DEC Patton is off the mark at his new club Salford Red Devils.

Former Warrington Wolves half-back Patton scored his first try for Salford in a convincing Challenge Cup third-round win against Widnes Vikings in today's lunchtime kick-off.

Warrington born-and-bred Patton, who started the game at hooker and moved into the halves later, made the most of a defender's late retreat when he darted over from dummy half in the 44th minute.
