Warrington are aiming to make it seven straight wins when they entertain Salford at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on Sunday.

Tony Smith's Wolves have recovered from a poor start to the season and now find themselves fifth in the Super League table on the back of five wins on the bounce, with a Challenge Cup quarter-final victory over Bradford also secured during that run.

Meanwhile, Salford's Rangi Chase-inspired win over Bradford last time out was their first win in nine games and kept the big spenders' slim play-off hopes alive.

Hosts Warrington make two changes to their 19-man squad with Tom Walker and Ben Westwood replacing Anthony England and youngster George King.

Return

Salford prop Adrian Morley will return to his former club for the first time while Salford coach Iestyn Harris brings in Martin Gleeson for Michael Platt, in the only change to the Red Devils squad as he looks for his side to build on what he considered his side's best performance 'for a while' against Bradford.

"We probably put our best performance in places for a while together in the Bradford game," he told the club's official website.

"The first half an hour or so saw us finally play some rugby league and we were faster to everything and put us in a good place. There were a lot of really good individual performances,our pack was strong and the young kids who came in didn’t look out of place.

"There can be no doubting that it was a very important win for us. We now look forward to what will be a tough test against Warrington."

Warrington Wolves: Asotasi, Atkins, C. Bridge, Currie, Dwyer, B. Evans, R. Evans, Grix, Harrison, Higham, Hill, J. Monaghan, Ormsby, Philbin, Ratchford, Riley, Russell, Walker, Westwood.

Salford Red Devils: Fages, Rapira, Evalds, Sa'u, Johnson, Gleeson, Chase, J. Walne, Walton, Hock, Lee, Dixon, Ashurst, Puletua, Tasi, Morley, Meli, Tomkins, Griffin.
