The start of the 2013–14 season saw Wilson establish himself in the starting line-up. Forming strike partnership Leon Clarke, after just 11 league games Wilson had scored 10 goals, topping the League One scoring charts. He finished the season as League One's third-top scorer with 22 goals and also earned himself a place in the League One Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) Team of the Year, despite having spent two months out with a dislocated shoulder in early 2014. Wilson won League One Player of the month award for March, and also won his club's Top Goalscorer award, Player's Player award voted for by his teammates and the Player of the season award voted for by Coventry City fans.[citation needed]

Wilson suffered a fractured foot in his third appearance for the Lambs which saw his short loan spell end.[11]

In his first season at the club, Wilson helped them achieve promotion to the Premier League for the first time in the club's history, becoming the team's top scorer for that season in the process, scoring 20 league goals.[citation needed] He was Bournemouth's only player to score in all three domestic competitions,[citation needed] scoring the winning goal in a 2–1 victory against West Bromwich Albion in the fourth round of the League Cup.[14]
