Salford coach Phil Veivers admitted his side did not play well despite a second half comeback against Wakefield.
Veivers went as far to describe his team as “poor”, but gave credit to his side for showing the courage to fight back.
He said: “In the first half, we never got out of our half. They possibly should have been another two or three scores ahead of us.
“We never had one set down on their goal-line and we scored a try that came from our own goal-line. We completed at less than 50 per cent in the first half.
“The frustrating thing is that we had opportunities to win the game but it’s our skill level that’s let us down.”
