Red Devils forward George Griffin, speaking to the League Express, admits the side is struggling for confidence following Friday night’s defeat against Castleford at the The Salford Stadium.
Salford are yet to get off the mark in the Super 8s stage of the season but Griffin knows the Red Devils are still in the hunt for a place in October’s Grand Final at Old Trafford.
Griffin, sponsored by Super Josh, said: “Our form is getting us down. It’s a confidence thing.
“We need to go back to what was working for us at the start of the season. We need to do what we do best and throw the ball around.
“Our yardage defence isn’t good enough. They’re getting out of their end too easy and we need to fix it up.
Despite being enduring their worst run of the season so far Griffin knows the Red Devils have the quality and character to finish inside the top four come the end of September.
“A lot of people are saying we’ve done well just to make the eight, but we’re better than that.
“It would be upsetting if we didn’t make the four, given our season so far and where we finished at the end of the regular season.
“But, we’re only a couple of points off the top four – that’s just a couple of wins. If we can get that in the next game it’s back in the air.
“We’ve lost some big players that go well for us, but the young lads need to step up in their place and we need to take the game to the opposition.”
Fans are reminded that tickets are now on sale for all the Red Devils Super 8s home games against Wakefield, Huddersfield and St Helens. Tickets are also still on sale for Friday’s trip to Wigan. Supporters are also reminded that season tickets are valid for all Super 8s home fixtures.
