Brett Pitman scored a dramatic injury-time equaliser on his Bournemouth return to earn a point at Bury.

The Shakers took the lead early on when Troy Hewitt headed home Matt Doherty's delivery, before Lewis Grabban equalised from close range.

David Worrall put the hosts ahead again when keeper David James could only parry a shot back to the midfielder.

But Pitman, who re-joined the Cherries this week, curled home as his side stay unbeaten since Eddie Howe's return.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told BBC Radio Solent:

"After a poor first half from us, we really got to grips with it in the second half and we had enough chances to have won the game comfortably.

"I can only praise the lads' character again because the unbeaten run goes on.

"We want to achieve something this year and I think we've got a group of players who are capable of doing that."
