Super League: Salford Red Devils v London Broncos preview
Salford will be hoping not to upset Dr Marwan Koukash again when they face bottom club London Broncos at the AJ Bell Stadium on Sunday.
The Red Devils felt the wrath of their owner after last week’s 42-6 reverse at Wakefield, a result that ended their hopes of still qualifying for the playoffs.
Making the post season was a target Koukash set the squad at the beginning of the campaign, and his response to missing out was to cancel their end-of-season party for the squad and suggest their futures could be jeopardy if they didn’t start playing for the shirt.
Gareth Hock is still suspended but this week has rocked Salford by issuing a written transfer request – one the club have accepted providing they get an offer they consider appropriate.
Head coach Iestyn Harris names the same 19-man squad that was selected to take on the Wildcays, with forward Steve Rapira still away on compassionate leave.
The Broncos, meanwhile, will be hoping to heap more misery on Mr Koukash by recording just their second win of what has been a tough campaign.
Their solitary triumph came against Leeds Rhinos in round 24 but they have now conceded 1,133 points through 25 matches, 46 of them last Saturday when they were well beaten away at Catalan Dragons.
Coach Joe Grima – who has been busy this week making signings as they prepare for life in the Championship – has made just one change to his squad, Toby Everett replacing Alex Foster.
Salford: Ashurst, Caton-Brown, Chase, Dixon, Evalds, Fages, D. Griffin, J. Griffin, Hansen, Johnson, Lee, Locke, Morley, Puletua, Sa'u, Tasi, Tomkins, J. Walne, Walton.
London Broncos: Atkins, Cook, Dixon, Dollapi, Drinkwater,Everett, Griffin, Farrar, Keyes, Krasniqi, Mataitonga, McMeeken, Minns, Moore, Slyney, Thomas, Vea, Wallace, Woodburn-Hall.
