Warrington Wolves have injected young blood into their squad ahead of Sunday's Super League clash with Salford City Reds.

Gavin Bennion and James Saltonstall, both 20, have been included in Tony Smith's 19-man party as the Wolves look to extend their recent good form having won on four of their last five outings.

The inclusion of prop Bennion and centre Saltonstall means there is no room for Gareth O'Brien and Rhys Williams who are both omitted for the visit of the struggling Reds side.

Smith's side have won four of the last five meetings between the two sides but Wolves hooker Micky Higham insists there is no room for complacency.

"It's a different Salford team from when we played them last," he said. "They've improved under Brian (Noble), he's putting the structures in place and I can see that they are improving."

Improved

Meanwhile, Reds head coach Noble has made just one change to his 19-man squad for the trip to the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Hooker Gareth Owen has been included for the journey east meaning prop Darrell Griffin misses out.

A 28-22 victory against Widnes Vikings at the Etihad Stadium during the Magic Weekend lifted the Reds off the foot of the table and Noble is relishing the prospect of moving up the Super League standings.

"It's a thrill to climb off the bottom but that's only a by-product of our hard work," he said. "If we focus on the ladder, we're in big trouble; the challenge is staying off the bottom of the ladder."

The Reds have now won three of their last five matches and victory against the Wolves could see them elevated as high as 10th depending on results elsewhere. Meanwhile, Warrington will aim to keep the pressure on at opposite end of the table as they continue to chase leaders Wigan Warriors.

Wolves: Atkins, Bennion, Briers, Carvell, Cooper, Currie, Grix, Higham, Hill, J. Monaghan, M. Monaghan, Morley, Myler, Ratchford, C. Riley, Saltonstall, Waterhouse, Westwood, Wood.

Reds: Broughton, Gibson, Gleeson, Gaskell, Foran, Ashurst, Dixon, Wild, Godwin, Mauro, James, Neal, Fages, Sneyd, McGoldrick, Owen, Evalds, A. Walne, Emmitt.
