London claimed their first win of the season and climbed off the bottom of the Super League table with a 38-4 victory at fellow strugglers Salford.

The Reds had claimed their own first win just last Sunday with an impressive comeback against Hull KR, but they could not build on that success.

The Broncos had conceded 138 points in four opening defeats but were in front 22-0 at half-time, with Kieran Dixon and Chris Bailey each crossing twice in a dominant victory.

Dixon broke the deadlock after 16 minutes when Jack Murphy and Danny Williams missed a Craig Gower kick, with Michael Witt tagging on the conversion.

Mark Sneyd's midfield break caused London problems but his kick was too deep for Williams, then Sneyd had a try disallowed before Dan Sarginson almost wriggled over for the Broncos.

London stretched the lead to 10-0 on the half hour after Ashley Gibson failed to collect a Gower kick and Michael Channing accepted the gift.

Salford's plight worsened just before the break when Dixon followed his own kick ahead to touch down and Witt's conversion made it 16-0.

Luke Dorn added to Salford's woes by going over for a converted try to make it 22-0 at the break.

Williams hobbled off for the Reds after being targeted by the Broncos kickers throughout the first half.

Dorn went close early in the second half after another Gower kick rebounded off the post.

Sneyd's weaving run almost brought Salford's first try but London were doing the basics right.

Bailey added a fifth try for London 10 minutes from time before Wayne Godwin's late consolation for Salford.
