Wilkinson Keen On Spireites Extension

10 October 2016

Striker Conor Wilkinson has burst onto the Proact scene with a string of goals, and he's now looking for more of the same and a January loan extension.

The Bolton Wanderers loanee only joined the Spireites on transfer deadline day but has set about repaying manager Danny Wilson's faith in him with a series of mature displays and four Spireites goals.

Now the 21-year-old want to hang around: "The gaffer's said there's an agreement in place to extend my loan and hopefully if everything goes to plan we'll see if we can get that done in January.

"If it was the right thing to do then it'd be an easy decision, at the minute I need to concentrate on my football and we'll see where we are."

The Republic of Ireland under 21s striker started out alongside Ched Evans, and has struck up an equally lethal partnership with Kristian Dennis in recent games, and Wilkinson sees further goalscoring potential.

"Me and Kristian do work well together but I'm looking forward to working more with Ched as well as Kristian when we're all fit," he said. "I imagine that we'd all get goals and make chances if we play together.

"It's so far so good for me here, it's five or six starts and four goals so I'm happy with that so far.

"I think it's a bit of everything, I've been in the right place at the right times and the gaffer's set up plays nicely for me. I've had a bit of luck; one hit the post and went in, one chipped the 'keeper, so it's been a bit of everything."
