Salford Red Devils v Wakefield Trinity Preview
The Salford Red Devils take on Wakefield Trinity in a matchup between 2 teams who know that matches between the 2 could go a long way between setting up for a good season or for setting them up for a relegation battle.
Both clubs have the quality to defeat anybody on their day but both also have a lack of depth that means they can quickly go on a run of losses.
That makes both teams difficult to predict and it means that both teams will likely, and really should be, targeting matches between the 2 as ones to win and that sets this up to be a fascinating game and one that will give a big insight into both teams seasons going forward.
Both teams go into the match with just the 1 win so far this season but the hosts have lost 3 games with Wakefield losing 2.
Salford welcome back Lee Mossop, Dan Sarginson and Josh Johnson.
Wakefield are without the injured duo of Joe Arundel and Ryan Hampshire. Connor Bailey and Alex Walker step in whilst Chris Green could also make a debut.
The AJ Bell Stadium play host to this one and whilst the ground can often lead to a poor atmosphere for matches, when the hosts are on top, there fans have shown that they will back them.
The stadium is a tidy, modern ground but it has failed to grab the attendance of the local fanbase and that can be a problem for the hosts but in a match that will likely be close throughout, the home fans should come to the fore and show there backing throughout.
Salford Red Devils v Wakefield Trinity Prediction
Here at RLBet, we give out predict for who we think will win and also what we think the winning margin will be but don’t forget that the unpredictable nature of the Super League, this should only be seen as our view.
This is a tough game to predict as both teams are struggling for form and both are lacking confidence.
If Wakey can put in the same level of performance as they did in the first half against Cas, they should win, but if they put in the same level as the second half they will lose as whilst struggling, the Red Devils have been relatively consistent.
With that in mind, we are going to back the away side for the win as they have shown that they have a level to step up to but this one could easily go either way in what will likely be a scrappy game.
