This Thursday evening sees the first game in the Betfred Super League since Super’s League’s structural changes were announced, as the Red Devils look to get back to winning ways against Widnes Vikings.
Red Devils’ Director Andy Rosler said: “It‘s clear that we do need to see an improvement on the field and, obviously, recent results do test fans resolve but this was always going to be a very difficult transitional year. The sport itself is now set to go through it’s on period of change and Salford intend to be at the forefront of the exciting times ahead.
“However, we still need the continued support, understanding and patience of our fans and ask them to stick with us in this crucial period of the current season and also that they encourage stay away or new fans to support the team.”
The first meeting between the sides this season saw the Vikings snatch victory from the jaws of defeat to send Salford home smarting and looking for the two points in this return fixture.
Salford have the chance to open up a six-point gap on the Vikings with a win and urge all their supporters to turn out and make the difference by cheering the lads over the line in this crucial game.
“Great strides are being made off the pitch and around the club to re-integrate the Club back in to the Community and to establish a better platform from which to grow. We intend to focus on the pride of our City going forward. That doesn’t always bring in immediate results but the Club will be much better in the long term.
“Retaining our Super League status this season is paramount and given all the circumstances will be a fantastic achievement and against the odds according to many ‘expert’ opinions.”
New recruits Ed Chamberlain and Greg Burke are in line to make their debuts for the Red Devils as Ian Watson’s men look to turn the corner and make a late-season push for the playoffs.
