Coventry City striker Callum Wilson has thanked his team-mates after scoring a brace in the 2-1 win over Crewe Alexandra. 

The City striker hit sixth and seventh goals in as many games and took his tally to 22 goals for the season in all competitions with goals in each half to twice give the Sky Blues the lead after Mark Ellis equalised for the hosts. 

The Sky Blues rise to 13th in the League One table with the win and are now eight points away from the relegation zone.

Whilst delighted to score a brace, Wilson was quick to acknowledge the team performance after the final whistle.

The 21-year old: "It was a great win for us as we really had to fight it out and make sure we were at our best for the win.

"We've worked a lot in training on the system we played so it was great to see it work out so well. It might not be pretty but if you're getting the results, that's all that matters.

"Everyone worked really hard and I thought the new loan signings did well again today. There were periods in the game when they were on top of us and the experience really helped.

"There has been times where my goals hasn't meant anything because we've lost but I'm happy that my goals have resulted in three points today."

The win sees City record back-to-back victories going into Tuesday's game against Bradford City at Sixfields.

Wilson believes City have to keep pushing for results and pull away even further from the League One drop-zone.

He added: "It's always at the back of my mind. The team can't just forget about it really as we have to keep going now.

"We've got two really good wins but we need to follow it up with another one to make sure we continue to pull away from it.

"If we didn't have the ten point deduction, then we'd have a great chance of the play-offs this season which shows how good we are.

"I think that bodes really well for next season because the team has grown together over the course of the season."
