Huddersfield quickly moved back to the top of the Stobart Super League table on Good Friday courtesy of a 36-10 win over the Salford at the Galpharm Stadium.

Jodie Broughton opened the scoring for the visitors, but tries from Jermaine McGillvary and Michael Lawrence turned things around for Nathan Brown's men.

Joel Moon scored Salford's second try of the game although that was as good as it got for the visitors, Huddersfield bagging the next four scores to secure the two points.

The victory moves them a point clear of Hull FC, who secured an emphatic 36-6 success over rivals Hull KR in the East Yorkshire derby, and Warrington.

Blistering start

Salford made a blistering start when Broughton dived over for a try just five minutes into the contest to mark his first start after a five-match injury lay-off.

Daniel Holdsworth missed the kick and that allowed the Giants to quickly take the lead through a converted McGillvary touchdown.

Luke George, who has scored three hat-tricks this season, then raced down the left touchline and passed inside for the on-rushing Lawrence.

Lawrence, making his 100th appearance for Huddersfield at the age of just 21, powered to the line unmarked for a converted score and 12-4 lead.

Double movement

Leroy Cudjoe thought he'd sneaked over the line past two defenders after 23 minutes, but referee Robert Hicks ruled the try out for a double movement.

Salford then reduced the deficit after 25 minutes with a sweeping cross-field move that ended with Luke Patten putting Moon in for a try in the left corner.

But the home side strengthened their grip on the contest with hooker Tommy Lee's first try, which was created by a brilliant off-load from David Faiumu as he held off two defenders.

Danny Brough added his third conversion of the match, and 24th of a productive season so far, to put Huddersfield 18-10 up at the break.

Ruthless

The Giants then ruthlessly put Salford to the sword in the second half. A slick interchange of passes in the 44th minute between Cudjoe, Brough and Lawrence saw a try for the former ruled out.

But two touchdowns in four minutes midway through the half killed off any hope of a Salford recovery.

Shaun Lunt went over after 49 minutes and Lee added his second soon after, Brough converting both to push the Giants into a comfortable lead.

A Greg Eden solo run led to Kevin Brown going over and, although that try was also ruled out, Eden then dived over late on for a converted touchdown that added further gloss to the scoreline.
