PRESS WATCH: Former Coventry City striker Callum Wilson backs the Sky Blues' Championship bid

26 November 2015

Speaking to the Coventry Observer, the 23-year old striker admitted playing against City would be 'surreal'...

Former Coventry City striker Callum Wilson has backed the Sky Blues' bid to return to the Championship, speaking to Coventry Observer's Steve Carpenter.

The 23-year old enjoyed a fine start to life in the Premier League, scoring five goals in seven appearances for AFC Bournemouth before a knee injury halted his progress this campaign.

Wilson moved to the Cherries after the 2013/14 season and his goals fired the South Coast club to the Premier League last season.

Speaking exclusively to Steve Carpenter, Wilson admitted he still watches how the Sky Blues are progressing and hopes to see City in the Championship.

Wilson said: “They’re doing great at the moment and I would love to see them in the Championship,” Wilson told the Observer.

“I wouldn’t ever want Bournemouth to drop out of the Premier League but if they did and Coventry got promoted then what a game that would be!

“It would be a bit surreal playing back at the Ricoh against Coventry – it would be crazy.

“I don’t really see a lot of Coventry people and I’ve not really been back that much so you don’t really know what people make of you when you’ve left."
