Wrexham played Chesterfield for the first time in the Vanarama National League on Saturday afternoon, a fixture that has been historically played in the Football League in years gone by. 

It was honours even after 90 minutes but the game against old foes was marked with a goal from Bradley Walker, his first for the club since joining on-loan from Crewe Alexandra at the end of August. 

The midfielder stepped up to take a 20th minute penalty after the Spireites' Will Evans handled in the box.

"I spoke to the gaffer and knew I'd be taking the penalties today so I was buzzing when we got one. It felt so good to put it away," he said.  

"As soon as I picked the ball up I knew where I was putting it. I was confident and I know how much it meant to all those fans behind the goal so I was delighted to put it away." 

Speaking about the performace in both halves the midfielder added: "After the first-half I thought us going in 0-1 at half-time was unlucky and we should have been out of sight. It's happened a few times this season where we should be well ahead at half-time and it gives teams a chance against us. 

"I thought Chesterfield did really well in the second-half though, they did their jobs well you've got to give them credit, but we need to be better too. 

"If we keep playing like we do and how Sam wants us to play results will follow. It's still early season and we are doing really well."

When asked about scoring after Luke Summerfield and Luke Young had netted in recent matches he added: "I felt a bit left out! But seriously it's a massive bonus when the midfielders start scoring goals. Long may it continue because the more goals the team score from all over the park the better it is."

Talking about the 1,520 travelling Wrexham supporters Brad said: "Over 1,500 fans were here today and they believe in us. We believe in ourselves too so there is no reason why we can't keep moving on and plugging away. 

"The fans were unbelieveable today. I didn't expect to walk out and see so many. The noise they made was incredible and they are brilliant. I couldn't even hear their fans today, it was all Wrexham."
