Salford coach Phil Veivers is set to stick with the side that beat Huddersfield on Magic Weekend when they take on third-placed Catalan Dragons.

Threequarter Ashley Gibson is the Reds' only injury absentee.

Veivers is aware the Dragons' pack will dwarf that of the Reds but he insists his smaller squad can compete.

"They've a very big pack and every team that plays them knows they've been in a match," he said.

"We've a small pack and we need to address how we handle them and how we play against them."

Reds will go into the game with renewed confidence after a 38-34 win over previous leaders Huddersfield.

"Obviously we'll take some confidence out of it and we'll need to because they're a pretty good side," Veivers said.

"They've plenty of strike and Leon Pryce and Scott Dureau gives them lots of options around the halves."

Dragons coach Trent Robinson welcomes back from injury forwards Greg Mounis and David Ferriol and centre Daryl Millard.

Clint Greenshields, Jamal Fakir and Mathias Pala, who all picked up knocks in the win over London Broncos, miss out.

Salford squad: Patten, Broughton, Gleeson, Moon, Williams, Holdsworth, Smith, Jewitt, Howarth, McPherson, Ashurst, Anderson, Wild, Sidlow, Paleaaesina, Towers, Nero, Owen, Adamson.

Catalan Dragons squad: Pryce, Stacul, Bosc, Dureau, Ferriol, Henderson, Casty, Menzies, Anderson, Mounis, Raguin, Baile, Gossard, Millard, Simon, Paea, Baitieri, Duport, Fisher
