Callum Wilson named Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month

4 April 2014

Coventry City striker Callum Wilson has been named the Sky Bet League 1 Player of the Month for March.

The 22-year-old's poise in front of goal has continued to amaze in his first season of League football.

He has assumed sole responsibility up front since Leon Clarke left the Sky Blues, and scored in five straight games, notching seven goals in total.

Coventry manager Steven Pressley said: "I'm absolutely delighted for Callum.

"His work ethic and determination have been second to none all season and it's really pleasing for me to see him getting rewarded.

"To see the way he has got himself straight back into scoring form after more than two months out is a testament to the boy. He fully deserves to be recognised for it.

"If he continues to apply himself in the way he has I'm sure this award will be the first of many."

Sky Sports' Football League pundit Don Goodman said: "It was a devastating blow for Coventry to lose Leon Clarke to Wolves and Callum Wilson to injury at the same time.

"Happily, Callum's return at the start of March coincided with another glut of goals for the young centre-forward.

"Steven Pressley can start to look towards building for next season. It may be difficult, but keeping Callum must be at the top of his list of priorities."

Sky Bet Head of Football Paul Wiggins said: "It's been a remarkable return to first-team action for Wilson.

"His form was certainly not expected after a two-month lay-off. But it's a welcome shot in the arm for Coventry, who had suffered an alarming dip in form."
