STRIKER Callum Wilson expressed his delight after ending his scoring drought during Cherries’ dramatic late win at Burnley.

The 26-year-old frontman came off the bench and struck three minutes into stoppage-time to earn Eddie Howe’s men their first away victory over the Clarets.

Joshua King had earlier found the net to cancel out Chris Wood’s first-half opener in a 2-1 success for the visitors at Turf Moor.

Wilson’s winner ended a run of 12 games without a goal for the former Coventry hitman – his previous strike came during the 3-0 triumph at Chelsea in January.

He told the Daily Echo: “It had been a long time coming. I was delighted to get the goal and help the team get three points on the last day of the season and we ended on a good run.

“As a striker, when you haven’t scored for a while you are itching to get back on the scoresheet.

“The season was coming closer and closer to an end and there were minutes left. I just wanted to get a goal and I was delighted it was the winning one.

“Regardless of whether I scored or not, I would have been the same in the off season anyway. I will work hard and concentrate on what I need to improve on.

“But it means you can relax a bit more and not be so frustrated with not having scored for a while.”

On the contest as a whole, Wilson added: “I think it was a deserved win in the end, the boys were great. When you are on the bench, you are frustrated and you want to get the opportunity to come on and make an impact.

“I think all of us did that and credit to the boys who were already on. They put in a good shift.”

Victory saw Cherries end the season 12th in the Premier League with a return of 44 points.

The Dorset club just missed out on the top 10, finishing behind Crystal Palace and Newcastle on goal difference.

Goalkeeper Asmir Begovic played 90 minutes at Turf Moor, meaning he featured for every minute of the club’s third top-flight campaign.

Reflecting on Cherries’ league finish, the former Chelsea stopper added: “All in all, we can be very satisfied. This is the best league in the world, it is so difficult, so competitive and every game is so tough.

“To stay in the Premier League for the third season running is a huge achievement but, at the same time, knowing us a group and the manager, we are not going to be standing still.

“We will rest up now and hopefully push on again next season to see how far it takes us.”

Speaking about his side’s final-day heroics, the Bosnian stopper said: “It summed up the group really, we have great spirit and togetherness. We probably didn’t do it the easy way but we just kept going. It was never say die and we got our reward in the end.

“In the second half, we were more on top and had more of the ball. Probably in the end you would say we deserved it but it is never easy to go to Burnley and get a positive result.

“We wanted to finish the season on a positive note heading into the summer and we managed to do that.”
