Joe Riley believes he knew his thunderbolt against Sheffield United was going in before it left his boot.
Joe Riley’s wonder goal in Bury’s Sky Bet League One clash against Sheffield United last Saturday is already being dubbed as the goal of the season, and we are only in September.
Riley is making a name for himself with brilliant long distance goals after winning goal of the season last campaign for a similar goal against Shrewsbury Town in the Shakers’ run to promotion from Sky Bet League Two.
The full-back spoke to Shakers PlayerHD after the match against the Blades, and said:
“I just fancied my chances, I have faith in my ability and know I can do them kind of things, so when the opportunity comes, I’ll always have a go.”
Joe also added that as soon as he hit it, he knew it was in because he hit it “as sweet as a nut”.
