WOLVES scrum half Dec Patton described the winning performance against Leeds Rhinos as "outstanding" and says it is up to him to keep performing in order to maintain his place in Tony Smith's side.

The 21-year-old replaced injured Kevin Brown and was one of a number of players to catch the eye as The Wire ended their eight-match winless run in Super League, stretching back to last year's Grand Final loss at Old Trafford.

"It was outstanding, all the boys are happy," said the former Latchford Albion junior.

"We got a bit of confidence out of the draw against Hull last week and got the win.

"I've taken my shot, I've just got to keep it going now. It's up to me to play well and try not to give Tony a chance to take me out of the team."

The former Newman High School student says he takes confidence from the backing he is receiving from Warrington fans.

"I'm a hometown lad, I love the club and I love playing for Warrington," he said.
