Salford looking up and not worrying about relegation

Salford coach Ian Watson has shrugged off talk about points needed for survival and says they are looking to push for the play-offs.

The Red Devils’ win over London on Saturday moves them on 12 points, six points ahead of the Broncos at the bottom, with what was a club-record equalling fifth away win in Super League this season.

Watson told the club’s official website: “We’re not looking at relegation. We want to get enough points to get in a play-off position really and give ourselves the best chance of that.

“We want to aim for that and see where it takes us really. I don’t really want to be worrying about how many points keeps you from relegation. I’d rather other people be worried about that.”

Salford were the last club to be relegated in the one-up, one-down promotion/relegation method back in 2007.

That season they finished on 13 points from 27 games, which is just one more point than they’ve already accumulated in 2019.
