thankfully could not get past our resolute back four, including Seabourne covering at F B.

Thankfully Eddie and Jason got them going in the second half and only saw one winner.

our second unbeaten run is now well underway. 50 goals - that's entertainment!

Rather an odd game, I thought that Crewe edged the first half, they worked hard to close us down and passed well and had pace - but we could and should have been been 3 up at the interval, we had the chances! As happens so often the Cherries raised the tempo in the second half. creating a hatfull of chances. We will have to be more clinical in front of goal against MK Dons though, they will take any chances offered and will be full of confidence after todays giant killing. The ground capacity is supposed to be 9600 but looking round could only see the odd seat not filled, certainly not a thousand..

Well done you mighty Cherries and well played Josh Mcqoid, his 2nd half performance was a great improvement on recent form. It was interesting that a lot more attack went up the right wing with Charlie Daniels out. Only negative for me was it would have been good for Mattie Tubbs to have had 10 more minutes than as he really does his best with what little game time he has and as always I would like to see Donal on.


Bring on MK Dogs next week, even persuaded my wife to go!!! More goals, more points please Cherries!!!

Good to go above the so called mighty Blades,so ok they were getting thumped at Reading in the cup but they were allegedly the team to watch fly into the championship this season..things seem to be ticking along nicely for us and I'm delighted but I can't think about championship football yet.. Keep pushing for the top two and then I can plan glorious trips to Birmingham, Derby, Forest, maybe even dirty Leeds although I have little desire to contribute to their coffers. Sorry got a little side tracked

Another great win today, starting to look like a play-off position is ours.
Thats the whole point.

We're not going there to support a franchise - we're going to show a franchise how a real football club is supported.

Unless you're a MK fan, we're all there to support AFCB. And there's gonna be a lot of us !!

Completely agree here. AFCB need our support regardless of the politics surrounding Franchise. Times are tough for many of us, but IF it's at all possible get to as MANY games home and away as you can. The year Arry took us up as Champions I was lucky enough to be able to get to 23 of the last 26 games and those times will always be there in the memory. Times like this are rare for us, so grab them while you can, you only live once!!! UTCIAD

Fantastic result and wish I was there. Players responding well to EH's instruction and deserve the praise heaped on them by him.

The man is absolute class and playing to make up for wasted opportunities under his predecessors does not seem to phase him.

Who could ever forget the Swindon & Fulham away matches back in 87 such terrific support.
Need to mobilise the barmy army up to MK next saturday and give the boys our backing. We can turn this into a home game atmosphere which could make all the difference.

Not quite correct there Snookerman.
Sitting is usually expressed in the present tense. As it was yesterday, sat would probably be more correct.
However, if you want to be precise, it would be more correct to say "I was seated".
