Ollie Horgan’s Finn Harps remain bottom of the League of Ireland table going into the mid-season break following their 1-0 defeat against St Patrick’s Athletic on Friday night.
Under-19 attacker Walker came off the bench to net his first senior goal as St Patrick’s Athletic took a narrow win over Ollie Horgan’s men.
Walker’s goal, seven minutes from the end, consigned Harps to defeat after a decent display at Richmond Park.
Speaking to the media following Harps’ Dublin clash, Horgan said: “I felt (on Friday) that we played well and still came out the narrow side of a defeat.
“If we don’t play well, we will get beaten comfortably, and even when you play well you run the risk of what happened (on Friday).”
Going into the season’s interval Harps sit level on points with UCD but with have played three games more than the ‘Students’, and Horgan insists his side must continue to remain focused if they are to be in with a chance of survival this season.
“We knew how difficult it would be (this season) and if we were given the playoff spot at the start of the year we would’ve taken it with open arms.
“The difficult part is that UCD has three games on us and that playoff spot itself will be a huge achievement for us if we are able to turn it around but we will keep going.”
