Two goals from Brett Pitman sent AFC Bournemouth top of League One with a 2-1 win over Crewe Alexandra.

The Cherries have now won their last five games, and the former Bristol City striker grabbed his second goal, six minutes from time to seal another impressive three points for the Dorset club.

The 26-year-old netted a hat-trick against Crewe last month, as his impressive goal-scoring record continues after rejoining the Cherries.

Mathias Pogba hauled down Matt Richie in the penalty area, allowing Pitman to open his account in the first half from the spot.

Crewe had several chances to level, and finally equalised when Pogba headed past Shwan Jalal with eleven minutes left.

However, Pitman converted Steve Cook's cross to send Bournemouth top of the league - one point ahead of Doncaster who could only draw with MK Dons.
