Salford coach Ian Watson says his side specifically targeted playmakers Jackson Hastings and Bevan French in their win over Wigan.
The Red Devils came from being 14-2 at half-time to comeback and win 18-14 against the Warriors at the AJ Bell Stadium on Friday night.
Watson said: “I thought it was a great performance by the boys.
“We had some honest words at half-time as a team – we were way off.
“We stuck to what we’d spoken about at half-time in the second half. We played the right way and stopped making stuff up.
“We did a bit of extra training focused on Jackson Hastings and Bevan French – we know Jacko inside out.
“We had a plan to cope with him. I thought Dan Sarginson won us the game with a big tackle on Bevan French at the end. He was superb.
“I’ve seen enough this season to know we can be a good team. It’s about keeping things simple and people doing their jobs.
“We have got a lot of building to do but now we have to back up next week. If we play how we train, we will be successful.”
