Salford target a strong finish

Assistant coach Martin Gleeson wants Salford to repeat last week’s cup success against Wakefield when they visit St Helens on Friday.

The Red Devils still lie second in the Super League table and with a Challenge Cup semi-final against Wigan to come Gleeson will urge his players not to let their standards drop.

“Whether it had been in the cup or the league last week we needed a performance after those two defeats, so we addressed a few areas as we hadn’t been getting the ball to where we needed to do,” he told the club’s official website.

“In fact we fixed up a lot of things, and got the result on the back of that. We now need to carry it on this week, as any visit to St Helens is going to be a tough one and we need to finish this part of the season strongly.

“It’s a tough competition and you have to be at your best every week in order to stand a chance of winning.

“It’s all new territory for us – semi-final and top four spot – but we’ve been tested every week and have been found to be a strong team.

“Other teams who we have already beaten once will be out for revenge so it just gets harder and harder, but it’s something we are confident we can do.”
