Salford 18-10 Bradford

Three quickfire second half tries saw Salford send Bradford crashing to their second league defeat in a week at The Willows.

In a tight game, Paul Sykes claimed the only score of the first half, to give the Bulls a slender 4-0 advantage at the break.

But a burst of tries in a ten minute spell ultimately won Salford the match. The excellent Richie Myler broke the defensive line and sent Stuart Littler over the try line with a lovely inside ball, and Jon Wilshere‘s conversion edged the Reds in front.

A mistake by experienced campaigner Steve Menzies gave Salford the ball, and youngster Luke Adamson handed off two defenders before finding Mark Henry who rounded Bradford’s former Salford full-back Michael Platt, with Wilshere’s conversion increasing Salford’s advantage.

And just two minutes later, 19-year-old Myler sent Adamson crashing over the line to give the home side breathing space.

Bradford hit back and clawed their way back in the game with ten minutes to go. Long passing across the field created space and Sykes found the gap for his second try.

But it wasn’t enough for the Bulls, who have now been leapfrogged by Salford in to 11th place in the Super League table.
