AFC Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson says improving their away form will be key to finishing as high in the Premier League table as possible.

As quoted in the Bournemouth Echo, Wilson said a 7th-place finish is still achievable with their fixture run in.

The 27-year-old returned from injury in fantastic style on Saturday, scoring the first goal in the Cherries’ 2-0 victory over Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium in front of the England manager Gareth Southgate.

Ryan Fraser scored the other goal of the match, propelling Eddie Howe’s men to 12th in the table with 37 points from 30 matches.

Despite their league standing, the South Coast club are only seven points adrift of Wolverhampton Wanderers in 7th, meaning there is plenty to play for in the remaining fixtures.

Finishing 7th would see Bournemouth qualify for the Europa League, a fantastic achievement given the fact they were on the fourth division of English football not too many years ago.

Wilson spoke about the possibility of that happening, saying:

We want to climb as high as we can. Seventh place is still in our minds and we have a good run of games coming up. We will take each one as it comes and, hopefully, keep climbing the league. The players and the management believe in each other and we know we’ve got the quality to make an impact in this league – it’s just about being consistent. We haven’t been consistent away from home. Now is a good time to start with the good run of games we’ve got.
