Wilson can have a big smile on his face again

The form of Callum Wilson is going to be key for Bournemouth this season. Callum only had some 20 minutes to make an impact against Blackburn Roversm but he came good with a special spell. While Eddie Howe will be disappointed that two goals were conceded again in the Carabao Cup, when Wilson is on form Bournemouth can get results.
Callum nets his third goal of the season.
Callum was unlucky when he hit the cross bar just before getting his late winner. It is rare for Callum to score headed goals, but he made his effort count just in time against Blackburn. Callum needed a goal and he will be pleased to have just made a contribution after some goalless games, even if his general play has been good.

What I do like about Callum is that he can have a quite game and still score a goal when he has not seen much of the ball. That's why it was a surprise to me against Burnley when he was substituted. He does seem to specialise in late goals and that's no bad thing.

While Howe could have been beginning to think a change up top might be necessary, Callum is now much more likely to keep his starting place. The Blackburn game also saw a good appearance from Marc Pugh and sometimes I think being familiar with what Callum wants in terms of a delivery can help the team, so maybe Callum just needed someone like Pugh to help him get back on the scoring path.
