Phil Brown admits he would love to keep Fraizer Campbell on-loan at the KC Stadium after the Manchester United striker inspired Hull's win over Wolves.

The promising front-man scored his third goal in three games to help Hull to a 2-0 win over a Wolves side badly struggling for form.

Brown is to talk to Manchester United counterpart Sir Alex Ferguson in a bid to convince the Scot his starlet would benefit from an extended spell in the Championship.

"Anybody who scores goals is an important asset," said Brown. "His sort of goal strike-rate would be appreciated in any division.

"He is on loan until the middle of January and as far as I'm concerned it is a no-brainer - I'd like to keep him until the end of the season.

"I will try to do as much persuading as possible, but the decision is out of my hands."

Brown added: "The work-rate and commitment of the players was terrific and we put Wolves under a lot of pressure.

"The performance warrants being happy. Maybe it was because I gave them Christmas day off."

McCarthy miffed

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy conceded his side were lacklustre and that Hull were the better team throughout the 90 minutes.

"We did okay in the first half but in the second we produced a very lacklustre display and they were better than us in every department," said McCarthy.

"When they got their goal they showed great desire and they dominated the game. I do believe I've got the players and I keep looking for that something that's going to spark us off.

"The league is still very tight and that is a silver lining to a very dark cloud at the moment. We're having a difficult spell but we have to rally round and support each other."
