Super League: Kieran Dixon says London's first victory is not far away

London Broncos talent Kieran Dixon does not believe it will be long before the Super League strugglers win their first game this season.
Tony Rea's revamped squad have found it a struggle so far in 2014, although there were plenty of signs against Wigan Warriors on Friday things are starting to come together.
It has been difficult for the capital club to pull a squad together after they were saved and relocated to Barnet while the talented Dixon remains on the sidelines.
The 21-year-old has been unable to influence things on the pitch as he has missed the season after suffering a serious knee injury while representing England Knights last October.
"The results have been improving from the beginning so I don't think it will be that long until you'll see us win," he told Total Rugby League.
"The Wigan result was encouraging. People have been writing us off for the whole season, I've seen on TV the commentators say they will be surprised if we win one game, which is kind of hard to hear.

"You don't want to play the game to not win, but we've got, I feel, a team of good young players and we just need a bit of experience now, which would help us, but it's always going to be hard to get good-name experience with what has happened at the club.
"I think everyone is happy, though, they know they're not far from clicking and once we click we will challenge teams more and hopefully we can win fairly soon."
Dixon is still a few months away from returning to first-team action after only just resuming running, although he is thrilled to be on the road to recovery.
"Around June or July time is what I've been told, but it might be a bit after that," he continued. "I've been waiting ages to run again.
"Obviously I don't want to come back early and injure it again. The only goal is to recover 100 per cent. If that means delaying my return a bit then I have to do it."
