Hull KR coach Craig Sandercock admitted his side were below their best as they made hard work of beating lowly Salford 28-18 at MS3 Craven Park.
The Robins trailed 18-6 at the interval but a few words from Sandercock did the trick as they scored four unanswered tries in the second half.
"Full credit to Salford because they had a great completion rate in the first half," Sandercock said.
"We dropped a lot of ball and full credit to them for their half-time lead.
"The second half still wasn't great but our defence was really good and I knew if we could stop them from scoring we'd be okay. It was pleasing to get the win.
"Our ball control was less than satisfactory in the first half, and it wasn't up to first grade standard. We needed to address that and we did.
"It was a good defensive display in the second half. We turned the screw well and in the end we did enough to get the win."
Salford coach Brian Noble said: "We are disappointed that the game slipped away from us. We contributed to that ourselves but Hull KR took a step up as well.
"They looked after the ball better in the second half and put us under more pressure. We couldn't do the things we were doing in the first half.
"A couple of individual went away from the game plan because we were playing well and they were getting giddy.
"The reason we were playing well was because we were playing well as a team. The effort was fantastic on a day as hot as it was."Super League. Click here to bet.
