BARROW Raiders' Brad Walker has played down his drop goal heroics after he kicked the side to their first league win of the season.

Walker’s 30-yard effort in the final minute of normal time sealed a 15-14 victory over York Knights at Craven Park.

“Obviously when you hit it and it goes over like that it’s a good feeling,” he told the club’s official Facebook page.

“But I won’t take any credit for it. I think the lads in the middle got us in that position, which helped me a lot, so I’ll give all the credit to them.”

Walker said confidence in the side was still high before the clash with Knights, despite Raiders having lost their opening two Championship games.

He added: “I think we have been training well for a while. Obviously, we were unlucky against Widnes, some stuff happened, and we were down to 11 men.

“And then at Whitehaven we lost by one point. And Whitehaven away, not many teams are going to go there and blow them off the park, because of the pitch and the conditions.

“We are a confident bunch, and we know what we can do. We want to be in the top four in the table. We know we’ve got the quality to do that.

“Hopefully we can kick on now and keep getting the wins, and keep moving up the table.”

“We’re only three games in and it felt like we were panicking a bit after the first couple of games because we hadn’t got a win.

“But it’s a very long season, and you pick wins up along the way.

“I think early on in the season picking up wins is good for you, but we are only three games and there’s 28 to 30 games.

“There’s still a long way to go and we are still building, we are still gelling, we are only going to get better, and the wins will come.”
