'Surpassed my goal target' - Wilson

14 November 2013

City striker Callum Wilson wants to keep scoring despite surpassing his goal target for the season....

Coventry City striker Callum Wilson has revealed he has already surpassed his goal target for the season.

The Coventry-born forward has already scored 12 goals this season, making him the club's top-scorer ahead of strike partner Leon Clarke, who is on 11 goals.

Wilson is set to start against Bradford City at Valley Parade having already made 18 appearances for the club this season. 

The City striker has previously refused to reveal his goal target for the season, but said ahead of the game with the Bantams he has already passed his mark.

Wilson said: "I did set myself a target at the start of the season but I didn't want to tell anyone what the number was.

"I wasn't going to say what it was but I have passed it now. I backed myself to score 10 goals in pre-season.

"I told myself if I scored 10 goals, I'd be happy with that. That's why, when I did get to 10 goals, and it was on TV, it was really nice.

"When I celebrated that, I dedicated it to my family. Of course, I will keep going now. I have kept scoring after that so I might have to set myself another target."

Before the start of this season, Wilson had only made 14 appearances for the club in his five seasons at the Sky Blues.

Having became one of major threats in League One, Wilson believes opposition players are paying extra attention to him this season.

He added: "I just think when there is a 50/50 challenge there, the defenders do seem to be going in a bit harder. 

"They are obviously trying to knock me off my game and let me know they are there. It is different for me really but more of a challenge.

"I don't let it bother me. I just know, no matter what attention I get, I need to just keep doing what I'm doing and I know they'll try and stop me even more.

"I want to keep scoring goals and carry my form on. Hopefully, I can keep it up and press on for the club this season."
