HARRY Wilson vowed Cherries would graft to find their scoring prowess and insisted: “It’s up to us to regain our confidence.”

The Wales international almost broke the deadlock with a dangerous free-kick that clipped the post, after coming on as a substitute during the Dorset club’s 0-0 draw at Watford on Saturday.

Stalemate with the Hornets meant Eddie Howe’s men have now gone 314 minutes without troubling the scorers in the top-flight.

Asked what was not clicking in front of goal, the Liverpool loanee told the Daily Echo: “Maybe confidence, when you go a few games without a goal - for a striker, a winger or throughout the team.

“Maybe you lose a bit of confidence, you start overthinking things rather than maybe just putting your foot through the ball like you would do normally.

“It’s up to us to regain our confidence because we are confident we can create chances – it’s up to us to put them away.

“For us not to score in the past few games is disappointing but it’s up to us to work on it in training and put it right next week.”

Wrexham-born Wilson has scored three times in nine top-flight appearances this season, having started seven times.

The 22-year-old was left out of Howe’s XI at Vicarage Road in place of summer signing Arnaut Danjuma, who made his first league start since his summer arrival.

Quizzed on whether he had spoken to the boss about his omission, Wilson replied: “I had a chat with the manager, he just said he was making a couple of changes because we hadn’t scored in a couple of games.

“I was disappointed not to start, I want to start every game. I feel when I am on the pitch I can create chances and score as well.

“But when I came on, he just said ‘have the mindset that you can make a difference and try to win us the game’. That’s what I was hoping to do with that free-kick.

“I thought it had a chance as soon as I hit it. Just to see it clip the post was disappointing. It would have been nice to see that go in and win us the game.”

He added: “The second half was very open. It was there for both teams to go and win. No-one was able to do that in the end. I felt we had our chances.

“From a positive point of view, it’s two clean sheets in a row.”
