'Signings would boost side' - Wilson

5 August 2013

City striker Callum Wilson hopes to see some new signings come to the club after loss at Crawley Town

Coventry City striker Callum Wilson hopes to see some new additions in the squad after the opening day loss against Crawley Town.

The Coventry-born forward started the game at the Broadfield Stadium and scored early in the second half to get the Sky Blues back into the game.

The 21-year old signed a new one-year deal with the club in July and Wilson is hoping he can continue to start in Steven Pressley's side.

Wilson said: "After working so hard during the summer, everybody wants to start the first game of the season.

"I was lucky enough to get picked for the team and even though the result isn't great, for me to get on the score-sheet early on in the season can only be a good thing.

"To be fair, I had a couple of chances and on another day, I would have scored two or three. That is something I can work on but for a striker, to get that first goal of the season out of the way, it is huge.

"To get back into the game and concede straight away was so disappointing. We have to move on though and look forward to Tuesday's game."

City travel to Leyton Orient tomorrow in the Capital One Cup, looking for their first win of the season and a potential cup-run.

The Sky Blues' cup-runs last season took the side to Premier League sides Arsenal and Tottenham. Wilson admits he would like to see some new additions come into the club and add more goals to his tally.

He added: "This is a young squad and, at the minute, we are quite short on experience. The young players, like myself, bring a lot of energy to the side and when you mix with the senior players, it works well.

"Obviously, when we come out of the transfer embargo, we can get a few more additions in which would be great for the side. 

"Hopefully, I have done enough to start on against Leyton Orient. It will be a difficult match but hopefully we can learn from the loss against Crawley and push on.

"I can only aim to keep scoring goals and it was a great feeling to score against Crawley as the fans behind the goal went wild, and their support was great throughout the match."
