CALLUM Wilson admitted his perfectionist instincts left him wanting more after the Cherries striker had fired his new club to an opening day success against Huddersfield.
The 22-year-old, signed from Coventry City in July, scored twice in the 4-0 thumping of the Terriers at the John Smith’s Stadium, with further goals from Marc Pugh and Yann Kermorgant completing the rout.
However, Wilson missed the chance to complete a dream treble when, given the nod ahead of regular penalty taker Kermorgant, he shot straight at Alex Smithies from the spot after being hauled down by the home keeper.
Wilson, whose friendly hat-trick against Oxford United nine days ago included a spot-kick, felt he should have switched directions instead of going the same way.
He told the Daily Echo: “The two goals were massive for me. I scored a hat-trick last week which gave me the confidence to get the two goals on Saturday.
“It should have been three and I’m disappointed that it wasn’t. On a different day, the penalty would have gone in.
“I went that way for the penalty last week so I think I should have changed sides because Huddersfield would have been watching that game.
“The goalkeeper guessed correctly and I didn’t hit it hard enough to make him work a bit more.”
The clash in West Yorkshire was Wilson’s first taste of Championship football with Cherries after he stepped up following a 22-goal season in League One last term.
The frontman showcased his pace and finishing touch with a superb solo effort in the first half, following a lofted pass by Tommy Elphick.
And Wilson added his second and Cherries’ fourth after the break when he stabbed home from Matt Ritchie’s searching cross.
Wilson continued: “It was a good experience to play with the team in a competitive match.
“There are great players here and everyone wants to be starting. I got the nod to play and, thankfully, I took my chance.
“I didn’t think there was a massive difference in standard compared to League One, although there were better individuals on the pitch.
“Throughout the Football League there’s not a great difference in quality and, if you can score goals at any level, then it will stand you in good stead.”
