TERRIERS tormentor Callum Wilson revealed how a fear of failure would inspire him to boost his razor-sharp scoring record against Huddersfield Town.

The Cherries frontman has netted five goals in three games against the West Yorkshire outfit, including a hat-trick against David Wagner’s men in a 4-0 win at Vitality Stadium in November.

Former Coventry City star Wilson also made an excellent full debut for Cherries against Huddersfield in the Championship in August 2014. He netted twice in a 4-0 triumph at John Smith’s Stadium, a missed penalty denying him a hat-trick.

Wilson is expected to feature for Eddie Howe’s troops at the same venue on Sunday (12noon), when they will hope to extend to eight games their club-record unbeaten Premier League run.

He told the Daily Echo: “I seem to like playing against Huddersfield. It will be good to go back there and, hopefully, I won’t be missing as many chances as I did against Stoke and will be putting them in the back of the net.

“On my debut I played against them and scored two goals, so I know I have done it before.

“You get a bit of confidence from that. This season I scored a hat-trick against them as well, so I will go there wanting to score and improve. If you don’t then it’s as if you have failed on that day.”

Wilson’s treble against the Terriers marked his first Premier League goals since his return from a second serious knee injury.

He has gone on to net seven times in 16 top-flight games and has provided two assists.

An impressive January which yielded three goals and two assists from four games saw the 25-year-old nominated for the division’s player-of-the-month accolade.

Reflecting on his stellar comeback, the striker added: “I would say having time out matured me. I looked at my game in different ways. Even if you are injured, you can still learn by watching games back. Working on the training field now, you appreciate it a bit more every day.”

A run of five league defeats on the bounce has seen the Terriers plummet into the bottom three.

They have failed to find the net in 14 of their 26 fixtures this season and have accumulated three points from their past eight games.

Wilson added: “Huddersfield started on fire but it shows you need to be consistent in this league and keep grinding out results. They haven’t managed to do that of late but we have to make sure we don’t go there and give them a leg up to let them turn round their season.

“If you look at our fixtures, we have to fancy ourselves against the teams we are coming up against. You want to stay unbeaten for as long as possible. Why not make more history? Why not go eight or nine games?

“It might not take as many points this season to get to eighth place but we have to make sure we work hard to bridge that gap.”
