Salford suffered their third defeat in four matches since Brian Noble took over, missing the chance to move off the bottom of the Super League table in the process, after a 28-7 defeat at the hands of Bradford.

Victory proved to be a huge relief for the Bulls who recorded their first win in four games to move within striking distance of the top four in the table.

Noble's old club were too good for the Reds as on-loan second rower Matty Blythe scored two of the Bulls' five tries with Luke Gale, Matt Diskin and Adrian Purtell also going over for the visitors.

Salford, beaten 36-24 at Odsal on April 1, went into the clash having conceded 98 points in their previous two matches.

Fast-paced

The signs weren't good for them when Bradford went in front early on, Jarrod Sammut taking Michael Platt's pass at speed to send Gale sprinting 60 metres to score, Sammut also booting the conversion.

A Platt mistake from Mark Sneyd's kick allowed Ryan McGoldrick to scoot over on the half hour with Sneyd converting to make it 6-6. McGoldrick then edged the Reds ahead with a drop-goal after Wayne Godwin had almost nipped over.

Salford's joy was short-lived, though, with Blythe bagging two quic-kfire tries.

The Warrington player was on hand to capitalise on Sneyd's mistake from a Danny Addy kick and then took Sammut's inside pass to power through a weak defence.

Sammut, who was in top form at full-back, landed both conversions to fire the Bulls ahead 18-7 at the break.

Play was held up eight minutes before Salford sub Chris Nero was carried off on a stretcher with his neck in a brace.

The Bulls wrapped up victory when Diskin burrowed over on the hour to make it 24-7, before Purtell crossed two minutes from time to round out the scoring.
