AFC Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson believes that if he can hit his goal targets then the Cherries will be in the thick of a promotion chase.

The Cherries head into this (Friday) evenings match against Watford live on Sky Sports, top of the Championship table.

It’s been a fast rise for the 22 year old who came through the youth team ranks at Coventry City and went on to score 21 goals in 37 appearances during the 2013/14 season.

He was a target for a number of Championship clubs during the summer of 2014, with Norwich City and AFC Bournemouth agreeing a transfer fee with Coventry.

After speaking to both clubs Wilson agreed a four year contract with AFC Bournemouth on 4th July 2014.

He hit the ground running scoring on his debut and has gone on to score 15 goals in 31 appearances so far this season and won a call up to the England Under 21 squad.

Wilson told BBC Radio Solent

‘…The club’s never been in this position before, I’ve never been in this position before, A season is a long-term thing. There’s no point doing it for half a season and then falling away…’

‘…I’m thankful I made the decision to come here and we’re in the position to go for promotion, What a turnaround it would be to come from League One to the Premier League in the space of a season.

‘It’s a team game and I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself. But if I can achieve my targets, then that can help us get promotion. There’s no reason we can’t make it.’
