It simply does not get bigger than this.

The most crucial game of our season so far, as we welcome playoff rivals, Warrington Wolves to the Salford Stadium, in Round 25 of the Betfred Super League.

Sitting just two points behind today’s visitors, a win would bring us back level, with just two games remaining.

After a mid-season slump, the Wire have returned to form with two excellent victories against Hull FC and Castleford Tigers in recent weeks.

They were leading the way for a lot of the campaign, but will now want to confirm a spot in the top six, at the very least.

We were well-beaten by Wigan Warriors in our last encounter, but spirits are still high and the squad are focused on getting the job done later today.

Here’s everything you need to know before this one:


The major squad changes have come in the suspension department.

Despite managing to overturn King Vuniyayawa’s ban on appeal, Kallum Watkins and Oliver Partington remain suspended for today’s clash after Grade B offences.

Matt Costello, Adam Sidlow and James Greenwood all return to the 21 following minor injury concerns, whilst Rhys Williams, Alex Gerrard and Shane Wright remain long-term absentees.


Reflecting on last Friday’s performance, Assistant Coach, Krisnan Inu was on media duties and said the boys are doing everything they can to get themselves ready to bounce back against Warrington.

“The boys are looking alright,” Inu began.

“Obviously a few battered bodies, same as any other team at this stage in the season, so the boys are looking after themselves and preparing for Sunday.”

Looking ahead to our final three games, Inu highlighted the next two as pivotal, with the Red Devils set to take on Hull KR after this Sunday’s game with the Wire.

“They’re the two big ones. Looking at the ladder, we’re the three that are competing for that fifth and sixth spot, so every game is big to us – especially at this time of the season.

“Every game is a final, so we’ll treat this one like a final and make sure we get our boys ready for this weekend.”
