Salford coach Phil Veivers has recalled front-rowers Adam Neal and Ryan Boyle for Friday night's live Sky Sports Super League clash with Warrington.

Shannon McPherson and Adam Sidlow have both been ruled out through injury, so Neal and Boyle are named in the 19-man squad.

Centre Ashley Gibson is also back in contention after recovering from a broken foot.

Warrington, meanwhile, will be without six regulars for their trip to the City of Salford Stadium.

David Solomona, Richie Myler and Rhys Evans are all back from long-term injury, though Ben Westwood, Brett Hodgson and Simon Grix miss out.

Morley returns

Prop Adrian Morley returns after a minor eye operation in place of Garreth Carvell, while Matty Blythe replaces Ryan Atkins at centre, with Evans stepping in for Joel Monaghan on the wing.

"We will give opportunities for players to get back into form and return to match fitness but just because someone has come back from injury doesn't mean they get to slot straight back in," said head coach Tony Smith.

Opposite number Veivers certainly doesn't expect it to be any easier for his side despite their opponents being without so many of their first-team regulars.

"They rested a lot the last time we played them and they beat us 24-20," he said. "That tells you how much depth they've got in their squad.

"I'm not really bothered about who they put on the park, my sole focus is on the 17 that I put out."

Salford: Patten, Broughton, Gleeson, Moon, Williams, Holdsworth, Smith, Gledhill, Howarth, Neal, Ashurst, Anderson, Wild, Paleaaesina, James, Gibson, Owen, Adamson, Boyle

Warrington: Blythe, Bridge, Briers, Cooper, Currie, Evans, Harrison, Higham, Hill, McCarthy, Monaghan, Morley, Myler, O'Brien, Ratchford, Riley, Solomona, Waterhouse, Wood
