Catalan Dragons will be looking to put their Tetley's Challenge Cup disappointment behind them against Salford City Reds in Super League action on Friday night.

The French club, who sit fifth in the standings, bowed out of the prestigious competition last Saturday with a 24-13 defeat to Hull FC on home soil.

The City Reds had last weekend off and head coach Brian Noble will be hoping his team can secure just their sixth league victory in their 22nd match of the campaign.

Noble has not made any changes to the squad that conceded 22 second-half points last time out in a 28-18 loss at Hull KR.
