Salford were not worried about away form, reveals Ian Watson

Salford coach Ian Watson said the team weren’t panicking about not having won away from home in 2018 prior to their win at Huddersfield.

The Red Devils downed the Giants 30-12 at the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday afternoon to secure their first win away from their AJ Bell Stadium home this year.

But Watson said his side were not worried about their hoodoo prior to the game.

He said: “We’ve not even been worried about that.

“We’re confident wherever we go whether that will be home or away.

“We’ve played some good teams away from home so far in the early part of the season and in those games, we’ve been really competitive so that wasn’t a problem for us but I suppose it is good to get that monkey off our back but we’re not overly bothered about that.

I thought we started well and then went a little scrappy in between we just needed to finish our sets a little better.

“But in the second half, we got that composure when they were having a real purple patch attacking our line and we defended really well, fronted up and we know it was going to turn at some point and we got the rewards at the backend.”

Salford welcome Wakefield Trinity to the AJ Bell Stadium on Friday, 8pm kick-off.
