'Results are unacceptable' - Wilson

23 March 2014

Callum Wilson wants to see the City side pick themselves up for Wednesday's game against Stevenage...

Coventry City striker Callum Wilson has revealed he believes his goals mean nothing without the result after the 3-1 loss against Brentford.

The City striker reached the 20-goal milestone to put the Sky Blues ahead after just five minutes and Alan Judge had a penalty saved by Joe Murphy six minutes later.

Two goals in four minutes from Clayton Donaldson and Marcello Trotta turned the game on its head for the home side before Alan McCormack added a third for Brentford midway through the second half.

The City striker became the first Sky Blues striker to score in five consecutive games since Micky Quinn in 1992 with his early strike but Wilson's main focus is City's league position.

Wilson said: "It's always nice to score and especially the way I'm scoring at the moment. But, it doesn't mean anything if we're not getting the results which are needed.

"The current league position which we're in means it is all about results. Even though I scored, I'm disappointed we haven't been able to get something out of the game because we did well. 

"We were dominant in the first 15 minutes as we didn't really have much to defend and we probably should have scored more than we did. That probably gave them a route into the game.

"We're not pointing any fingers in the dressing room as we all could have done better. We need to start getting clean sheets if we're going to move up the league table because even though we score goals, we aren't getting the results."

It was Wilson's 19th league goal this season, which means he has scored more league goals in a season than any City player since Mick Ferguson in 1979.

The Sky Blues welcome Stevenage to Sixfields on Wednesday and Wilson wants to see a positive response to the defeat at Brentford.

He added: "The last five games have been unacceptable so the gaffer is going to be angry and frustrated because he knows we're a better team than what we're playing at the moment.

"Certain things need to be worked on for us to make sure we pick up the results needed. We shouldn't be in the position we are so it is disappointing when you look at the league table.

"It makes the game on Wednesday a crucial match. We need to make sure we take the positives out of the game but also work on the things we didn't do so well.

"I'm sure we've got more than enough to pick up the right results in the next week or so."
