AFC Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson believes he is ahead of schedule following his devastating knee injury.

The Cherries striker has been ruled out for the remainder of the season with an ACL injury.

The 24 year old former England Under 21’s international, ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in training.

Scans revealed that he will be sidelined for at least six months.

He underwent surgery in February.

In September 2015, Wilson suffered the same injury to his right knee in a match against Stoke City, which also ruled him out for a little over six months.

He returned to play six times during the final stages of the 2015/16 campaign, but failed to score until September this season.

Wilson told

‘I’m six weeks post-op now and I feel like I’m ahead of where I was last time in terms of moving and gym work – it’s probably down to having the experience of the injury before.

‘My head’s in a good place and I think my injury recovery’s going well.

‘It’s easier going through it a second time because out of that bad situation you’ve got that experience of how to get through it how to get back fit and string again.

‘I feel like when I returned last time I wasn’t back to my best at all for a while so this time there have been things I’ve changed.’

‘Saw callum Wilson walking to the car park after the Swansea game. Looked to be moving very well , I was expecting him to be struggling given it only happened a few weeks ago. Hopefully this is a good sign.Join the conversation here.
