Ferriby keen for Wilson to stay on
NORTH Ferriby hope to persuade Anthony Wilson to extend his loan and help take the Villagers a step closer to promotion.
Wilson had a mixed day against second-placed Hednesford as Ferriby suffered a 3-2 defeat at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium on Saturday.
Whilst he scored both goals for the Villagers, he was sent off in the closing stages for twice showing dissent to referee Chris Akers in the same conversation.
Wilson's one-month loan from Alfreton Town is due to end shortly, but Ferriby boss Billy Heath is keen to speak to the Conference side about his future.

"We want to keep Anthony here," said Heath, who spoke to Wilson after Saturday's match and promised to do what he can to keep him at the Evo-Stick Premier Division leaders.
"We'll see what we can do and we'll speak to Alfreton and see if we can agree something.
"Anthony is a very good player and he scored two good goals for us at the weekend.
"His first was a clever touch to divert Danny Clarke's shot past the keeper at the far post, and his second was a powerful header from Russell Fry's corner on the right hand side."
Wilson's double gave Ferriby a 1-0 and 2-1 lead but two goals in the final six minutes saw Hednesford close the gap between them and Ferriby to three points, with the Midlanders having two games in hand.
Wilson, who scored twice on his debut in a 3-2 win at Nantwich at the start of November, will miss the trip to Buxton on December 15 even if he does extend his stay for another month.
Like Heath, Wilson was shown the red card by Akers in a game where he gave Hednesford two penalties to help cancel out Wilson's goals.
Wilson was booked for initial dissent and when he continued speaking to Akers, the referee followed up with his second yellow card in the space of 20 seconds.
Heath admits Wilson shouldn't have talked himself into trouble, but said the situation wasn't helped by the official.
"Anthony will be suspended for the match in Buxton if we do manage to keep him," Heath told the Mail.
"It was another poor decision, the referee seemed to have more to say to Anthony than Anthony did to him. He decided he wanted him off and that's what happened.
"Anthony should know better but the ref had lots and lots to say on the matter.
"As much as Anthony was giving it, the referee was giving it back, but he also had the power of the cards."
