Wigan Warriors coach Matt Peet praised in-form winger Abbas Miski for his impressive progression since arriving at the club.

Lebanon international Miski joined Wigan ahead of the 2022 season from Championship side London Broncos.

The 27-year-old actually started this season on loan back with the Broncos but has since played in Wigan’s last 11 games.

And on Sunday afternoon, Miski scored his ninth try of the campaign as he helped the Warriors win 26-6 at Salford.

“Delighted,” Peet said when asked about Miski’s recent performances after the game.

“Credit to his work away from the field, he’s a really popular member of the club.

“He works so hard on his game and his combinations, I watch his footage and he’s physically outstanding.

“He gets a mention when he crosses the try-line but quite often when you look at our kick chase efforts and marker tackles and our scrambling back, he’s right in the picture.

“There’s so much to like about him so credit to him, I’m really pleased.”

The Warriors led 8-6 at the break thanks to first half tries from Joe Shorrocks and Liam Farrell, with Ben Hellewell scoring his first try for Salford.

And Wigan then scored 18 unanswered points in the second half to clinch a strong 26-6 win, with second half tries coming from Miski, Liam Marshall and Farrell.

“Getting away from here with two points was always going to be pleasing,” Peet said.

“Salford are a strong team, I’m well aware they are missing a few players but the two points was the priority today.

“The way we did it was very workmanlike, very professional and committed – I thought it was a step in the right direction for us.”

The atmosphere was bouncing from both sets of supporters, with the Red Devils announcing a 7,854 attendance – a club record whilst at the Salford Stadium.
