Warrington will take over at the top of the Super League table if they beat Salford by more than 24 points at Murrayfield on Saturday.

However, even if the Wolves reach the summit, their spell at the top could well be brief as leaders Wigan take on Huddersfield on day two of the Magic Weekend 24 hours later.

Tony Smith's side beat the Reds 32-2 earlier this season and also triumphed 50-18 over them at Millennium Magic in 2007.

However, Smith says he is expecting a difficult test from Shaun McRae's men.

"It will be another tough game," he said. "The last time we played it was a tough fixture. It took some time to crack that nut.

"They have overturned some teams this year and on neutral turf it's going to be a different environment."

No ill-feeling

The game will bring scrum-half Richie Myler up against his former side, but Salford coach McRae insists there is no ill-feeling towards the England international.

The 19-year-old rejected the chance to become the highest-paid player in the club's history last autumn and instead accepted a four-year deal to join the Wolves.

At the time, McCrae was frustrated that speculation over Myler's future had affected the player's performances on the field.

"I have never had a problem with a player moving on if he thought it was in his best interests," he told the club's website.

"The length and size of contract we offered showed how much we valued him but at the end of the day Richie had to make the call.

"The only thing that caused us any problem was the manner in which it was done."

Salford squad: Fitzpatrick, J. Smith, Talau, Gibson, Ratchford, Spencer, Sidlow, Alker, Wood, Sibbit, Adamson, Swain, M. Smith, Littler, Leuluai, Tyrer, Holdsworth, Boyle, McGilvray.

Warrington squad: L. Anderson, V. Anderson, Atkins, Bridge, Briers, Cooper, Grix, Harrison, Hicks, Higham, Mathers, McCarthy, Monaghan, Morley, Myler, Riley, Solomona, Westwood, Williams.
