Simon Woolford expects Salford to be challenging for silverware this season

Huddersfield coach Simon Woolford expects Salford to be challenging at the top end of the table in 2020.

The Giants face the Red Devils at the AJ Bell Stadium on Friday evening (7:45pm).

Salford reached the Grand Final last term, and Woolford is expecting them to be there or thereabouts this time around.

He said: “I don’t think they’ve changed a lot from what they did last year.

“They lost their two best players in Josh Jones and Jackson Hastings so it’s going to take a little while to find their best footy.

“But they’ve still got some creative players like (Tui) Lolohea and they’ve got a good pack that work hard for each other.

“I thought that was a real feature for them last year and a big reason why they were able to go to Old Trafford so our forwards have got to aim up and I think they can do that.”
