Match preview | Warrington Wolves V Salford Red Devils | Friday 19th April

by | Apr 18, 2019

It’s back to the Betfred Super League this Easter Weekend as Salford Red Devils travel to the Halliwell Jones Stadium to face Warrington Wolves this Good Friday.

Last time out

Following an impressive performance in their Coral Challenge Cup match against Rochdale Hornets last Friday, Salford will be fighting back in the Super League in tomorrow’s match against The Wire.
Salford were unstoppable in their 76-6 victory conceding just one try to Rochdale, in contrast to the 13 tries scored for the Red Devils.
With Greg Burke winning his first try of the season in the third minute of the game and Niall Evalds going over four times for Salford, Ian Watson’s squad displayed impressive defensive and attacking positions throughout the game.
Gil Dudson, Ed Chamberlain, Logan Tomkins, Jake Bibby (2), George Griffin, Rob Lui and Krisnan Inu were also on the scoresheet, with Shaun Ainscough scoring the only try for Rochdale.


Warrington Wolves will be looking to make a comeback against Salford after losing away to St Helens last Friday.
The Saints seemed to dominate the game with a 14-point lead at half time, resulting from two tries in quick succession following Mike Cooper’s yellow card for a high tackle.
Wolves tried to fight back in the second half but failed to hold off a fierce attack from the Saints to bring the game to 38-12.

Form

Salford suffered a 16-23 loss in their previous Betfred Super League clash against Hull FC at the AJ Bell Stadium, placing them seventh in the table on a run of four straight losses.
However, a morale-boosting win over Rochdale Hornets in the Challenge Cup last weekend, following a squad shuffle from Head Coach Ian Watson, should give Salford the confidence to come out fighting at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.


The loss to St Helens for Warrington last Friday ended an impressive 9-match victory run for the Wire, leaving them sitting second in the Betfred Super League table.
Warrington will be looking to pull back from the loss as they obtain the home advantage for tomorrow’s meeting.

Head-to-head

Joey Lussick has been a prominent part of the Salford squad in recent games, scoring four tries and four goals for the Red Devils in 10 appearances.
Lussick will be looking to return to the squad as Hooker to face Warrington Wolves in tomorrow’s game at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
He will go head to head with The Wire’s Daryl Clark who matches Lussick in scoring four tries in 10 appearances for Wolves.

Team news

Ian Watson’s 19-man squad for tomorrow’s game sees the return of Mark Flanagan and Daniel Murray to replace Ed Chamberlain and Logan Tomkins.
George Griffin will also be looking at reaching his 100thSalford appearance if he plays in tomorrow’s 17-man team.
