"Hope 2013 keeps being good to me"

12 March 2013

City striker Callum Wilson over the moon after coming off the bench to spark City comeback

Coventry City striker Callum Wilson says he hopes 2013 can keep being good to him after he netted his first senior goal for the club in the 2-2 home draw with Colchester.

The 21-year-old came off the bench to spark a resurgence for the Sky Blues who overcame a two-goal deficit to snatch a point with his strike and a late free-kick from Carl Baker.

The stalemate protects manager Steven Pressley's undefeated start to management with City and Wilson said he felt the Sky Blues deserved more from the game than they ended up with.

"I was over the moon to get off the bench and onto the pitch to be honest so to score as well was brilliant," he said.

"I remember getting the ball at my feet and to be fair I don't remember much after that.

"I think if it would have been our day Cody's (McDonald) chances would have gone in, it would have been a different game and we would have got threee points because we deserved it the way we dominated."

Wilson now hopes getting his goal account off the mark will be the beginning of many more to come as he battles for opportunities amongst the club's other in-form strikers.

"Opportunities have been lacking for me a bit because Leon Clarke has been scoring and Cody has come back after being in good form infront of goal on loan so I just want to take my chances when they come.

"I want to keep working hard to get a few more of those opportunities and hopeful tonight's goal can be the first of many.

"It's been a difficult seeason for me being out so long through injury. I was out between June and December so 2013 has been a good year to me so far with my coming back and now getting my first goal. Hopefully that can carry on."
