Brett Pitman's late strike rescues point against Bury
Brett Pitman's late strike rescued a point for AFC Bournemouth against Bury as the striker returned to action for the Cherries.
The substitute was making his first appearance since returning to the Dorset side on loan after two years at Bristol City.
The Cherries had to come from behind twice to maintain their unbeaten record with a 2-2 draw at Gigg Lane.
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe said: "I felt we should have won the game because we had enough chances. I'm disappointed with the two goals we conceded.
