Bournemouth

Striker hailed by boss

13th January 2018, 15:01 by Nick Harris

Boss Eddie Howe was quick to praise Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson following his second goal over the holiday period.

Howe hailed Wilson's second goal in three games - against Brighton - as proof the former Coventry striker is finally shaking off his two long-term knee injuries.

Wilson has had to be eased back into action this term off the back of a second knee ligament problem, but Howe believes the 25-year-old could be another eyeing top form.

"He's getting that sharpness back and that comes with time," said Howe. "It's great to see him nick a couple of goals, late on as well.

"And shows that he's getting back the edge that all good strikers need, of being in the right place at the right time.

"He looked better for us the longer the (Brighton) game went on. So full credit to him for that, and he's a massive player for us."
