Head coach Ian Watson has warned Salford against complacency ahead of Sunday’s clash at Halifax. The Red Devils have made a good start to their Qualifiers campaign, beating Hull KR and Widnes Vikings to sit top of the standings on points difference ahead of Leeds Rhinos.
Next up for Salford is a trip to the Shay to take on Halifax and Watson, who has been in charge since 2015, has told his players not to let their guard down against Championship opposition.
“We’ve earned a little bit of time off and that will benefit the players,” he said. “We’ve won two from two, but we’ve got to make sure that our attitude which we talk about in terms of work ethic and mentality is here going into our game against Halifax.
“It’s all about professionalism going through the Qualifiers. We’ve managed to overcome two Super League teams but our professionalism comes into account when we have to face the Championship sides such as Halifax and Toronto.”
