Watson: Salford’s adaptability is the key

Salford boss Ian Watson believes his team’s ability to adapt to facing different types of opposition is serving them well this season.

Victories over Catalan and Warrington last weekend left the Red Devils second in the table and Watson was delighted with the two performances.

“In terms of points it was a really good weekend for us – we played really well in both matches, especially with it being over such a short period,” he told the club’s official website.

“The Warrington game was probably the pick of the pair, with Catalan being depleted through injuries, though we did show against them that we were able to be ruthless when the situation required this.

“Warrington on the other hand was a different challenge at a different level, because they have a very good squad.

“Not only that they had had a run of good results prior to the weekend, so it was important that we showed that we can compete with one of the most talented teams in the league.”

Salford host fourth-placed Wakefield on Sunday knowing that a victory would strengthen their hopes of a top three finish.

Trinity have been playing well in recent weeks, but Watson believes his team can continue their own good form this weekend.

“It’s all down to teams going out there and each of them endeavouring to perform to the best of their ability,” he added.

“Wakefield, just like Castleford and ourselves, have been doing that and coming out on top. It’s up to us to pose problems for them this week.”
