Salford will be hoping that history repeats itself when they travel to Stade Gilbert Brutus to take on Catalan Dragons on Saturday.

The City Reds enjoyed a triumphant trip to France last season, Jodie Broughton scoring all four of their tries in a 22-10 victory.

Broughton, however, will not get the chance to destroy the Dragons again this time around due to injury; Ashley Gibson and Danny Williams are sidelined too, leaving Salford without a specialist winger.

Coach Phil Veivers has called his 21-year-old son Josh into the squad for what would be his debut and has also added forwards Vinnie Anderson and Adam Neal.

The Reds head out on their travels looking for a fourth straight Super League win after seeing off London Broncos, Hull and Widnes in recent weeks.

Entertaining football

"I'm over the moon with how we're going," Veivers, who saw his side crush the Broncos 44-12 last Friday, said. "We're playing some entertaining football and defending okay. At the moment it's all good.

"All we speak about is improving each week and we see this as a big test to see where we're at."

Calatan, meanwhile, have five first-team regulars missing for what will be just their second home game of the season so far.

Second rowers Steve Menzies and Louis Anderson, full-back Clint Greenshields and hooker Ian Henderson, who this week was named in England's elite training squad, are all injured.

The home team are also without centre Setaimata Sa through suspension, so Ben Fisher and Cyrille Gossard are recalled by coach Trent Robinson.

Mickael Simon looks set to make his first appearance of the campaign and there are also places in the 19-man squad for Julian Bousquet and Damien Cardace.

The Dragons will be looking to bounce back from last week's loss at Wigan, their first reverse of 2012. Their last home fixture against Hull fell foul of a frozen pitch, meaning they have only played four games.

Catalan Dragons: Blanch, Pryce, Bosc, Dureau, Ferriol, Casty, Mounis, Raguin, Baile, Gossard, Millard, Simon, Bousquet, Fakir, Paea, Baitieri, Dupport, Fisher, Cardace.

Salford: Patten, Moon, Gleeson, Neal, Veivers, Holdsworth, Smith, Jewitt, Anderson, James, Ashurst, McPherson, Wild, Nero, Adamson, Owen, Howarth, Paleaaesina, Boyle
