Salford have requested that their Super League game against Hull on Friday be postponed due to their ongoing injury problems.
The club confirmed in a tweet earlier today that they had contacted their opponents and are awaiting a response.
It read: “Due to unprecedented injury crisis the we have requested this Friday’s game v @hullfcofficial be postponed. We are awaiting Hull response.”
Assistant coach Ian Watson, 38, had been in full training last week although he wasn’t called in to action for Sunday’s 22-20 defeat to Castleford.
The Red Devils were without four players through suspension and eight through injury against the Tigers, and were forced to sign Wigan pair Oliver Gildart and James Greenwood on loan last week to bolster their numbers.
But they look to have picked up more casualties over the weekend, with Adrian Morley (ankle), Liam Hood (thumb), Kevin Locke (groin) and another new signing, Wayne Godwin (concussion) all picking up knocks which make them doubtful for the trip to Hull.
