Ryan Christie is feeling validated for his decision to join Bournemouth.
The Cherries are four points ahead of third-placed Huddersfield Town with two games in hand.
When asked what it would be like to play in the top-flight, Christie told the Daily Echo: "I've made it no secret, that's why I wanted to join the club in the first place.
"The manager and the powers above said to me they wanted to give a serious promotion push this year. I really wanted to be part of that.
"This is exactly why I joined – to be in this situation. The run-in and really testing ourselves and hopefully getting over the line."
He added: "The boys are hungry. Everyone has got the same goal, everyone is pushing towards that goal.
"You can see in training, day-in, day-out, everyone is pushing each other.
"That comes from the manager and the staff but from the boys as well.
"You put yourself right now - seven games to go, seven massive games and everyone pushing towards that goal.
"Everybody is desperate to bring success to this football club, do it for each other and do it for themselves."
