'Difficult result to take' - Wilson

Coventry City striker Callum Wilson believes the Sky Blues have to take the positives from the 3-3 draw at Bradford City.

In an entertaining fixture at Valley Parade, City raced into a two-goal lead inside the first ten minutes.

Centre-back Andy Webster tucked home after Bradford goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin spilled the ball inside the first minute of the game and Leon Clarke followed up Callum Wilson's effort to double City's lead.

Nahki Wells notched a brace to get the Bantams level but Wilson found the net towards the end of the first half with a fantastic finish to put City ahead at the break.

City looked like they'd go home with all three points but Wells completed his hat-trick with a last minute penalty to break City hearts.

Wilson's dejection at the final whistle was clear, but he wants to see City take the positives on-board.

The Coventry-born striker said: "It is a difficult one to take as I think we deserved the win. It is always tough to take a last minute equaliser as it feels like a loss.

"We shouldn't have let them back into the game after a really good start but that is something we have to learn from. The sort of football they play was difficult for us.

"I am pretty sure our defenders had their crash helmets on, there was that many long balls. We like to get it down and play so it was a test for us to cope with that approach.

"We have to look at the positives as we are still unbeaten. I can't remember the last time we lost so we have to recover from today and re-focus for the next match."

As City scored three goals at Valley Parade, the Sky Blues are now League One's top-scorers with 37 goals scored in the League this season.

Despite scoring his 13th goal of the campaign, Wilson was disappointed not to score more against the Bantams.

He added: "We had plenty of chances in the game and I had a good chance to put the game to bed in the second half.

"On another day, I score that chance and we probably go on to win the game. I am happy to score today, and also happy for Leon (Clarke) who added to his goal tally.

"It was good to score but I am always looking to improve so I will always come off the pitch thinking I should have done more.

"That is the way to make sure you become a better player. I will rarely look at the positives, but look to work on the negatives."
